Like all masonry surfaces, brick is meant to breathe in order for it to do its job correctly and for it to last. Because the purpose of standard architectural coatings is to protect the surface from the elements the process of priming and painting those surfaces with standard water based or oil based primers and paints seal the surface, not allowing them to breathe. Therefore, priming and painting brick, especially exterior brick can create issues with the performance of the primer/paint and the brick leading to bubbling, chipping, peeling, cracking, and spalling. By using the correct type of coating (mineral based) you can achieve the look you want without creating a potential long term and expensive maintenance and performance issue for the paint and the brick.
