Patios Ascot

Ascot Patio Layers (SL5): When springtime arrives every year many of us dream of spending much more time outside and obviously the garden (for those who have one) is the most obvious place for that to happen. After a gloomy and wet winter in Ascot, the garden might be a bit too muddy to do much, therefore installing a fabulous new patio could be the best answer to this problem. If you've already got a patio but it is wonky and overgrown with weeds you might well be thinking about having a new one put in or perhaps just lifting and re-laying the existing one if the paving slabs are still okay.

While a small patio assignment is perhaps something you could carry out by yourself if you're keen on this sort of work, it is more likely to be the case that you will want to hire the services of a professional Ascot patio layer to do the project on your behalf, especially for more substantial patios. It is not just the installing of your garden patio that you should think about but also the removal and disposal of the resulting waste materials and the introduction of the new patio supplies. You need to keep in mind that installing patios is fairly heavy work, especially when the old slabs were bedded in concrete. A large paving slab with a chunk of concrete on is likely to be rather heavy, so at the very least get someone to help you lift these, if you choose to tackle it yourself.

Patio Pressure Cleaning Ascot

Patio Cleaning Ascot: If you are laying a whole new patio in Ascot then you will probably not be too concerned about patio cleaning, though you'll need to be doing this fairly regularly so as to keep your new patio in tip top shape. If you are extending or adding to an existing patio area then you might want to have those old patio slabs cleaned so that they blend in with the new slabs. Typically patio cleaning is done by power washing or chemical cleaning and most local Ascot patio cleaning specialists will probably offer both of these services. Professional cleaners use very high pressure equipment which is a lot better than the type of jet washer many people have in their garden shed or garage.

Patio Grouting Ascot: With existing patios one of the chief problems is with crumbling and cracked joints or grouting. If this happens the patio area will look awful and likely have weeds and grass establishing themselves between the slabs. You could constantly use weedkiller to ease the annoying problem or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is a fantastic non-chemical way to kill weeds. Repairing the grouting can be challenging and the hardest task is to rake out the old grout which will probably be a sand and cement mix. If your patio slabs are loose and unstable there is no point replacing the joints as it won't make much difference, and you need to to have the whole patio re-done. If your slabs are pretty secure and stable you can press on and hook out the old mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a thorough cleanup when you're finished and re-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system. (Tags: Patio Grouting Ascot, Patio Re-Grouting Ascot)
