Do You Know How To Repair Your Damaged Paving?

The next area to carry out preventative maintenance work on is repairing your paving.

Paving is susceptible to degradation through plant attack, natural weathering, freeze-thaw attack and washout. A typical repair method to re-bed the paving is to use Castle Readybag MORTAR as follows:

  • Prepare the area to the required depth.
  • Remove any existing MORTAR material which will interfere with the surface level.
  • Place the MORTAR mix to the required depth and rake level.
  • Sprinkle with water using a fine hose until the MORTAR mix reaches the correct consistency. Avoid adding too much water as this will weaken the MORTAR mix and affect the setting time and durability.
  • Rake level again.
  • Place the paving slabs, ensuring they are level and flat.
