I can't find the Moderno or Ubrania stainless steel spark arrestor at my retailer, what can I do?

Because stainless steel spark arrestors are more expensive than painted black steel spark arrestors, they are often part of special orders from retailers. We invite you to contact us at [email protected] It will be our pleasure to help you in your research.


There are white streaks that appear on the products, what should I do?

This phenomenon is completely natural and is called “efflorescence”. 

Efflorescence is a whitish deposit that appears from time to time on the surface of concrete products. Sometimes the salts in the cement and the aggregates embedded in the product are extracted by the absorbed water and transported to the surface where the water evaporates and the salts are deposited. The development of these deposits is normal and common with concrete products and other masonry products composed of cement. 

Usually, the efflorescence stops developing after 3 to 24 months following the manufacture of the product. Please note that the salt will disappear over time. Concrete follows a natural process that is not harmful to Patio Drummond products. This process does not constitute a manufacturing defect. 

It is possible to clean traces of efflorescence. However, Patio Drummond recommends waiting one year after the installation of the product before proceeding with the cleaning. The efflorescence can be cleaned with an efflorescence cleaner sold in hardware stores. Please be sure to follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. 

*** Following these explanations, Patio Drummond declines all responsibility for this natural phenomenon inherent to concrete products. ***

What thickness of pavers should i use for a driveway?

We recommend using a paver of at least 60 mm (2 3/8”). The thicker your paver is, the more you will avoid potentially overloading it. An overload could, in the short or long term, damage the product.

Polymer sand

What is polymer sand?

Polymer sand is the ultimate jointing material in the landscaping industry. Made up of fine grains, to which is added a mixture of additives that activate on contact with water, polymer sand acts as an ultra-powerful bonding agent that holds several concrete pavers firmly and evenly together. 

Polymer sand is used to fill the joint, the empty space between each paver in a landscaping project


What is the purpose of polymer sand? Why use it?

Polymer sand is used to achieve optimal joint stabilization, prevent weed growth, and prevent ant infestations. 

More durable and resistant than a conventional joint, the polymer joint considerably increases the life expectancy of paving installations. In addition, the polymer joint does not crumble or disintegrate: grains of sand remain in the joint rather than in the house or at the bottom of the pool.


What colour is the polymer sand?

Formerly considered a purely structural element, special attention is now paid to the colour of the joints of a paving surface. Today, sands are available in more than twenty colours.


Is polymer sand complicated to install?

In addition to offering unequalled joint performance, the application of polymer sand is easy and very fast. Simply follow the instructions on the sandbags, which will allow you to obtain the best results.
