Patio Grouting Frodsham

Patio Grouting Frodsham: With old patios one of the main problems is with crumbling joints or grouting. If this kind of thing is happening with your patio, you must act, because before long your patio will start to look very messy with weeds and grass sprouting up between the joints. To take care of this, you could perhaps dowse the weeds with boiling water which is a good non-chemical solution to destroy weeds, or alternatively you could employ an effective weedkiller. Repairing the grout is not simple and the toughest thing is to remove the existing grout which is most likely to be a sand and cement mortar. If the patio slabs are loose and rocking there is little point repairing the joints since it will not solve the problem, and you need to to have the whole thing re-slabbed. Clearing away the damaged mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade, will be the next task if your patio slabs are relatively stable. Give the whole area a thorough cleanup once you're done and re-grout the slabs with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry process.
