What could affect the price of the Exterior Brick Painting?

The exterior brick painting costs of your home are influenced by several factors. Consider what follows when planning your exterior brick painting budget:

  1. The size of the job. Typically, the larger the job, the lower the price per unit.
  2. The difficulty of the job. A project of exterior brick painting will cost you more if you need it to reach areas that might be difficult to access (i.e. fixtures outside, oddly placed corners that require a special machine to reach). Such areas require extra effort and will incur more expenses. 
  3. Preparation work required. Preparing the surface is essential for any exterior painting project. This also applies to exterior brick painting. We refer to preparation as removing plants, covering surfaces, and taping to ensure the paint does not reach undesired areas. 
  4. Season– When it comes to exterior painting your home, fall is the best season to do so. 
  5. How soon you want it done, and how fast you need it done. Your painting company might need to increase the price of the job by paying extra for overtime hours, moving a job, or canceling one.
  6. Payment terms i.e. Visa vs e-transfer. There are many reasons why clients may like to use their credit card; however, this payment method has a fee attached that increases the overall price. 
  7. The number of coats that are involved. The number of coats involved depends on the color you choose. A higher number of coats means a higher price for exterior brick painting. 
  8. If you hire a professional when it comes to painting, you may save money and time. A professional will be able to determine whether a surface is suitable for painting and ensure the job has been completed properly the first time.

Make arrangements with your professional painters in advance to complete some of the preparation work yourself and possibly save yourself some money. The painter’s life will be much simpler if the exterior has been cleaned and the amount of work he has to do will be lessened. As a result, the exterior brick painting process will cost you less.

2. Will you include the paint, materials and labour?

Yes, all the materials to protect and prepare the walls as well as labor are included.

3. Do I have to move things around and clear the areas to be painted before the painters come?

Usually yes, painters can do it for you but that will add on the hours of your project and it will increase your overall estimate. But!, if there’s any oversized item that you cannot move on your own, it’s normally ok to ask them to give you a hand to move it a bit to allow them to paint.

4. How long will my project take?

Most jobs will take 2 and 5 days. But if your in a rush, inquire about our 1 or 2 day painting services.

5. How do I pick my colours?

We can suggest some of the most popular colours to get  you started from Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams. If you really need help, one of our experts can come to help you pick colours.

6. Who will you be sending to do my project?

The project will be completed by our in-house painters, who are all experienced and professionally trained (and not subcontractors).

Difference between exterior brick painting and exterior brick staining?

Exterior Brick Painting

Brick Painting Mechanical Bond

Brick painting is the option to go with when you cannot stain your bricks — i.e. if there’s already a sealant or stain on the bricks. Basically, you can’t do a stain or sealant over top another stain.

Painting your bricks is a good option if you’re looking to really change up the colour and you want something long-lasting. We do offer a guarantee on our brick painting work for three years.

Going the brick painting route is often the less expensive option. So, if you’re looking for something more economical and budget-friendly, brick painting might be the right option for you.

Exterior Brick Staining

Brick Staining Mechanical and Chemical Bond

Brick staining offers a great longevity for the exterior of your home. If you go with brick stain, it’s the super durable option as the stain basically works to become a part of the brick. It repels water and dirt better than brick paint, which is always a consideration for classic Canadian weather — especially in Toronto!

Contrary to what you might think, you can get a brick stain in a variety of colours as well. So, your options are wide open. If you really want to show off the integrity of your brick, there are also clear and semi-transparent options when it comes to stain.

If you do it right, brick staining can really last a lifetime. It is slightly more expensive, but we also guarantee our brick staining work for 15 years.

Our expert recommendation is to go with brick staining whenever possible in order to get the best return on your investment in the long run.

What to do now that you are ready for brick painting?

Step 1 Icon


Contact us and we will get you a quote immediately! We are the fastest response painters in the business and can offer same-day pricing.

Next, one of our exterior brick painting experts will arrive on-site and give you a job scope analysis, a professional color consultation and a detailed estimate of the cost of what you want to be painted.

Step Two Booking


We will book the job with you, set up an ideal start date, help you pick the right colors, charge your deposit, and confirm any other exterior scope details just to make sure we are all on the same page.

Weather permitting, our painters will show up on time on the scheduled first day of the job. Next, we will do a walk-through with you to double-check that we understand your job details.  Subsequently, our team of professionals will get started on your exterior brick painting project.

Step Three Paint


Our first objective will be to start by tackling the areas that need tending to. First, we’ll cover your outdoor furniture and yard with drop sheets to protect them from dripping paint. Secondly, our painters will start on the most important part of the brick painting: the preparation. We will diligently clean, scrape, sand, caulk, fill, and prime any areas that are in need of surface preparation. We’ll then finish things off by painting the bricks with two finish coats.

Step Four Quality Check


Once we are complete, our team will clean up the area and ensure that the area looks as it looked before we came (with the exception of freshly painted brick, of course)! Lastly, our team will do a final walk-through with you to make sure that you are happy with the job before we consider it complete. Remember, we are not satisfied until you are satisfied!

We are so confident in our exterior brick painting work that we offer a three year warranty!
