-- Painting brick is a great way to change the appearance of your home or business without the cost of resurfacing your building. The Painting Penguin, a painting company in Atlanta, encourages you to use a professional if you intend to paint your brick.
Painting brick is a time-intensive process that requires a good deal of preparation and a strong eye for detail to do correctly. The painters at The Painting Penguin understand the level of attentiveness proper brick painting requires, and they know that the average property owner will benefit from their expertise.
The most important step in painting brick doesn't even involve paint: It involves the preparation of the brick before painting. Brick can get dirty and retain dirt easily. If any dirt is present on your brick, the paint will not stick for long. The wall will need to be thoroughly washed before any other steps can be taken. You will then have to cover the brick with a layer or two of specialized masonry primer.
Once the primer has dried, the brick will be ready to be painted. The painting process is a painstaking one as each groove and side of brick has to be covered. It is very easy for you to miss spots with the paint if you choose to paint the brick yourself.
"Our skilled painters at The Painting Penguin know all of the places that homeowners often overlook, and they ensure that those areas are painted. They take the time to do the job right the first time so that your brick looks amazing," says Stephen Popov, Managing Partner of The Painting Penguin.
