CertaPro Painters® of Charleston are Local Brick Painting Professionals

Bricks are commonly used in South Carolina for their ability to look great and keeping us warm in winter. Over time, bricks can lose their color and vibrance, especially outdoors. UV rays and weather can leach the color from the stone if you don’t step in to help. This is where our painters come in. If your bricks are looking less than stellar, adding a coating of sealant, stain or paint can create a protective barrier for bricks while adding a new color. Our exterior painting services can give you an exterior you are proud of. To update your bricks, contact CertaPro Painters® of Charleston, SC. Our brick services include:

Power Washing

Some bricks need revitalized with a power washing. Sometimes this is all the bricks need. This is always the first step to a brick project.


To completely change the look of bricks, use paint. This offers an opaque look in any color. There have been very successfully painted bricks in white, black, neutrals and other colors.


Staining allows you to enhance the current color of your brick while allowing some of the natural variation in color to show through.


Adding a sealant to the existing bricks will simply put a coating over the current colors of brick.


Interior fireplaces can benefit from the addition of paint, stain or seal. The projects need special attention to remove soot and use a paint that is made to withstand the temperatures of a fire.

Painting Brick

Painting bricks allows you to protect the surface of the stones. Also, because more colors are available, you’ll have a wider selection to choose from. Once bricks are painted, they will likely need redone every five years or so. The bricks can hold onto moisture so it’s imperative to allow the stones plenty of time to dry after cleaning and prior to applying paint. Otherwise, painting will only trap the moisture inside. This could cause the paint to peel off prematurely. Using paints made for porous bricks will help alleviate this problem.

Staining Brick

Stain is a good option to maintain and protect bricks while allowing the natural porous nature to continue. To determine if your bricks can be stained, throw water on the bricks. If it runs off without absorbing, it’s likely already sealed. This means you’ll have to remove the sealant with thinner or brick sealer stripper before proceeding. Always test a small patch first to make sure the bricks won’t be ruined.

Worked with CertaPro Painters of Charleston to repaint our entire home prior to selling it. The project schedule was seamlessly managed from start to finish and completed ahead of schedule. Awesome work! Also, had CertaPro paint some of the exterior of our new home and again, great service and flawless work! Highly recommend.
