Providing the preparation of the area has been done correctly, this phase of the project should be relatively trouble-free and your dream patio will rapidly start to take shape and shortly you will have a beautiful outdoor space where you can sit and relax

Materials Used for Paving: There are an array of different materials from which a garden patio can be made and the most common that you will find are granite, blocks, slabs, asphalt, composite tiles, sandstone, cobbles, bricks, limestone, setts, concrete, slate and gravel.

Patio Grouting St Helens

Patio Grouting St Helens (01744)

Patio Grouting St Helens: Grout and joints which are cracked or crumbling is the major problem that you'll come across with older, pre-existing patios. When this happens the patio area may look awful and probably have weeds and grass poking up between the slabs. To deal with this, you could perhaps saturate the weeds with boiling water which is an excellent non-chemical technique to get rid of weeds, or alternatively you could use an effective weedkiller. Repairing the grout is not simple and the hardest job is to get rid of the old grout which is most likely to be a sand and cement mix. Having the entire area re-done is the only real solution if your patio slabs are rocking and loose, seeing as correcting the grouted joints is not going to solve the problem. Cleaning out the damaged mortar using a hammer and bolster, a patio knife or better still a diamond tipped blade in an angle grinder, will be the next step if your slabs are pretty firm and stable. When you're done, you must give the entire area a thorough clean-up and undertake the re-grouting using a polymeric or resin grout. Some are applied using the wet slurry method while others use a dry brush-in technique. Most local patio layers in St Helens will tackle patio repointing, so try contacting one near you for an estimate.
