Pointing patios, paving slabs & flagstones

Completely fill paving joints & remove air pockets

When using PointMaster, new mortar is applied at right angles to the joint bed. This means that the cement cavity is filled to the back of the joint and ensures that paving joints are completely filled.

If the slab has become undermined and is unstable, fresh mortar will often penetrate underneath and fill the void. Slab stability can be restored, often without re-laying.

Using regular mortar combined with the accuracy of the Point Master is more effective than alternative methods, such as using dry cement or brush-in compounds, as gaps and air pockets are removed and a "complete fill" is ensured.

Watch the pointing patio & paving slabs video.

The speed and accuracy of the Point Master tool is apparent when pointing even sided patio slab joints. It is highly effective on irregular slab joints too.

Where the joints are even, press the plunger as you move along the joint using a continuous sliding motion. If the joints are uneven or irregular, use the "insert - inject - remove" technique. For both methods, pointing takes minutes instead of hours.

In the video we are using a good quality, bagged, ready-mixed mortar. You can also use self-mixed mortar & gain equally good results.

On regular sided paving and patio slabs, the application of mortar is fast and precise

Application of mortar is fast and precise

Where the paving foundation contains air pockets underneath the mortar joint, the tool can improve the foundation of the slab as mortar is forced underneath into the gap. This will reduce the chance of the slab moving under-foot and thus further enhances the life of the surface.

On regular sided Paving and Patio slabs, the application of mortar is fast and precise; as we show on our demonstration video, where we fill 7, 45cm slab joints in just 25 seconds and with one fill of the tool.

At whatever speed you work pointing is much simpler and many times faster when compared to other methods.This tool provides a cost effective and simple solution to pointing patios, paving slabs or flags.
