Painting the Brick on the Exterior of Your House

angel-exterio_20200726-203500_1 Deep mysterious grays with white accent pops

Over the years, we have had many clients as us about painting the brick on the exterior of their house.  For some people painting brick os an absolute never and they cringe at the idea.  For others, its a surface just waiting for its new color.  Brick provides a timeless look that needs very little maintenance which is what makes it so attractive to have.  It gives a home a solid amount of weight and can look beautiful.  Some would say that brick by itself can become dingy and requires maintenance due to the porous surface allowing for dirt and debris to become trapped and difficult to remove. There are many different viewpoints on painting brick, let's review some of the major points.

Is it Okay to Paint a Brick House?

Yes!  It is for sure OK to paint the brick on your house. When you choose your painting company and you know you want to paint your brick, make sure that you have HOA permission.  Some HOA's will not allow this.  Once you have the permission from the HOA, you will have to make sure that the painting company you work with chooses the right paint.  You will want your paint to be an elastomeric paint, or a stone and masonry paint.  Both of these types of paint will have the ability to adhere to the brick.  In some cases, a primer coat will be needed to cover the brick first so that the paint will stick no matter what. The one thing to note is that when you paint the brick of your house, this is a semi-permanent decision.  Going back to brick would be very costly and potentially not be worth the money.  Before you paint your brick, be sure that this is a decision that you want to make.
