hi, on our patio outside we have hexagonal six sided red concrete slabs
laid down. since we have been in this house about ten years the mortar
between the joints of the slabs seems to have shrunk and now bits of plant
and weed are growing in the cracks. i have tried rubbing in a bit of cement
mix obtainable from the local B&Q hardware store.... but how to do this
without it smearing all over the edges of the slabs and everything looking
like a dogs dinner i have yet to (hopefully) be advised on.
problem No 2 with these slabs and the 'real headache' is the fact that on
the edge of the patio leading towards the rest of the garden the slabs are
cut in half and have an 'over- hang' of about an inch or so. many of these
slabs have come 'unstuck' and the overhang is just enough to tilt the slabs,
if anyone steps on the edge. i have tried several times to stick them down
with the readymix cement from B&Q, but they are just not staying stuck down.
any advice i would be grateful for....thanks
yours john west
My mum has some glue from the builders merchant for sticking bricks together.
its a two part stuff, you spead it on thinly, and it works just fine. Ifs for
people who want to build the lazy way. Works great for jobs like this, assuming
stuff you are sticking to is solid.
