Old Painted Concrete Cleaning

Hello all,

I’m on a job now and I cleaned this back patio. It looks to me like the patio was once painted black or had some kind of dark primer and later painted tan.

It’s my current understanding that once concrete is painted, the only way to make it look great again is by repainting.

Any other thoughts?

Paint it with a proper porch enamel. It’ll look fantastic…Brush and roll…I’m a 22 year professional painter.

Concrete grinding is another option, it can expose underlying aggregate and some people like the look.

Serious question: how long does it last once cars with hot tires started parking on it?

Repaint is the easiest/ cheapest thing to make it look nice

Thank you all for your help!
