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.
