porch issues

What is the best and cheapest solution for a porch with that plastic carpet stuff glued on it once the carpet gets torn and it won't stretch back in place to be glued again. We would actually like to get rid of the carpet look on our front porch. What is the easiest way to remove it and how do we repair the cement with old glue all over it after the carpet is gone?:confused:

There are adhesive removers, scrapers and cement grinders that will get rid of the left over glue.

Afterward, I would add step safety paint to the surface if you don't like the color of the concrete. This paint has grit in it to make it rough.

Thanks Debbie! I'll look for those things.
