Professional Painting / Lime wash / Whitewashing for Brick Surfaces in Knoxville, TN
Painting brick is a popular way to dramatically transform the curbside look and feel of a brick home. Brick painting projects can be difficult because of the porous nature of the material, brick will soak up paint which means more paint will be needed when compared to other common exterior surfaces.
Painting your brick is a permanent change to the home. Before painting the brick surfaces of your home, carefully consider the pros and cons of what the results of the project will bring. It will be extremely difficult to fully remove paint from brick once it has been applied.
Painting brick also will introduce the need for occasional washing and cleaning of the exterior. Painted brick will show dirt and grime more easily than the natural face of brick.

Prepping Brick for Painting
Brick surfaces need to be thoroughly cleaned and fully dry before painting begins. Damaged areas of brick should also be repaired and replaced rather than painted over. We start most brick painting projects with a thorough power washing, followed by patching and repairs to any areas that look like they could be a problem.
Painting brick exteriors is not recommended as a DIY project for these reasons. If you are interested in painting the exterior of your brick home and live in the greater Knoxville, TN service area. Contact us to set up a free estimate appointment.

Brick painting is the process of applying paint over the face of the brick exterior. It gives a solid color look and works to dramatically change the curbside look and and feel of the home. Painted brick exteriors will need to be cleaned every few years as the painted surfaces tend to show dirt more than unpainted brick.
Whitewashing is a specialized technique that uses a 50/50 solution of water and latex paint, it leaves a semi-opaque finish that preserves more of the look of the a brick exterior than a full latex paint would. Whitewashing preserves much of the natural variations in the brick. This technique is commonly used on both interior and exterior brick surfaces.
Limewashing is a different process than whitewashing, the process uses powdered limestone that has been treated to transform it into a durable coating that can be applied to brick. The end result is similar to whitewashing, with a soft white appearance.
