Driveway and Patio Cleaning Ware: If you're building a complete new patio in Ware then you will likely not be immediately thinking about patio cleaning, although you'll need to do this fairly regularly in order to keep your new patio looking in tip top condition. If you happen to be extending or adding onto a pre-existing patio then it might be a good idea to have those old patio slabs cleaned up so that they match as closely as possible to the new patio slabs that are being laid. Typically patio cleaning is achieved by chemical cleaning or and local Ware patio cleaning companies will likely provide both services.

Patio Grouting Ware: With old, pre-existing patios one of the chief issues is with cracked and crumbling joints or grouting. When this happens your patio will look very messy and no doubt have weeds and grass poking up in between the slabs. You can constantly use weedkiller to alleviate this annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an effective technique to eradicate weeds without using chemicals. Repairing the grout isn't easy and the hardest job is to remove the existing grout which will probably be a cement and sand mix. If your paving slabs are loose and unstable it is pointless replacing the joints because it will not solve the problem, and you really need to have the entire thing re-slabbed. If your slabs are stable and firm you can rake out the old mortar by utilizing a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire patio a really good cleanup once you're finished and re-joint the slabs using a polymeric or resin grout. Some use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry method. Most specialist patio layers in Ware will help you with patio repointing, so get in touch with one near you to get an estimate.
