I bought my house 1 year ago and the front concrete porch was painted by the previous owner. It's now chipping away and my plan is to remove the paint and then seal the concrete after all the paint is removed. Does anyone have some suggestions on what/how to use to remove the paint and what type of concrete sealer to use?

Pressure washer set at a low pressure, then adjust your pressure up to a higher setting, while testing to get to a pressure that is removing the paint, but not the actual concrete.

From what I can see of the exposed concrete it was stained, moldy, or other problem that should of been taken care of before painting.

But they were in a hurry to cover it up to sell out.

Rent a pressure washer , and trial and error until you get it clean.

Then any quality sealer should suffice.
