Remodeling a back patio or yard with Indian sandstone is difficult and expensive enough as it is – especially if you plan on saving some money by installing it yourself. That is why we put together a list of the 3 best grout for Indian sandstone reviews, highlighting what each one does best and who each one is ideal for.
1. Sika FastFix Grout – Best Budget Grout for Indian Sandstone
For those looking for a construction materials company with plenty of experience, look no further as Sika’s history extends back over a century. Though always focused on construction materials, the company has expanded its product line to include a wide variety of different chemicals and other products related to commercial and industrial construction.
Still, the Sika FastFix Grout offers plenty to love with one of its best qualities coming in the form of its price which is an inexpensive £2 p6 per kg. To make sure you truly get your money’s worth, Sika went the extra mile by also making sure that their Indian sandstone grout also provides good coverage at 1.4 m2 per kg.
On the other hand, when purchasing a more budget-friendly product, you should expect some give and take and the Sika FastFix Grout takes your time with a slower curing rate. It is also worth noting that Indian sandstone comes in 3 different colors, but this grout may well stain the pavers a different color.
Still, the Sika FastFix Grout works well for a wide variety of different applications as it boasts the shortest minimum fill distance on our list at only 20 mm deep. On top of that, you do not need to worry about thick grout lines either as this Indian sandstone grout fills in gaps of at least 5 mm wide.
2. Supreme Landscaping EASYJoint Grout – Fastest Curing Grout
Supreme Landscaping Products cannot claim the same kind of storied history that some of its competitors can, but it does not need to with results like these. However, it is also worth considering that Supreme Landscaping does not specialize exclusively in even construction products, offering a wide range of outdoor consumer goods in general.
That said, the Supreme Landscaping EASYJoint Grout stands out on our list for how much time it saves you as the grout begins curing within an hour and only takes a handful of hours to set. On the other hand, what this Indian sandstone grout saves you in time is charges in money as it costs £3 p31 per kg.
It also does not help that this already expensive Indian sandstone grout does not provide as good of coverage as some of its competitors with the best estimate just clearing 1 m2 per kg and poor estimates falling just under ¼ m2 per kg. Still, you get plenty of color choices to choose from without the worry of the grout staining the stone.
One of the more noteworthy aspects of the Supreme Landscaping EASYJoint Grout is how narrow of a gap it can fill, requiring only 3 mm to set. While not the shallowest on our list, this Indian sandstone grout also fills in fairly short gaps with a minimum depth requirement of just 25 mm.
3. Bostik Patio Grout – Best Coverage Grout
While some companies on our list provide some assurance with a long-standing history, none of them can compete with Bostik which traces its lineage back to the 18th-century. However, it is worth noting that while Bostik specializes in construction materials, it narrows that focus further with adhesive construction materials specifically.
This experience shows itself in the Bostik Patio Grout which meets or exceeds industry standards, starting with a curing time of as little as 10 hours. Of course, like with most Indian sandstone grouts that save you time, it ends up costing you money to do so to the tune of £3 p31 per kg.
Thankfully, that investment pays off in other ways as well as the Bostik Patio Grout potentially offers the best coverage we reviewed with a good estimate at 2 ⅓ m2 per kg – though it may cover as little as ½ m2 per kg depending. Still, this Indian sandstone grout also does not require deep channels to work with a minimum depth of only 25 mm required.
That said, it is the width of the Bostik Patio Grout that truly stands out with a minimum width of 5 mm – par for the course – but a maximum width of 30 mm which exceeds that of its competitors. Outside of a high cost, the only other potential issues with this Indian sandstone grout is that it only comes in 2 different colors.
In the end, the best grout for Indian sandstone will depend as much on the size of your paving as its coloration – or even your budget and time constraints. If you need a cheap option, the Sika FastFix Grout not only comes in at a low price but also offers consistently good coverage, further increasing its value.
Of course, you may not always have the luxury of sacrificing time for money, in which case you might want to check out the Supreme Landscaping EASYJoint Grout and its fast curing times. On the other hand, if you do not mind paying for it, the Bostik Patio Grout provides a great mix of features across the board.
