Coating removed from concrete with scarifierWith the new year comes a new direction and new tools for our client, a contracting team who’ve been pouring concrete for many years. Noticing many flaking and peeling decorative or painted concrete driveways, they recognised a new direction for their business: removing and resurfacing them.

To make the most of their new business opportunity, they needed a fast solution that would leave a heavy, consistent key, ready for them to quickly resurface over one driveway after another. Each driveway had paint or coating 5mm thick or more, so the removal process needed to be one that would save them time and money.
