Brick Painting

THINKING ABOUT PAINTING THE EXTERIOR FACE BRICK ON YOUR HOUSE?

Many of us may choose to purchase our home in part due to its exterior aesthetics, believing that we will have to live with the colour of the brickwork for the length of time we own it. You may be wondering; will my outdoor patio furniture clash with red brick? Would I be limited on the colours I could paint the garage doors due to the colour of our front facing brick? Over the years, our team has identified a big misconception among homeowners – brick cannot be painted and the “brick needs to breathe”.
While the statement that bricks need to breathe and expel moisture is not false, bricks also do the opposite and take in moisture. With today’s modern acrylic paint technology, we are blessed with masonry paint that allows brick to breathe while also preventing water from soaking through.

HOW IS PAINT FOR BRICK SIDING DIFFERENT THAN REGULAR EXTERIOR PAINT?

Before painting exterior brick on a house, our team of professional painters will prepare the surface before any paint or primer is applied. We will start by power washing the exterior brick walls to remove any residue, including dirt and mildew. If minor repairs are needed, we will fix chips and cracks in advance to ensure the longevity of our work. During the estimate process, our team will also take the time to educate you about the job at hand and discuss any upkeep that may be required to protect the surface over time.
Near the end of the job, we will apply two coats of an exterior grade masonry paint. If a painting company does not use this paint, there is a high likelihood that you will experience peeling or chipping paint soon after the job has finished because it has not properly adhered to the surface. At Harbor Painting Co. in Mount Albert, we know our products inside and out and can guarantee every job will be done right the first time.
