Patio Grouting Aldridge

Patio Grouting Aldridge (01543)

Patio Grouting Aldridge: Cracked or eroding joints or grouting is one of the key issues with old patios. If this occurs your patio area can look a mess and probably have grass and weeds establishing themselves between the slabs. You can minimize this issue by the application of a good weedkiller or maybe by dowsing the weeds with boiling water which is an excellent, but mostly unknown, non-chemical way to destroy weeds in this situation. It is usually a tricky job to replace the grout, and the most trying task of them all is the removal of the old, eroded grouting. Having the entire thing re-slabbed is the only real solution if the paving slabs are loose and moving, because correcting the joints alone is not going to address the problem. If you verify that the slabs on your patio area are sufficiently secure, the next step will be to wheedle out the damaged cement mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire area a good cleanup when you're finished and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these kinds of grout are applied using the wet slurry technique, while others use the dry brush-in process.
