Mortar Production

Building sand plays a crucial role in Mortar Production. It is mixed with cement and water to create a workable mortar, ideal for laying bricks and blocks. The fine texture of building sand ensures a smooth finish and strong bonding between the masonry units.


It is also used to prepare pointing mortar, which fills and seals joints between bricks or stones, ensuring weatherproofing and structural integrity.

Plastering and Rendering

– Internal Plastering: Building sand is mixed with lime and/or cement to create plaster to coat interior walls and ceilings. It provides a smooth finish suitable for painting or wallpapering.

– External Rendering: Used in rendering mixtures for coating exterior walls, providing a durable, weather-resistant finish. The smooth texture of building sand allows for a neat and even application.

Floor Screeds

Building sand is used in floor screeds, a layer of material applied to a concrete subfloor to create a smooth, level surface. This is essential for the installation of flooring materials such as tiles, carpet, or hardwood.

General Construction Uses

– Bedding Material: It can be used as a bedding layer for paving slabs and blocks in pathways, driveways, and patios, providing a stable base and helping with levelling.

– Fill and Levelling: Building sand can be used to fill gaps, level surfaces, and create gradients in various construction projects.

Where It Comes From

Our aggregate materials are obtained from our quarries in Stamford, Rutland, and other surrounding areas.

Most quarry material is naturally formed, so shape, size and colour will vary. It all comes down to the screening process to achieve uniform and consistent material properties. Aggregates are as good as their processing. Through mining, crushing, washing and separating, these processes only, when delivered skillfully with the best machine technology and workforce, can produce a quality aggregate. And that success relies on our industry’s hardworking men and women and our great team here at Bullimore Aggregates.
