Patio Re-Grouting Halewood

Patio Grouting Halewood: With existing patios one of the key issues is with cracked joints or grouting. When this happens your patio can look awful and no doubt have grass and weeds growing up between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to relieve the issue or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an excellent solution to kill weeds without using chemicals. Repairing the grout isn't easy and the toughest thing is to remove the old grout which is most likely to be a sand and cement mix. If the slabs are loose and rocking it is pointless re-doing the joints since it is unlikely to have much effect, and you actually need to get the entire thing re-done. If the slabs are secure and stable you can hook out the damaged mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire area a thorough clean-up once you're done and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry process while others use a dry brush-in system. (Tags: Patio Grouting Halewood, Patio Re-Grouting Halewood)
