Patio Grouting Hindley: With existing patios one of the chief problems is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this occurs your patio may look awful and likely have weeds and grass growing up in between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to relieve this annoying problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a good non-chemical way to eliminate weeds. Repairing the grout can be a tricky job and the hardest thing is to remove the existing grout which will probably be a cement and sand mix. If the slabs are loose and rocking repairing the joints is pointless because it won't have much effect, and you really need to have the whole area re-slabbed. If your slabs are reasonably secure you can go ahead and rake out the damaged mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire patio a good clean-up once you're finished and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry method while others use a dry brush-in technique. (Tags: Patio Grouting Hindley, Patio Re-Grouting Hindley)
