  • painting over red bricks

    Hi all,

    I own a site which has a new house (that i'm building) and a brick and block house beside it. As I'm planning to get a good sale price for the new house, i would like to paint over the red brick which is quite an eye sore when it's right next to the new house.

    To paint the bricks, I've read that a sealer is required to go over the bricks before applying 2 top coats. Does anyone have an idea how much painting over the bricks, including sealer and 2 top coats, (floor area is around 120m2) would cost?

    Also, besides painting, are there any other ways to cover up the red bricks on the upper level of the house?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!

      Plaster them?
      Still have to paint though.

        I would also plaster them. Painted brick can look awful as the unevenness of the laying becomes obvious.

          I've just had my brick home painted. They put an undercoat on, followed by two topcoats. Personally I like painted brick as opposed to plaster as the texture of the brick remains. To each his own.
          Cost was ballpark $17k (which included painting the roof) plus scaffolding of $6k ish. House roughly 200m.
