Patio Cleaning Sedgley

Driveway and Patio Cleaning Sedgley: If you're installing a whole new patio in Sedgley then you will probably not immediately be too worried about patio cleaning, though you'll need to be doing this fairly regularly so as to keep your new patio in the best possible condition.

Patio Re-Grouting Sedgley

Patio Grouting Sedgley: With old, pre-existing patios one of the main issues is with cracked and crumbling grouting or joints. When this happens your patio will look awful and have grass and weeds sprouting up in between the slabs. You can use weedkiller to relieve this problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a very good non-chemical solution to eliminate weeds. Re-doing the grouting is not simple and the hardest thing is to remove the existing grout which is most likely to be a cement and sand mix. If your slabs are loose and moving repairing the joints is pointless as it will not solve the issue, and you need to to have the whole area re-done. If your slabs are relatively secure you can press on and hook out the old mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire area a thorough clean-up once you're done and re-grout the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry process. (Tags: Patio Grouting Sedgley, Patio Re-Grouting Sedgley)
