Patios Dewsbury

Dewsbury Patio Layers (WF12): As the spring appears every year most people contemplate spending more time in the fresh air and obviously the garden is the most obvious place for that to happen. After a rainy winter in Dewsbury, your garden is most likely to be a bit too muddy to do much, so putting in a nice new patio should be the easiest solution to make the garden more functional. If you've already got a patio but it has become wonky and covered with weeds you could possibly be considering getting a new one laid down or perhaps getting the existing one taken up and re-laid if the paving slabs are still sound and in good condition.

Though a smaller patio assignment may be a job that you could complete on your own if you are able in that kind of undertaking, it is more likely to be the case that you will have to employ a specialist Dewsbury patio layer to handle the job for you, especially for bigger patios. It isn't only the laying of your garden patio you have to consider but also the removal and disposal of the resulting waste materials plus the introduction of new patio products. You should also keep in mind that laying patios is heavy work, particularly when the existing patio was concreted in position. A big paving slab with a lump of concrete on is likely to be rather heavy, therefore at least get someone to assist you in lifting these, should you decide to do-it-yourself.

Patio Re-Grouting Dewsbury

Patio Grouting Dewsbury: With old, pre-existing patios one of the key issues is with crumbling joints or grouting. If this is the case with yours then your patio will look very messy and will doubtless have grass and weeds sprouting up between the slabs. You can continually use weedkiller to alleviate this annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a very good technique to kill weeds without using chemicals. Re-doing the grouting isn't easy and the toughest thing is to remove the old grout which is most likely a sand and cement mortar. If your paving slabs are loose and rocking it is pointless replacing the joints since it is unlikely to have much effect, and you actually need to have the entire area re-done. If your slabs are reasonably secure and stable you can hook out the damaged mortar with a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole area a good clean-up when you are done and re-grout the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry method while others use a dry brush-in system. Most specialist patio layers in Dewsbury will gladly help you with patio repointing, so get hold of one near you to get an estimate. (Tags: Patio Grouting Dewsbury, Patio Re-Grouting Dewsbury)
