Hi, I have laid a number of patios, but never had to re-point an old one.
The patio in question covers the whole garden with soil borders.
The slabs are all 45 x45 and there are 132 slabs in total.
About 20 need to be lifted and relaid, maybe a few more once Ive bashed all the old mortar out.
Some of the mortar is loose and will come out easily and about 50 % of it will need to be cut out or taken out with a hammer and bolster.
My question is, what will this take in time roughly, and is there a standard price per sqm for this type of job.
Also, I have only ever pointed before with sand and cement. Would it be better to use one of these pre- mixed grout type products.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
