tar drippings on patio


Is this a landscaping problem or a roofing problem? When the roofers tarred the porch drippings of tar came through the cracks in the decking. How do I get tar off concete? Little black dabs of tar aren't too attractive on the patio.

Try using a citrus based cleaner.

Do not let it dry it will stain. Let it sit on the stain for a few minutes and then slowly work the asphalt off the surface. You may need a couple of applications to get it all off.

Then rinse with clear water.

In the roofing biz, we use this all the time from cleaning tools to cleaning my hot clothes.

Great suggestion!

I asked after the tar had dried.

I will know for future drips (if I ever build again).

I can spread the word to other home builders in the neighborhood. It's a brand new subdivision. Not one completed home yet.
