Painting brick can not only update the look of your home but can also provide a layer of protection to the outside of your home. Painted brick can be easier to clean than natural brick, which could make it easier to keep your home looking fresh all year long.
EXTERIOR BRICK PAINTING
When it comes to painting exterior brick surfaces, there are a few things you want to watch out for. First off, you want to make sure you don’t paint over any molded, deteriorating, or chipped brick; this may initially cover up any damaged brick but can cause more damage in the long run. You also need to make sure you use the correct paint. Brick is a porous material, so you want to make sure you use the right primer and paint to ensure lasting results. If you’re not sure which type of paint to use, consult a professional.
While it may seem like an easy DIY project, it’s important to note that painting brick requires the right prep work and needs to be done properly to ensure a finish that looks great and will last. The best way to ensure you get the look you want is to hire professional painters.

INTERIOR BRICK PAINTING
Exposed brick walls and fireplaces can add a cool look to your home’s interior, but it’s not a look that everyone loves. If you’re not in love with the particular color of your brickwork, it’s a problem that can easily be solved with a fresh coat of paint! Whether it’s a wall, fireplace, or another element inside your home, painting brick can instantly give your space a more modern look.
As with painting exterior brick, it’s important to make sure you have the right tools to get the job done—check for any damaged spots and make sure you use the right type of primer and paint. If you use the wrong type of paint, the original brick color might start to bleed through, or it could start to chip. Painting brick can be tricky, especially if it needs some repair work. If you spot any areas that may need repair, it’s best to hire professional painters to do the work for you.
