Driveway and Patio Cleaning Bracknell: If you are installing a whole new patio in Bracknell then you will probably not be currently thinking about patio cleaning, although you will need to do this fairly regularly in order to keep your new patio in the best possible shape. If you are extending or adding onto a pre-existing patio area then it might be a good idea to get those previously laid patio slabs cleaned so that they blend in with the new slabs.

Patio Grouting Bracknell: With existing patios one of the chief problems is with cracked and crumbling grouting or joints. If this occurs the patio may look untidy and no doubt have grass and weeds sprouting up between the slabs. You can continually use weedkiller to relieve this annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an effective non-chemical technique to destroy weeds. Repairing the grouting can be a tricky job and the toughest task is to remove the old grout which is most likely a cement and sand mortar. If the patio slabs are loose and rocking there is no point replacing the joints as it is unlikely to solve the problem, and you really need to have the entire thing re-done. If the slabs are firm and stable you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire patio a good cleanup when you are done and re-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry method. (Tags: Patio Grouting Bracknell, Patio Re-Grouting Bracknell)
