Patio Grouting Waltham Abbey: Eroding and cracked grouting or joints is one of the main problems with old patios. When you are confronted with this scenario, you'll most likely have weeds and grass establishing themselves between your slabs and the whole patio will look untidy. To deal with this, you could saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a good non-chemical technique to eliminate weeds, or alternatively you could employ a good weedkiller. It is likely to be a big job to restore the grout, and the most trying job of them all is the removing of the old, eroding sand and cement grout. Having the entire patio re-slabbed is the only real solution if the patio slabs are loose and moving, because correcting the grouting joints is not going to address the problem. If the slabs are reasonably firm and stable you can rake out the old mortar by using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder. You will be able to do the re-grouting with a polymeric or resin grout, once the area has been diligently cleaned. Some of these types of grout are employed using the wet slurry technique, while others use the dry brush-in process.

This type of patio has huge appeal largely because flagstones are natural quarried stones cut from bluestone, limestone, slate, sandstone and travertine.
