I'm remodeling our family room. The house was built in the mid 60's.
in the early 70's the previous owner added a family room onto
the house. The
house is a brick ranch and the contractor built 3 walls
and roofed it and they
left the other wall brick. The contractor glued
a wooden valance to the brick,
and now I want to removed the valance
because it had to be replaced due to age.
I'm having a hard time
removing the glue. It's black and it almost looks like
dried tar. Any
ideas on how to remove the glue without doing harm to the bricks?
yea...cover them with drywall it will not harm the bricks at all....
but seriously this stuff does not come off bricks. Its not like tar it
IS tar. Even sand blasting does not work for this because the tar is
still soft enough to take the brunt of the sand and all you get are
pockets of holes that are really inconsistant which looks horriabe. And
no you cant use a chemical remover because as it loosens the tar the
liquid seaps into the joints and stains them FOREVER..
