Patio Grouting Horley

Patio Grouting Horley: With old, pre-existing patios one of the key issues is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this happens the patio will look awful and no doubt have weeds and grass establishing themselves in between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to ease the problem or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is a very good non-chemical solution to eliminate weeds. Re-doing the grouting can be a tricky job and the toughest thing is to rake out the existing grout which is most likely to be a sand and cement mortar. If your patio slabs are loose and rocking repairing the joints is pointless as it will not make much difference, and you actually need to get the whole thing re-done. If the slabs are reasonably secure you can go ahead and hook out the damaged mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire patio a thorough cleanup when you are finished and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in technique.
