Painter and Render bricks are another option for acheiving the solidity of a brick home with the choice of paint and texture of your choice.
Mortar finishes determine the overall look on painted brick. A flush mortar works well with the textured face of the wirecut bricks whilst the smooth painter is enhanced by a raked joint to produce clean lines so the brick shape is still being accentuated. Laying is important to the finish with smeared mortar or bagging options along with mismatched or random cut lay all playing a huge part in aesthetics.
When painting over a brick, the bricks need to have cured on the wall with the mortar and be clean, dry and then the correct masonry sealer needs to be applied. Paint should also be applied in accordance with the paint system being used. Refer to you paint supplier for application details.
