Wall caps deteriorating
« on: July 16, 2017, 10:00:47 AM »
So guys what are my options to deal with these wall caps by my front steps?  They are flaking apart and it looks real crummy.  Is there some kind of sealer I could apply to stop the problem?  Or if I paint over it, would that help?  I really don't know anything about stone.  Send help!

Easy peasy fix. Sand off remaining paint. Power wash with a cleaner to get all the mildew off. Repaint  with a paint designed for concrete. Follow directions on paint can. It can be done in a weekend.
