As the title suggests I have issues with a badly layed rubberized coating in my patio area / around the pool, several areas have lifted and cracked due to water ingress over the winter and it looks terrible.. I bought the house a couple of years ago and suspect the coating was put down to hide nasty looking tiles.
As far as I can tell the patio is a concrete pad with tiles on top and then this layer of rubberized "goop" on top of that. Its pretty hard stuff but in the areas that have lifted can be peeled & broken off of the tiles below, its a big area ( around 600 sq/ft ) so how would I best go about trying to lift it ?
Im kinda scared of starting something making it look worse then being unable to lift the entire area... I hope the tiles underneath are good enough to cleanup and live with for a couple of years as recovering the whole area with tiles would be a time consuming and expensive undertaking.. I lost my job due to the oilfield downturn so have labour and enthusiasm in bucket loads but not much disposable cash
I'm hoping power washer, and a putty knife / scraper will do the job but before I start has anyone gotten any recommendations ?
