Patio Grouting Bridgend

Patio Grouting Bridgend: With old, pre-existing patios one of the main issues is with cracked and crumbling grouting or joints. If this occurs the patio will look very messy and likely have weeds and grass growing up between the slabs. You could constantly use weedkiller to relieve the issue or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is an excellent non-chemical solution to kill weeds. Replacing the grout isn't easy and the hardest thing is to remove the existing grout which is probably going to be a sand and cement mix. If your paving slabs are loose and moving there is no point replacing the joints because it won't make much difference, and you really need to get the entire area re-done. If the slabs are reasonably firm you can go ahead and rake out the old mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a thorough clean-up once you are finished and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system. Most professional patio layers in Bridgend will help you with patio repointing, so try contacting one near you to get a quote. (Tags: Patio Grouting Bridgend, Patio Re-Grouting Bridgend)
