The Brick Painting Process

The process for painting brick can vary depending on the type of brick and the project requirements, but most projects follow a process similar to the one below:

Prep & Clean Brick

The first step is to make sure the brick is clean and clear of any dirt or grime. This is usually done with power washing equipment and steel brushes. Cracks and other issues are also repaired as part of the prep process.


A layer of primer is applied to the brick, this step helps make sure that the paint adheres to surfaces properly.


Once the primer layer is dry a top layer of paint is applied to the brick, most projects require a few coats to get an even finish.

The contracted painters were very professional and attentive. Very concerned to make sure I was happy with their work. They offered to come back if needed. I am pleased and will defiantly recommend them to anyone looking for painters.
