Though a smaller patio assignment might be a job that you could undertake on your own if you're conversant with this kind of work, it is more likely to be the case that you'll need to get a skilled Andover patio layer to complete the project for you, particularly for larger patios. It is not simply the installing of your garden patio that you should look at but also the removing and disposal of the waste and the introduction of the new patio materials. It's also wise bear in mind that laying patios is heavy work, particularly if the existing patio was bedded in concrete. A large sized paving slab with a layer of concrete on it can be pretty heavy, so at least ask someone to help you lift these, if you elect to tackle it yourself.

Patio Grouting Andover

Patio Grouting Andover (01264)

Patio Grouting Andover: With old, pre-existing patios one of the chief issues is with crumbling and cracked grouting or joints. If this occurs the patio may look messy and no doubt have weeds and grass growing up between the slabs. You could constantly use weedkiller to alleviate the annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is an effective non-chemical technique to eradicate weeds. It really isn't an easy task to refurbish a patio that has deteriorated badly, and raking out the old. eroded grouting is the most taxing job of all. At the end of the day it is pointless repairing the joints if the slabs are loose and rocking, because it will not make much difference, and having the whole thing re-done is the only real solution. If you verify that the slabs of your patio area are satisfactorily secure, the next step will be to scrape out the old mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade. When you're done, you should give the whole area a thorough clean-up and complete the re-grouting using a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these use a dry brush-in technique and others are applied using the wet slurry method. (Tags: Grouting Patios Andover, Patio Grouting Andover, Patio Re-Grouting Andover)
