Concrete Rust Spots

Question?

We purchased aluminum patio furniture and unfortunately it isn't of the highest quality. Some of the paint chipped off, and the rain has rusted those spots and consequently, we have rust spots on the concrete patio. Is there any remedy? Thanks.

Answer!

Jean... not a pretty sight!

The first step is to remove the rust using a chemical rust remover that contains phosphoric acid. Next, coat the damaged area with a small amount of metal primer using an artist's brush. Once dry, finish the primed areas with touch up paint supplied by the manufacturer. If you don't know who the manufacturer is, contact the outlet where you made the purchase. Chances are that they can put you in touch with the manufacturer.

Good luck!
