Patio Grouting Colne

Patio Re-Grouting Colne (01282)

Patio Grouting Colne: Crumbling joints or grouting is one of the main problems with existing patios. If this sort of thing is occurring with your patio, you will have to act, because in no time your patio will begin to look a mess with grass and weeds poking up between the joints. You could continually use weedkiller to ease this annoying problem or pour boiling water on the weeds which is a superb non-chemical technique to get rid of weeds. It is often a big job to replace the grout, and the hardest task of all is the removal of the old, eroding grout. On the whole re-doing the joints is pointless if your paving slabs are loose and moving, as it won't solve the problem, and having the whole patio re-done is the only possible alternative. Cleaning out the old mortar with a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder, will be the next stage if your patio slabs are stable and firm. When you are done, you must give the whole patio a thorough clean-up and complete the re-grouting procedure using a resin or polymeric grout. Some use a dry brush-in system and others are applied using the wet slurry method.
