Patio Re-Grouting Whetstone (0116)

Patio Grouting Whetstone: Grout and joints that are eroding or cracked is the major problem that you'll come across with older patios. When you are confronted by this predicament, you will most likely have weeds and grass poking up in between the slabs and the whole paved area will look awful. You could continually use weedkiller to relieve the problem or saturate the weeds with boiling water which is a very good way to kill weeds without using chemicals. It really isn't an easy task to refurbish a patio which has badly deteriorated, and cleaning out the old. eroded grouting is the hardest job of all. If your paving slabs are rocking and loose there is little point re-doing the joints as it won't solve the issue, and you actually need to get the whole patio re-done. Removing the damaged mortar by 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 task if your slabs are reasonably firm. When you've finished, you should give the entire patio a really good cleanup and do the re-grouting procedure with a polymeric or resin grout. Some of these types of grout are applied using a dry brush-in approach, while others use the wet slurry technique.
