Have some very old paint on my concrete foundation that I would
like to remove. Not sure if oil or latex.
Peel A way was recommended.
I also see that there are other, possibly similar, products such as:
and, Nitromors Superstrip
Anyone have any thoughts on these three ?
Very concerned about leaving a stain behind on the concrete after using from
the product itself.
Which would be least likely to ?
Peel Away might do the trick if you get the caustic based material. You
do not want to dissolve the paint and carry it further into the concrete.
The product might lighten the concrete since it is caustic. Try it out in
an inconspicuous place first.
As already suggested, the best idea is a pressure washer.
In my experience, paint doesn't come off concrete. We tried two kinds
of strippers - water and solvent - with almost no effect.
Some of the paint was old spills which had been wiped in. Only paint
that loosened was a few drips that had dried before sinking in.
Pressure washed same concrete in prep for sealing, and the paint didn't
budge then, either. On another area, a neighbor spilled wood stain and
left dark brown blotches. I used acryllic craft paint to "faux paint"
and disguise it, which worked very well.
