Quick and easy patio repairs

The winter frost can play havoc with the mortar between your patio slabs. Rather than waiting for the whole thing to need repointing it’s a simple task to remove and refill between the slabs using this simple, illustrated, step by step technique. It will save you money and a bigger job later.
This is a simple and quick job if done annually before things get too bad, but If you don’t repair broken and loose mortar between patio slabs in good time, further water and frost will penetrate and before you know it you’ll have wobbly slabs that need relaying.
