Paint Remover

Q. I have a painted driveway and would like to remove the paint. Is this possible?

A. Yes, it is possible and it can be a messy job. But to avoid the use of solvents and chemicals, abrasive blasting may be the best positive process.

Keep in mind that the existing paint may have penetrated the surface and what ever process you use, some of the paint may remain in the porous surface and any cracks.

Best regards,
