Sometimes, usually after the long winter months, our patios and driveways are not looking quite their best. Usually, the first thing that comes to mind is that it needs replacing and we all know how expensive getting any type of building work can be. But sometimes, not always of course, remedial or repair can return the surface to a very usable condition for many more years. With modern cleaning techniques, experience and equipment many driveways and patios can get a new lease of life. Issues with general dirt, algae and moss, as well as drainage, damaged kerbing, pointing and grouting can usually be rectified without without the nuclear option of removal and replacement.
