Patio Re-Grouting Newcastle

Patio Grouting Newcastle: With old, pre-existing patios one of the key problems is with cracked joints or grouting. When this happens the patio can look messy and likely have grass and weeds growing up between the slabs. You can continually use weedkiller to ease this issue or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is a very good non-chemical solution to kill weeds. Replacing the grouting can be challenging and the toughest thing is to get rid of the old grout which is most likely a cement and sand mortar. If your slabs are rocking and loose re-doing the joints is pointless since it won't have much effect, and you actually need to have the whole thing re-done. If the slabs are reasonably stable and secure you can rake out the damaged mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire patio a thorough clean-up 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 technique. (Tags: Patio Grouting Newcastle, Patio Re-Grouting Newcastle)
