Patio Grouting Exeter

Patio Grouting Exeter (01392)

Patio Grouting Exeter: With old, pre-existing patios one of the key problems is with crumbling and cracked joints or grouting. Whenever you're confronted with this problem, you will almost certainly have weeds and grass sprouting up between the slabs and the entire paved area will look very messy. To tackle this, you could maybe dowse the weeds with boiling water which is an excellent non-chemical technique to eliminate weeds, or alternatively you could apply an effective weedkiller. It really isn't a simple task to refurbish a patio which has badly deteriorated, and cleaning out the old. crumbling sand and cement grouting is the toughest job of all. If the slabs are rocking and loose it is pointless replacing the joints as it won't solve the problem, and you actually need to get the whole area re-done. Cleaning out the damaged mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder with a diamond tipped blade, is going to be the next step if your slabs are relatively stable and secure. When you've finished, you should give the whole patio a thorough cleanup and complete the re-grouting process with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry method while others use a dry brush-in system. (Tags: Grouting Patios Exeter, Patio Grouting Exeter, Patio Re-Grouting Exeter)
