Patio Grouting Earl Shilton: With existing patios one of the main issues is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this sort of thing is happening with your patio, you must act, because before very long your patio will begin to look messy with weeds and grass growing up between the joints. You can overcome this issue by the use of a decent weedkiller or even by pouring boiling water on the weeds which is a very good, but largely unknown, non-chemical technique to destroy weeds in this situation. Repairing the grouting can be a tricky job and the toughest task is to get rid of the existing grout which is most likely a cement and sand mortar. Having the whole thing re-slabbed is the only real solution if the patio slabs are rocking and loose, given that fixing the grouting joints won't solve the issue. If you determine that the slabs of your patio are sufficiently firm and immovable, the next step is going to be to wheedle out the old cement mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. When you're done, you should give the entire patio a good clean-up and carry out the re-grouting process with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system.
