Patio Grouting Newton Abbot

Patio Grouting Newton Abbot: With old, pre-existing patios one of the main issues is with crumbling grouting or joints. If this occurs your patio may look untidy and have weeds and grass poking up between the slabs. You can constantly use weedkiller to ease this annoying problem or dowse the weeds with boiling water which is an effective non-chemical way to eradicate weeds. Repairing the grouting can be a big job and the hardest job is to rake out the old grout which will probably be a cement and sand mortar. When all is said and done there is no point repairing the joints if the paving slabs are rocking and loose, since it will not solve the problem, and having the entire area re-slabbed is the only real answer. Clearing away the damaged mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder, will be the next stage if your patio slabs are secure and stable. When you have finished, you must give the whole patio a really good cleaning and undertake the re-grouting using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these kinds of grouts are applied using a dry brush-in process, while others use the wet slurry procedure.
