Patio Grouting Bideford: Grouted joints that are cracked or disintegrating is the main issue you will encounter with older, pre-existing patios. If this occurs your patio area can look a mess and no doubt have weeds and grass growing up between the slabs. You could continually use weedkiller to relieve this annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a fantastic non-chemical solution to kill weeds. It really isn't an easy task to fix a patio that has deteriorated badly, and cleaning out the old. eroded sand and cement grouting is the most taxing job of all. If your patio slabs are loose and rocking re-doing the joints is pointless as it won't solve the problem, and you actually need to have the entire thing re-done.

When you have finished, you should give the whole area a thorough clean-up and carry out the re-grouting using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these forms of grouts are applied using a dry brush-in approach, while others use the wet slurry procedure.
