Patio Grouting Sandy

Patio Grouting Sandy: With old, pre-existing patios one of the main problems is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this occurs your patio will look very messy and likely have weeds and grass establishing themselves between the slabs. To deal with this, you could saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a superb non-chemical way to get rid of weeds, or you could use a good weedkiller. Repairing the grouting isn't easy and the toughest job is to remove the old grout which is probably going to be a cement and sand mix. If your slabs are loose and moving repairing the joints is pointless as it won't solve the issue, and you really need to get the entire thing re-done. If you decide that the slabs of your patio are completely stable and secure, the next step is going to be to scrape out the damaged mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. You'll be able to undertake the re-grouting with a polymeric or resin grout, once the joints have been carefully cleaned. Some are applied using the wet slurry approach while others use a dry brush-in system. (Tags: Grouting Patios Sandy, Patio Grouting Sandy, Patio Re-Grouting Sandy)
