Patio Cleaning Lincoln

Patio Cleaning Lincoln: If you're laying an entire new patio in Lincoln then you will most likely not be immediately concerned about patio cleaning, although you'll need to do this fairly regularly so as to keep your new patio in tip top condition.

Patio Re-Grouting Lincoln

Patio Grouting Lincoln: With old, pre-existing patios one of the key problems is with crumbling grouting or joints.

Replacing the grout isn't easy and the toughest thing is to get rid of the existing grout which is most likely to be a cement and sand mortar. If the patio slabs are loose and unstable repairing the joints is pointless because it is unlikely to have much effect, and you really need to have the entire thing re-done. If the slabs are pretty secure you can rake out the damaged mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole patio a thorough cleanup once you're finished and re-joint the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry method while others use a dry brush-in system.
