Is It Possible To Paint Brick

Painting brick is an extremely doable project when you keep in mind these pointers. You need to plan carefully and do your research first, according to Sherwin-Williams

  • avoid painting new and porous brick, wait at least 1 year so the surface will have time to weather and the alkali and efflorescence can leach out of the brick. 

  • it is not recommended to paint the inside of a masonry fireplace because it could become a fire hazard.

  • Damaged Brick or previously painted brick needs some prep work before painting it. Removal of old paint is recommended and any damaged masonry needs to be repointed with fresh mortar.
