Patio Re-Grouting March

Patio Grouting March: With old, pre-existing patios one of the main problems is with crumbling grouting or joints. When this occurs the patio can look untidy and probably have weeds and grass poking up in between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to alleviate the annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a good non-chemical solution to kill weeds. Replacing the grouting can be challenging and the toughest task is to rake out the existing grout which is most likely to be a cement and sand mix. If the slabs are loose and moving there is little point repairing the joints as it won't have much effect, and you really need to get the whole area re-slabbed. If your slabs are secure and stable you can rake out the old mortar by using 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 are done and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry approach. (Tags: Patio Grouting March, Patio Re-Grouting March)
