Brick Staining vs. Brick Painting
When a colour change is desired, people will often try to paint over the natural surface of the bricks. While this can look cool, painting is not permanent and requires a lot of upkeep, especially on outdoor surfaces that are exposed to the elements. Staining on the other hand, is permanent. Brick staining acts much like wood stain in the sense that the colour is absorbed by the brick.
Exterior Brick Staining
Brick staining is a much more durable option for exterior surfaces. It acts more like a dye and therefore won’t chip off over time as paint does. Brick staining is a great way to update your exterior and increase the curb appeal of your home.
