Building Sand

Building Sand Supplier In London

Building Sand is a soft mortar sand that is used in nearly every part of the construction industry. It is much softer than grit or sharp sand and contains much finer particles than other types of sand.

Main uses:

  • Bricklaying
  • Internal rendering
  • Paving
  • Bedding of pond liners

It is a naturally occurring material composed of fine rock and mineral elements. Building Sand (BS) has a constant colour and quantity. However it does come in different colours, ranging from light greys through to yellow and dark oranges. Colour is dependent on the region it is sourced from and the local clay content. A major advantage of Building sand is that it can be stored outside without wastage.

BS is a material in extreme demand from the construction industry. It is purchased with care and attention from trusted suppliers such as ourselves. Building sand must be clean and free from stones and impurities. The fineness of the sand determines how smooth the resultant mix will be, since neither lime or cement will add to the graininess of the product. When it’s used for bricklaying and pointing surfaces it creates a desired smooth finish.

Building Sand is typically delivered via 8×4 or 4×2 Grab Hire or Tipper Hire. Between 5 – 15 tonnes can be delivered via a Grab lorry and 20 tonnes via Tipper.
