Hope someone can help.
Recently have our garage reroofed and althought the roofers did a good job
they made a real mess inside the garage. The problem is that the concrete
step from the garage into the kitchen has been covered in tar. I have tried
to remove it using a scraper for the thick runs and petrol to remove what is
left. Unfortunately this has left a black mess all over the step. What can I
do now? I am quite happy painting the step (having been meaning to do that
for some time) but am I right in thinking the paint won't adhere where the
tar has been? Can I pretreat it or am I stuck with an unsightly step?
As a first attempt I'd go back to the roofers and explain what they had done
and ask if they could make good the tar spillage. If you haven't paid them
already then hold back some money... say 10% until they make good the mess
they've made. As 'professional' roofers they may know a few tricks of the
trade to easily remove the tar.
