‘Stain on My Concrete House is Peeling — What Now?’

Here’s a question from our 4/6/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Kim from Missouri asks, “I have a two-story, historic concrete house built by one man when he was 58 years old in 1910. He hand-poured cement blocks with different designs; used them to build the house, made the first-floor cement and the baseboards.

“The house was in great disrepair when I bought it, and the new stain I bought is peeling and looks terrible — what to do? I thought I would power wash again and try an acid-based paint.

“I cannot hand-scrub every block — each is imprinted differently — lots of dips and dents and surface area.”

We say try TSP and a good quality acrylic latex paint.
