HOW TO PAINT EXTERIOR BRICK
Painting exterior brick can seem difficult but it is fairly simple if you know the right techniques. Here are some handy tips to get you on your way.
- Clean the area– One of the most important things to do before painting brick is to thoroughly clean the area. If dirt or grime is left on the brick surface, this will affect the way that the paint adheres to the surface and can cause the paint to start to peel or chip faster. We always suggest pressure washing brick surfaces and letting them dry completely before painting. If you don’t have a pressure washer, usually some soapy water and some scrubbing will do the trick. Since brick is a porous material, let the area dry out for a few days before you start to paint.
- Paint – When choosing your paint, make sure you choose a good quality exterior paint. This will ensure that the paint not only adheres properly but will resist fading and peeling over the years. Try not to paint any exterior surfaces if the temperature drops below 10°C/50°F or is above 30°C/86°F. Painting when the weather is too hot can cause blistering of the paint. Certain higher-end paints may increase the temperature range but it is always best to check with the manufacturer when deviating from this range.
- Application– The easiest way to apply paint to a brick surface is to use a sprayer. If you don’t have access to a sprayer, you can always use brushes and rollers to apply the paint. We suggest using a roller with a thicker nap as this will help you spread the paint easier and get into all the holes.
- Know when to hire a professional – Sometimes painting brick can be a bit tricky especially if it involves painting high or difficult to reach areas. When in doubt, hire a professional. It’ll save you time and ensure that your paint job looks flawless.
