Patio Grouting Twyford

Patio Grouting Twyford: Cracked and crumbling joints or grouting is one of the chief issues with existing patios. Whenever you're facing this scenario, you'll more than likely have grass and weeds sprouting up between the slabs and the whole area will look a mess. You can overcome this problem by the use of a good weedkiller or by pouring boiling water on the weeds which is a very good, but largely unknown, non-chemical way to eliminate weeds in cases like this. It can be a tricky job to restore the grout, and the hardest task of them all is the removal of the old, crumbling sand and cement grouting. Having the whole patio re-done is the only real solution if the patio slabs are loose and moving, because restoring the grout joints is not going to solve the problem. If you verify that the slabs of your patio area are satisfactorily secure and stable, the next step will be to scrape out the damaged cement mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or even better an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the whole patio a good cleanup when you are done and re-grout the slabs with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these sorts of grout are applied using a dry brush-in approach, while others use the wet slurry technique. Most professional Twyford patio layers will tackle patio repointing, so try contacting one near you for an estimate.

A resin bound surface comprises a mixture of resin and coloured aggregate stones which is mixed on-site, cold.
