Just moved in to our new house and have inherited a pretty old looking patip path etc.
I have jet washed it, the results are a very dull path, pointing missing in many places and a lot of very badly cement stained slabs from the previous pointing.
What I need to know is:
Is there a product to clean up the cement stains?
Is there a product that would make the slabs look better, i.e. a little newer, i.e acid or something I paint on whether it paint or a sealer that leaves the slabs wet.
Have got to sort this out as the slabs look terrible and as there over 300 of them so don't want to get new.
Thanking you in advance for any help.
Was in my local Travis Perkins hire yard the other day and a guy was cleaning of hard concrete from a cement mixer with a solution a lot sronger than brick acid ,it really did soften up the concrete on the outer and inner drum of the mixer and anyone in the trade will know that is no mean feat. I dont remember the name but I know Belle make it ,the same people who make the mixers.It was in a 500ml spray bottle and I believe cost about a tenner,could try that on your stained slabs.
Hope this helps
