Patio Grouting Aberdare

Patio Re-Grouting Aberdare (01685)

Patio Grouting Aberdare: Grouted joints which are crumbling or cracked is the main problem that you will encounter with older, pre-existing patios. If this happens the patio area can look a mess and no doubt have grass and weeds poking up in between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to ease the problem or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is the best non-chemical solution to kill weeds. It is often a tricky job to restore the grout, and the hardest task of all is the removing of the old, eroded grout. If your slabs are rocking and loose there is no point replacing the joints since it will not solve the issue, and you actually need to get the entire area re-slabbed. Clearing away the old mortar with a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade, is going to be the next step if your slabs are stable. You can carry out the re-grouting procedure with a polymeric or resin grout, once the area has been meticulously washed and cleaned. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system.

Decking vs Patio

Decking or Patio Aberdare?

You've identified an area in your garden in Aberdare that is the ideal position for relaxing outside, and you wish to install a deck or a patio. But, which option best matches your requirements?

If you happen to be sticking to a tight budget decking will likely be your first choice. Measure for measure, decking is cheaper and quicker to construct than a slab or stone patio of an equivalent size. If you are concerned about the long-term maintenance of wooden decking you can opt for composite materials which require less maintenance and enjoy a longer life. Of course there's always some routine annual maintenance to think about, but this is the case for patios as well.

Patios will be your first choice if you are looking for a durable, long-lasting area which stands up to heavy use and various weather conditions in Aberdare. A decent patio should last a lifetime, so long as the foundation and base have been prepared correctly using right materials, and even should a tile or slab crack, it can be exchanged relatively simply. On the other hand, a split or damaged deck plank or board, needs to be replaced immediately, because it will create a hazardous trip area on even a low-level deck. Both decks and patios are ideal alternatives which will provide you with an outdoor area for the entire family to enjoy and take pleasure in.
