Patio Grouting Folkestone

Patio Re-Grouting Folkestone (01303)

Patio Grouting Folkestone: With old patios one of the chief problems is with cracked and crumbling grouting or joints. If this kind of thing is happening with your patio, you will have to act, because in no time your patio is going to start to look messy with grass and weeds growing up through the joints. You can use weedkiller to alleviate the annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an effective non-chemical way to kill weeds. Repairing the grout can be a big job and the hardest thing is to remove the old grout which is most likely to be a sand and cement mortar. If your slabs are loose and unstable there is little point repairing the joints since it won't have much effect, and you really need to get the whole area re-slabbed. If your slabs are relatively secure you can hook out the old mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a really good clean-up when you're finished and re-grout the slabs with a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry process while others use a dry brush-in system. Most specialist Folkestone patio layers will help you with patio repointing, so get hold of one near you for a quote.
