What You Should Know Before Deciding to Have Your Brick Painted

1.) The most important part of information to note is that once you have your brick painted, there is no easy way to restore the original color of your brick. While painted brick can be repainted in a new color, it can not return to its natural color after this type of service. This is why we recommend that you are sure of your brick painting decision prior to scheduling this type of service.

2.) Once you have your brick home painted, it will require power washing and the occasional exterior painting service to keep your home looking its best.

3.) It is very important to only work with local professionals when it comes to brick painting services. There are many ways that damage can occur to the exterior of your home if this service isn’t completed properly.

Common Questions about Brick Painting

Is it possible to paint bricks?

  • Yes, it is possible to paint bricks. Brick painting is a popular method to change the appearance of brick surfaces and give them a new look.
  • What type of paint should I use for painting bricks?

  • For painting bricks, it is recommended to use a paint specifically formulated for masonry surfaces. Look for an acrylic latex or elastomeric paint designed for exterior use. These types of paints are durable, flexible, and provide good adhesion to brick surfaces.
  • Do I need to prepare the brick surface before painting?

  • Yes, proper preparation of the brick surface is important for a successful paint job. Start by cleaning the bricks thoroughly to remove any dirt, grime, or loose particles. You may need to use a wire brush, power washer, or a combination of both to achieve a clean surface. Repair any cracks or damaged areas, and allow the bricks to dry completely before applying paint.
  • Can I paint both interior and exterior bricks?

  • Yes, you can paint both interior and exterior bricks. However, there are some differences to consider. Exterior brick surfaces are exposed to weather conditions, so it’s important to use a paint that can withstand the elements. Interior brick surfaces may not require as much durability, but you should still choose a paint that is appropriate for the specific location and use.
  • How do I ensure a long-lasting paint finish on bricks?

    • Choose a high-quality paint specifically formulated for masonry surfaces.
    • Prepare the brick surface properly by cleaning and repairing any damage.
    • Apply a suitable primer before painting to improve adhesion and durability.
    • Use a paint roller or brush to apply multiple thin coats of paint, allowing sufficient drying time between each coat.
    • Consider applying a clear coat or sealer over the painted surface to provide extra protection and longevity.

    Remember, proper maintenance and regular cleaning will also help preserve the paint finish on bricks over time.
