Patio Grouting Leigh-on-Sea

Patio Re-Grouting Leigh-on-Sea (01702)

Patio Grouting Leigh-on-Sea: Crumbling and cracked joints or grouting is one of the chief problems with old patios. Whenever you're up against this scenario, you will in all probability have weeds and grass poking up between your slabs and the whole area will look untidy. You can alleviate this problem by the use of a decent weedkiller or maybe by dowsing the weeds with boiling water which is a very good, but mostly unknown, technique to destroy weeds without chemicals in cases like this. Replacing the grout can be a big job and the toughest job is to remove the old grout which is most likely a cement and sand mortar. If the slabs are loose and moving there is no point repairing the joints because it won't solve the problem, and you need to to get the whole thing re-slabbed. If your slabs are relatively stable and firm you can press on and rake out the damaged mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. When you have finished, you will need to give the whole area a really good clean-up and complete the re-grouting using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these types of grout are applied using a dry brush-in approach, while others use the wet slurry technique.
