Chip and Joanna updated this 1990s riverfront brick home with crisp blue-green paint and contrasting wood accents. Opt for this unique hue to paint the exterior of your home to create a modern-meets-rustic curb appeal that will stop passersby in their tracks.
Spruce up your curb appeal with a little help from our collection of before-and-after exterior makeovers. Whether your home is a cozy cottage or a two-story brick Georgian, you'll find plenty of inspiration to help you along the way.
Painting your brick house or wall doesn't have to be difficult. Follow our simple preparation and application steps for a great result you can be proud of. British Paints. Sure Can.
Using the wrong type of paint, or not noticing chips or cracks in the paint can trap moisture in the porous bricks and cause mold or a breakdown of the brick. Brick experts agree that to correctly maintain your painted brick, it should be repainted every 3-5 years.
Whether limewashed or painted, exterior brick will have to be updated as the paint begins to fail. Limewashing the brick will last longer than a latex paint application. Painted brick may fail after as little as 5-10 years and hiring someone to paint the exterior of a home is quite expensive.
