Understand brick staining with The Goodbrush
If you’re thinking about refreshing the colour of your brick exterior, fireplace or interior accent wall, you probably have a few questions about the process.
Should you choose brick staining or brick painting?
Brick staining has many advantages over painting — not just how it looks, but functionally too.
While both methods will allow you to give your home a brand new look, brick staining will preserve the bricks’ natural texture and protect it, becoming a permanent, breathable finish. Stain is absorbed into the brick, becoming a part of it, while paint only forms a covering layer.
If you choose to paint your brick, you’ll be covering it in a thick coat of latex, hiding the natural texture of the brick. Paint is also more likely to peel and crack over time, as it won’t allow the covered brick to breathe.
Choosing the right type of brick stain
There are two types of brick stains — water-based brick staining and brick stains with sealant.
Water-based brick staining is The Goodbrush recommendation for most projects. Because they’re water-based, the bricks absorb these stains, preventing excess water build-up within the brick while still allowing for breathability.
On the other hand, brick stains premixed with sealant create a watertight covering when applied to bricks but aren’t equipped to prevent water damage over time. These sealing stains serve the purpose for specific applications — like small areas where it’s needed or for surfaces where there are damaged or excessively porous bricks. Using a stain with sealant can trap water within the bricks and cause cracking when temperatures drop.
What is the process for brick staining?
When you work with The Goodbrush for your brick staining projects, there are fixed steps we follow to ensure you’re 100% satisfied with the completed job.
After discussing the project and communicating costs and timelines, we start by cleaning the brick surface. If there is previously applied sealant, we’ll remove it for you with tried-and-tested safe methods that won’t damage your brick.
If there’s no sealant, we’ll wash the surfaces with a mild detergent to ensure it’s clean and ready for staining.
The area around your project will be covered with drop sheets and tape, if needed, to protect it before we start applying the stain. Our expert professionals will use only the best materials and methods to complete the job safely and smoothly, ensuring consistent colour and even application.
We’ll clean up thoroughly and let the stain dry completely before inspecting the finished surfaces with you. You’ll get expert tips on maintaining your newly upgraded brick surfaces and the assurance of a comprehensive 3-year warranty.
