Let CertaPro Painters® of Columbus, OH Help you with Brick Care
Bricks are commonly used in Ohio 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 Columbus, OH. Our brick services include:
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 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.
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.

This white brick looks great with the natural landscape. Our team captured the brick house after the painting project was complete.
Exterior Brick Painting
This siding and brick home was originally white aluminum with white trim and orange 50’s era brick. We painted the brick and siding the gray body color, painted trim and railing white, painted and hung custom built shutters, and painted the front door black.
With a little TLC and a new color scheme, we were able to restore this older house into something fresh and inviting.The white trim really sets off the windows as well as the entryway to the home.
Brick Apartment Complex
This apartment complex exterior got a new paint job to a bright, modern blue. We love how it turned out.
Overall, an excellent job! The painters were very thorough, courteous and professional. I am very happy with their work.
