Painting & Limewashing for Brick Homes in the Greater Milwaukee Area

Brick exterior homes are common in our service area of the greater Milwaukee area. Most customers hire us to help with painting of trim, soffits, shutters, and doors for brick exterior homes. However, in the last 10 years it has become more popular and common to fully pain the exterior of brick homes in the area.

There are several benefits to painting the face of brick on the exterior of your home:

  • Curb appeal: Painted brick will give the exterior of the home a drastic change in how the home looks from the curb. In many cases a freshly painted exterior will raise the sale price of the home and attract more potential buyers.
  • Added protection: Paint acts as an added barrier of protection from moisture, wind, and debris falling near the home. Paint helps seal hairline cracks and close up porous areas of brick.
  • Easier to clean: When brick surfaces get dirty over time, they can be difficult to get clean due to the porous nature of the brick. Painted brick is smooth and easy to clean with occasional power washing.

Things to consider when painting brick:

    • Removing paint from brick is difficult: Once you paint the brick on your home it is a mostly permeant change to the exterior of the home. It will be difficult to completely remove once applied.
    • Over time the paint may chip or need touch ups: The initial paint job should last many years, however eventually new paint will need to be applied.
    • More frequent cleaning required: Dirt will be more visible and apparent on painted surfaces than non-painted brick. You may need to wash the exterior of the home more often after painting the brick

Professional Painting Services for Trim, Doors, Soffits of Brick Homes

While painting brick is becoming more common in the Milwaukee area, most owners of brick homes hire us to help with painting and maintenance of secondary surfaces on the home.

Pictured to the right is a typical suburban Milwaukee brick home. Projects for homes like the one pictured here can be dangerous to attempt on your own due to the steep angle of the roof line and the height of the peak of the roof.

Our team is trained on specialized equipment like ladders, boom lifts, and scaffolding. Some homes will require lifts to reach all the areas that need to be painted. A project estimator will evaluate the equipment needs during the initial estimate appointment.
