Issues With Polegate Patios: Throughout this website I have discussed some of the issues that can occur with an existing patio, but to review, here are the main issues that are liable to arise with a patio: slabs covered in moss and lichen, dirty patio slabs, loose or unstable patio slabs, patio edgings collapsing, weeds growing in the joints, the staining of patio slabs, cracked or damaged slabs, standing water due to poor drainage, trip hazards due to uneven slabs, patio slabs that have sunk or moved.

Deck vs Patio

Decking or Patio Polegate?

You have identified a spot in your garden in Polegate that's the ideal position for relaxing outside, and you would like to install a patio or deck. But, which would suit your needs better?

For individuals who are on a strict budget and concerned about costs then decking takes the biscuit. Like for like, decking is quicker to construct and cheaper than a patio of a comparable size. Some claim that decking is expensive and hard to maintain, however with today's composite materials this doesn't need to be an issue any longer. As with any outside space in the garden, decking or patio, there will invariably be areas of maintenance that are needed most years.

Slabbed patios are favoured by those needing a more durable surface that can endure heavy use throughout all seasons of the year in Polegate. Such hard surfaces will last a lifetime, and even if a stone cracks or breaks, it will not impact on the overall structure and can be very easily repaired or exchanged. This is not the case for a damaged decking plank, which will result in a weak area in the decking which causes a risk and must be replaced immediately. When everything is taken into consideration, both options will provide you with many years of outdoor enjoyment for the entire family.

Patio Grouting Polegate

Patio Re-Grouting Polegate (01323)

Patio Grouting Polegate: Grouted joints that are cracked or disintegrating is the chief issue you will encounter with older, pre-existing patios. When you are facing this situation, you will in all probability have grass and weeds poking up in between your slabs and the whole patio will look untidy. To take care of this, you could perhaps saturate the weeds with boiling water which is an outstanding non-chemical technique to eliminate weeds, or alternatively you could employ an effective weedkiller. It really isn't an easy task to fix a patio which has badly deteriorated, and cleaning out the old. eroding grout is the most challenging job of all. When push comes to shove there is no point re-doing the joints if your paving slabs are loose and unstable, because it will not have much effect, and getting the entire patio re-slabbed is the only possible option. Removing the old mortar using a patio knife, a hammer and bolster or better still an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade, is going to be the next step if your patio slabs are reasonably secure and stable. When you have finished, give the entire area a really good cleanup and undertake the re-grouting procedure with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these types of grouts are applied using the wet slurry solution, while others use the dry brush-in process. Most professional patio layers in Polegate will happily do patio repointing, so try contacting one near you for a quote.
