concrete resurfacing

We removed outdoor carpeting from the steps and now are trying to deal with the left over adhesive. We tried power washing it but it doesn't all come off. Is there some type of do it yourself concrete resurfacing material that we could apply over the step to cover the adhesive and have a fresh decorative appearance?

you definately do not want to put any sort of concrete overlay on over the goo. It would simply break up and look worse that you can ever expect.

remove the goo.


hang on for some of the other folks. I am not familiar with the chemicals needed to remove the goo. I just didn't want you to make a bad mistake if nobody else jumped in here.

The "goo" is not really sticky, it is dried up and hard and much of it was removed with the powerwashing, just not all of it.

but it is not a dependable surface to adhere to. As it degrades as breaks away, so will anything you put on top of it.
