While some people do prefer the natural brick color and style, many people are moving to painted brick for its more versatile design options and benefits.
You can paint your brick in whatever color scheme you’d like, and many paints come with textured designs. Talk with your contractor about potential options.
Brick fades over time after exposure to wind, sun, and rain. Even a thin layer of paint offers protection from these elements, and some brands are made specifically to better protect the material they’re applied to.
Brick is porous, which allows dirt and debris to stick easily to its surface. With a coat of paint, however, this porous surface is covered, making it much easier to clean.
There are a few things building owners should consider before choosing to paint brick exterior.
Paint is extremely hard to get off brick and requires a costly and time-consuming service to do so. However, you’re not stuck with a look if you don’t like your paint job; adding a new coat is easy.
Although painted brick is actually better able to stand up to moisture, it will cause your paint to chip over time. A regularly scheduled repainting is necessary every 5 - 10 years to keep painted brick looking good as new
While cleaning painted brick is easier than cleaning a porous brick surface, because the finished product looks so glossy and clean, you’ll also notice that dirt and grime build up quicker. This may result in more regular cleaning of your brick exterior.
