The Brick Painting Process

The process for painting brick can vary depending on the type of brick and the project requirements, but most projects follow a process similar to the one below:

Prep & Clean Brick

The first step is to make sure the brick is clean and clear of any dirt or grime. This is usually done with power washing equipment and steel brushes. Cracks and other issues are also repaired as part of the prep process.

Whitewashing & Limewashing For Brick Surfaces

Whitewashing and limewashing offer a popular and attractive look for brick surfaces. The process is similar, but not the same as painting brick. Whitewash is typically made from lime, but there are alternative products available that offer the same look using other materials. The product is applied to the brick lightly and then dabbed with a cloth. Whitewashed brick can vary in how much white is used, a CertaPro representative can discuss options and find the best look for your home in an initial estimate appointment.
