Preparing the Area: This step of the patio project should include the stripping and disposal of surface debris and any existing paving waste, removal of topsoil to reach the more stable sub-soil, spreading of a hardcore material or sub-base and the resulting tamping and levelling of this material, covering with a bedding layer for example sharp sand.

High-Pressure Patio Cleaning Swadlincote

Patio Cleaning Swadlincote: If you are building a complete new patio in Swadlincote then you will likely not immediately be concerned with patio cleaning, although you'll need to be doing this on a fairly regular basis so as to keep your new patio looking in tip top condition. If you're adding to or extending an existing patio area then you might want to get those old patio slabs cleaned up so that they match the newly laid slabs as closely as possible. Most of the time the cleaning of patios is done by power washing or chemical cleaning and most local Swadlincote patio cleaning companies will probably provide both of these services. Professional cleaners use extremely high pressure equipment that is a lot better than the type of jet washer that some people have in their garden shed or garage.

Patio Grouting Swadlincote: With old patios one of the main issues is with cracked joints or grouting. When this happens your patio area may look untidy and likely have weeds and grass growing up between the slabs. You could use weedkiller to ease the problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a very good technique to eliminate weeds without using chemicals. Replacing the grout can be a tricky job and the hardest thing is to remove the old grout which is probably going to be a sand and cement mortar. If your slabs are loose and rocking re-doing the joints is pointless as it won't make much difference, and you actually need to get the entire patio re-done. If your slabs are pretty firm and stable you can go ahead and rake out the damaged mortar by utilizing a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole area a thorough clean-up when you are done and re-joint the slabs using a resin or polymeric grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry approach. (Tags: Patio Grouting Swadlincote, Patio Re-Grouting Swadlincote)
