Depending on the condition of your old rock, they can be restored sometimes and brought back almost to new condition. You can do this on your own or you can reach out to us for help in doing this.
Got a rock that looks similar to this below? Is it faded and getting dirty? Overall rock can be cleaned some with a power washer but be careful with higher PSI streams as they can actually act more like a sandblaster and damage the rock. I've also heard of using a water/bleach mixture to help clean the surface.
This style of rock simply used Rust Oleum paint. Use a small artist brush to repaint the areas. The red that we used was "Sunrise Red" and the black is "Gloss Black". I don't recommend using an aerosol product. The rough surface of the stone can be cleaned some if needed with an abrasive brush but be careful not to damage the rock or leave scratch marks all over. If you get paint up on the top flat surface around the graphic and wording, this area can be cleaned up with a palm sander. I recommend a 4" palm sander with 60 grit paper. You can sand this entire top, flat surface to clean it up and make it look new again. Be careful not to sand too much or to hit your painted areas.
Original rock needing restored.
All cleaned up! We used a power washer to get a lot of the debris off the rock. We also had to use an abrasive brush to clean up the surface of the rock and a Dremel to clean up the area in around the wording.
Repainted! Rust Oleum gloss black paint was used to repaint this rock.
All sealed up!
Back with the customer! They were very pleased with the results. We had it for 5 days in our possession.
