Cracking is a sign of grout failure from heavy traffic or harsh freeze-thaw cycles.

A common problem in cold places, unit paver (brick, concrete, natural stone) installation begin to break apart and the grout fails. Heavy freeze thaw areas only make this problem worse.

Milestone Imports provides sanded epoxy jointing mortars which stops that from happening! These products have been around Europe and the Scandinavian countries where unit pavers are very common for decades with an incredible record of success.

The producer of these products is GftK in Germany.

The method that they use in Norway for driveways, parking lots, streets, roundabouts and other heavy traffic areas is simple but extremely effective, it is known as the Norwegian Method.
