There are many options when it comes to brick paints, stains, and treatments for the brick walls of your home. At Five Star Painting, there are a handful of proven and time-tested coatings and materials we prefer more than the rest, though.
The masonry paints and treatments we offer include:
- Classic Italian limewashing
- Trendy whitewashing
- Brick staining and tinting
- Classic Italian mineral paint
- Prime/seal brick and top coat with latex
- Elastomeric coatings—several product choices available
- German schmear, also called sacking
The limewashing and mineral paints in particular are industry favorites. Lime naturally discourages algae, mold, and mildew growth. Using it in brick paints and treatments helps protect the brick from the elements, greatly reducing the need for regular upkeep.
Limewash vs. Whitewash. What's the Difference?
Limewash or Whitewash? While both treatments look amazing at the end, it's important to know the difference.
Limewash treatments involve using limestone particles that have been crushed into a putty-like substance. Either tinted or white, the end product gives a matte, chalky look and feel.
Whitewash treatments apply a water-based paint-and-water solution to the brick. The result is a thin layer of paint, allowing for some brick to show through. This trendy treatment tones down the color of your natural brick with the paint color you're looking for.
