Patio Grouting Shanklin (01983)

Patio Grouting Shanklin: Grout and joints which are crumbling or cracked is the main problem you will come across with older patios. When this happens the patio will look very messy and likely have weeds and grass sprouting up between the slabs. To deal with this, you could pour boiling water on the weeds which is a good solution to eliminate weeds without using chemicals, or alternatively you could use a good weedkiller. Repairing the grout can be a tricky job and the toughest thing is to remove the existing grout which is probably going to be a cement and sand mortar. By and large it is pointless replacing the joints if the patio slabs are rocking and loose, as it is unlikely to solve the issue, and having the whole thing re-slabbed is the only effective resolution. If you establish that the slabs on your patio are properly stable and firm, the next step is going to be to rake out the damaged cement mortar by using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. Give the whole area a good cleanup when you're finished and re-grout the slabs with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these sorts of grout are applied using the wet slurry technique, while others use the dry brush-in process.
