Peeling Paint on Patio


D

I have a small concrete patio area ( 3Mx2M) which I painted with a
'Garage Floor Paint' a couple of years ago. Not a Good Idea !
Moisture has caused patches of the paint to flake off leving unsightly
gaps.

Problem One : What is the best way to remove the rest of the paint ?

Problem Two : My preferred option is to tile this small patio - what
sort of tiles should I be looking for and is it a difficult job (
Cutting problems etc )?

I live in Southwest Scotland so frost in winter could be a factor.

Any ideas much appreciated.

What possibility shall we propose for peeling purple paint on Peters
patio?

Problem One : What is the best way to remove the rest of the paint ?
Best way: vortex whatnot as used to clean paint off brickwork
Quick cheaper but not as efective way: pressure washing
Cheap way that only makes it good enough to repaint: wire brush

Problem Two : My preferred option is to tile this small patio - what
sort of tiles should I be looking for
floor tiles
and is it a difficult job (
Cutting problems etc )?
Important not to leave any gaps under the tiles, as you dont want them
to fill with water and freeze.

1) Use a pressure washer. Paint should lift off easily!

2) Have a look for quarry tiles. I've used these on door steps and landings
exposed to frost without any problems. Make certain which ever ones you go
for are frost resistant. I also made certain that they were well bedded in.
There are numerous other types available which will also do the job. Bear in
mind though that tiles can be slippery if wet / leaves lie on them (not to
mention frost)!

good luck

David
