Issue with concrete

Can anyone please help. Had my patio extended about a year ago, painted some months ago but noticed a bit of dusting / sanding. All seemed OK but this year the paint is peeling off and we are back to sanding / dusting. When you brush, you can sweep up sand into a dustpan. Is there anything I can buy that will seal the concrete?

Hi Gjeh38

It seems that when patio was pointed the mix was to week, so you would need it re-pointing. You can buy a sealer from most builders merchants and remember to read instructions, also use gloves and glasses.

Oil based concrete sealer... 2 coats of. It’s the same stuff they use on pattern imprinted concrete drives NOTE jet wash well before hand and remove all loose bits etc and only apply once fully dry and no sign of rain for 24 hrs !!!
