Remove Paint from Concrete

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Time to help Ellen in California with a spray paint question. What happened?

    ELLEN: I had my house painted and the painter sprayed the place and there’s an overspray on the concrete in two places and I don’t know how to get rid of it. It looks horrible.

    TOM: Ugh. Well, why don’t you make them get rid of it if they oversprayed it?

    ELLEN: They wouldn’t come back. (Leslie chuckles)

    TOM: They wouldn’t come back. You scared them off, huh?

    ELLEN: Apparently.

    TOM: Alright, well look. You can use a paint stripper on that concrete or you could use a pressure washer if it’s just on the surface. If you used a pressure washer, though, it’s got to be done very carefully because if you use too much pressure what’ll happen is you’ll sort of wear away the surface and be looking at the aggregate. But a paint stripper will work to take off that surface.

    ELLEN: Alright, thank you very much.

    TOM: Well, you’re very welcome, Ellen. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
