Patio Grouting Southchurch

Patio Re-Grouting Southchurch (01702)

Patio Grouting Southchurch: Grouted joints which are crumbling or cracked is the main problem that you will come across with older, pre-existing patios. If this kind of thing is happening with your patio, you must take action, because before you realize it your patio will start to look a shambles with weeds and grass sprouting up between the joints. To take care of this, you could maybe pour boiling water on the weeds which is an excellent way to kill weeds without using chemicals, or you could apply an effective weedkiller. It is often a challenging job to restore the grout, and the most trying job of all is the removing of the old, eroded sand and cement grouting. Having the entire thing re-done is the only real solution if your paving slabs are loose and unstable, as restoring the grout joints is not going to solve the issue. If you decide that the slabs of your patio area are sufficiently firm and immovable, the next step will be to scrape out the damaged mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. You will be able to carry out the re-grouting with a resin or polymeric grout, once the joints have been extensively cleaned. Some of these kinds of grout are applied using a dry brush-in process, while others use the wet slurry procedure.
