Patio Re-Grouting Knaresborough

Patio Grouting Knaresborough: With existing patios one of the chief problems is with crumbling grouting or joints. If this is the case with yours then your patio can look a mess and probably have weeds and grass establishing themselves in between the slabs. To take care of this, you could pour boiling water on the weeds which is a good non-chemical solution to destroy weeds, or you could apply a decent weedkiller. It is often a big job to replace the grout, and the most trying task of them all is the removing of the old, eroded grouting. By and large there is no point replacing the joints if the patio slabs are loose and rocking, because it will not have much effect, and getting the whole area re-slabbed is the only possible solution. Removing the old mortar with a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade, will be the next measure if your slabs are pretty firm and stable. Give the entire patio a thorough cleanup when you are done and re-grout the slabs with a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry approach. (Tags: Patio Grouting Knaresborough, Patio Re-Grouting Knaresborough, Grouting Patios Knaresborough)
