Patio Grouting Chatham: Cracked or eroding grouting or joints is one of the key problems with existing patios. If this happens your patio may look awful and will doubtless have weeds and grass growing up in between the slabs.

If the patio slabs are loose and rocking replacing the joints is pointless because it is unlikely to solve the problem, and you need to to have the entire patio re-done. If you decide that the slabs of your patio area are completely firm, the next step is going to be to scrape out the damaged mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole area a good clean-up when you are done and re-joint the slabs with a polymeric or resin grout. Some use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry approach.
