Concrete patio paint

I have a concrete patio that was painted by formr owner.
The paint is coming up and looks bad.
The concrete is a brom finish/texture and the patio is covered.
What should I do?
Power wash dry repaint?
wire brush the whole ting then paint?
Can I use the epoxy garage floor stuff?

Concrete patio paint

remove as much of the existing coating as you can by scraping and pressure washing. allow the concrete to dry for at least 24 hours and apply 2 coats of solvent stain. do not use epoxy coatings in direct sunlight or it will chalk and amber rapidly.

Pressure washer to remove the paint. Then stain the concrete if desired.
