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.) If your home is Historic, there may be a different set of rules in regards to the exterior changes that can be made. However, this all depends on the town rules and regulations in your neighborhood.

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.

Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about a faulty painting service when you work with CertaPro Painters®️ of San Antonio West. We have the skill and expertise you need for a flawless brick painting service.

Bricks are a stylish and commonly used in our area for their ability to withstand weather. They stand up to moisture really well while looking great and keeping us warm in winter. With time, bricks can loose their color and vibrance, especially outdoors. The sun’s UV rays and heat 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 services can give you an exterior you are proud of. To update your bricks, contact CertaPro Painters® of Ottawa. 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.

How to Maintain Painted Brick Homes

Once you have decided to have your brick home painted, there are a few routine maintenance jobs to keep in mind. While natural brick can be extremely low-maintenance, after you have yours painted there will be some additional upkeep needed. If your paint has started to chip, fade or peel, the exterior of your home will need to be touched up or repainted. To keep the exterior of your home clean, you may now need to invest in the occasional pressure washing service as well.
