Why do people paint their brick and stonework?
This is a question we have been asking ourselves for over 30 years after performing our paint removal from brick service on all types of paint from thousands of brick and stone properties and these are some of the replies that we have received.
“To brighten up the exterior of their property after years of air pollution and grime that have made the property look dirty and dull”
“To cover up splashes of paint that had been caused when the woodwork had been repainted.”
“Some people said at the time that painting the brick and stonework was the fashion but unfortunately, they did not know the damage they were causing to their property leading to problems such as preventing the brick/stone to breathe, or that water could get behind the paint and cause dampness inside the property.”
These are just a few examples.
The question that I am regularly asked is, “Can the paint be removed?”
The answer is “Yes”, our paint removal from brick service is perfect for this by using the best paint stripper that we offer.
The removing paint from brickwork process causes no damage to any of the brick or stonework and leaves the property looking clean and fresh and also at the same time adding to its value.
Important – Where paint stripping services are involved, we advise that under no circumstances should sandblasting be used at any time, as this always removes the face of the brick and damages some types of stone, such as the cut stone on the window heads, sills, door surrounds and patterned stone etc.
We have noticed in the past that when the brick has been subject to sandblasting it leaves the brick porous which causes damp problems inside the property.
