Default Outside tile work

I have a 4ft x 20ft smooth concrete sidewalk with a 4ft overhang roof over it with porch and floor paint on it. What is the best way to prep this sidewalk before I install my frost free tiles. I already know how to tile but it's the prep work of the painted concrete I am not sure about. I know the very best way to take care of this is to grind all the paint off but can you just scuff up the paint and do my thing or???

Hello Daryl:
I would want to get rid of as much paint as possible; whether by grinding, sand blasting or chemical removal. The paint will interfere with the bond of the new work for sure.
