Removing Concrete

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Alright, now we’re going to head on over to Eric in Washington who needs some help with – it sounds like a concrete project gone wrong?

    ERIC: Yeah, well this happened about 15 years ago; 10, 15 years ago before I moved into the place. And they didn’t cover up the walls or the patio door; so when they poured the slab in the back, they splattered everything. So what I need to know is if there’s any way of taking off dried, splattered concrete off tempered patio door units.
    TOM: At this point, Eric, I would suspect that’s it probably etched its way in. The acid in that wet concrete being on there for 15 years has probably eaten its way into that door pretty well. I doubt you’re going to be able to get it off.
    ERIC: There’s no way of dissolving the concrete to get it off. (Leslie groans)
    LESLIE: (overlapping voices) Fifteen years worth?
    TOM: (overlapping voices) Fifteen years of a hard, chemical-cured concrete? You’re not going to find any miracle material that’s going to get that off.
    LESLIE: If it were 15 minutes (chuckles), we can help.
    TOM: (chuckling) You’d have a shot. Fifteen years, not so much.
    ERIC: OK, well thank you very much.
    TOM: OK, Eric. Sorry we didn’t have a better answer for you. Appreciate you calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
