Removing Tar and Sealant From Brickwork After New Conservatory


Postby nailedit! » Wed Aug 13, 2014 2:39 pm

Advice please! Have just had conservatory replaced, and the new one has a steeper roof pitch, which has resulted in a tar-like line where the old flashing was, and a line of yellowed old sealant below it.
I've scraped off as much of both as I can, then used a wire brush, but both lines are still very obvious.
Any suggestions as to how I can remove/disguise them please?

Thanks Welsh Brickie.
That's helped a lot with the tar, and am now going to try to get last of it off with white spirit. Didn't do much for the silicone though - just smelt awful!
