Flexible Filler for Brickwork


Postby Lee H » Sun Mar 16, 2008 2:15 pm

I have a small drive area that consists of brick paviers. There is roughly a 10cm gap all the way round between the paviers and a wall on three sides. The gap gets full of dirt and grass and weeds grow. If I clean it out, is there some form of mastic I could use to to plug it. I have tried cement but it ends up cracking. I believe I have seen mastic strips inserted in long wall runs. Would the same stuff be able to do the job. Thanks. Lee

LEE,

IF AS YOU SAY THE GAP IS "10cm" THEN WHY DONT YOU PUT MORE BRICKS DOWN.

IF AS I SUSPECT THE GAP IS "10mm" THEN YES THERE ARE FILLERS AVAILABLE FOR THIS.

GOOGLE "EXPANSION JOINT FILLERS".
