Patio Grouting Paignton

Patio Grouting Paignton: With existing patios one of the key problems is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this occurs your patio can look very messy and likely have grass and weeds establishing themselves between the slabs. You could continually use weedkiller to ease this issue or pour boiling water on the weeds which is the best non-chemical technique to get rid of weeds. Repairing the grouting is not simple and the hardest task is to rake out the existing grout which is most likely a cement and sand mortar. If the slabs are loose and unstable it is pointless re-doing the joints because it is unlikely to solve the issue, and you actually need to get the entire patio re-done. If the slabs are pretty firm you can press on and rake out the old mortar by using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the entire area a good clean-up once you are finished and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry process.
