Building Sand

Bulk bags weighing a minimum of 800 -1000kg.

The main uses for building sand are:

• Brick laying mortar
• Pointing
• Rendering

Sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles. Often called soft sand, building sand is characterised by its fine grains when compared to rougher sands such as sharp sands. The fineness of the sand used determines how smooth the resultant mix is, since neither lime or cement will add to the graininess of the product. Our building sand is sourced from quarries where it is washed and dried for both cleanliness and better workability. This process of washing the sand removes a large percentage of the clay content making it less sticky and improving its overall durability over time.

The colour of building sand will depend on several factors, including the region it is sourced from and the clay content. These can range from light greys through to yellows and darker oranges.


If colour is and issue, please contact our sales team on 01274 602367 or email sales@buildershoponline.co.uk where we'll be able to advise the type/colour for your area.
