Correctly preparing the area where your patio is to be placed is extremely important if the completed patio is to be satisfactory.

Patio Re-Grouting Bodmin

Patio Grouting Bodmin: Crumbling grouting or joints is one of the chief problems with existing patios. If this occurs your patio will look awful and no doubt have grass and weeds establishing themselves between the slabs. You can alleviate this problem by the application of a decent weedkiller or maybe by pouring boiling water on the weeds which is an effective, but mostly unrecognised, technique to get rid of weeds without using chemicals in this situation. It is often a challenging job to repair the grout, and the hardest task of them all is the removing of the old, eroded grouting. If the paving slabs are loose and rocking repairing the joints is pointless because it will not make much difference, and you need to to get the entire thing re-slabbed. Removing the damaged mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade, will be the next job if your slabs are reasonably secure. Give the whole patio a good cleanup once you are finished and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry process while others use a dry brush-in technique.
