Patio Grouting Rainham

Patio Grouting Rainham (01708)

Patio Grouting Rainham: Cracked or eroding grouting or joints is one of the main problems with old patios. If this type of thing is occurring with your patio, you must do something, because before you realize it your patio is going to start to look messy with grass and weeds growing up through the joints. You can overcome this problem by the use of a decent weedkiller or alternatively by dowsing the weeds with boiling water which is an outstanding, but largely unrecognised, non-chemical technique to kill weeds in cases like this. It is likely to be a big job to replace the grout, and the toughest task of all is the removing of the old, eroded grouting. When all is said and done there is little point replacing the joints if your paving slabs are loose and unstable, because it won't make much difference, and getting the whole patio re-done is the only real answer. If the slabs are pretty secure you can hook out the old mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or even better an angle grinder fitted with a diamond tipped blade. Give the entire area a thorough clean-up when you're finished and re-grout the slabs with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these are applied using the wet slurry method while others use a dry brush-in technique.

Decking vs Patio - Which is Best?

Decking or Patio Rainham?

Pretty much any garden or even a tiny courtyard in Rainham can be transformed by installing a patio or some decking. But, how do you decide which is the best option?

If the initial outlay is the primary concern, then decking gets the vote. Measure for measure, decking is cheaper and quicker to install than a similar sized patio. In the long run maintenance costs can be more expensive for a timber decking area, but this can be avoided by using composite, rot-proof materials. As is the case with any outdoor space in the garden, patio or deck, there'll always be areas of maintenance that are needed every year.

If you want it to be a hard wearing and durable area, that's where patios come out ahead. Even when a patio slab breaks it does not generally affect its everyday use, and it can be easily exchanged by an expert. Conversely, a broken deck board or plank, needs to be changed immediately, because it will create an unsafe trip area on even a low-level deck. Both decking and patios are fantastic options that will provide an outside space for the whole family to enjoy and take pleasure in.
