Painting exterior of brick home
I live in a brick ranch build in 1976, its wood framed with brick cladding. The brick is down right ugly, its a mix of a few different colors of gray/tan and has some serious clay staining around the bottom. I really want to paint the exterior of the brick but I’m not sure how smart of an idea that is. I know the brick need to allow moisture to pass through so that has me looking at products such as Behr Elastomeric Masonry paint which claims to be breathable. Sherwin Williams has a similar product called SherLastic but from the info I have found online it doesn’t make any claims to be breathable. Does anyone have any recommendations on a product for this application?
