Removing Sealer from Stamped Concrete

I am happy to report that I have successfully removed the sealer from my own driveway that had a whitening condition due to incompatibility of sealers. I had explained that I had stripped I thought all the sealer off  in the past only to reseal again and have the same problem come up.

This process was not only time-consuming but messy and as I said did not work. I happy that we found this solution that in my opinion is both fast and cost-effective as a solution too this problem.

I will follow-up with pictures in the future and a complete explanation of the procedure.

If anyone out there is having the same problem please let us direct you on how to do this since it will save you a lot of aggravation and unnecessary cost.

My thanks goes out to Tim in Colorado for this suggestion. Amazing how well it worked

  2. I removed concrete sealer with a weed burner propane torch. It only requires a very little bit of scrubbing to remove the lifted sealer. These torches can be purchased from harbor freight for about $25.00.
