Exterior brick staining is one of the easiest ways to make a big change on your curb appeal. After spending so many years with the same bricks (and for the past year also at home), we understand how important it is to pull off such a project. So, if you’re thinking of painting the exterior bricks of your home, in Toronto and the GTA, you have to think about the conditions of the bricks you’re painting and if any work needs to be done. Another consideration is to understand if your bricks were previously painted or sealed since that won’t allow the stain to stick (more on that later). 

But don’t let this overwhelm you and stop you to continue with your project, we’ll help you get a better idea of this process and most importantly, the costs involved in doing it.

A lot of people stop and consider — Does brick staining last and is worth it? If you can (based on the condition of your bricks), 100% of the time we recommend going with staining since it becomes part of the brick and according to the stain manufacturers it can last over 15 years (but it normally lasts much longer). You’ll want to know what their painting cost per square foot usually averages out to be. You’ll also want to think about their hourly rate and the average cost to paint a house. So, let’s dig right in and get started!

We understand why you want to get rid of your outdated bricks and enjoy a new curb appeal. We’ve helped hundreds of homes with Staining their Bricks professionally and with 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed on paper. Seamless, painless, fast.

Difference between brick staining and painting

Brick staining is actually better for the health of the bricks themselves as the stain allows them to breathe. If you go with brick stain, it rarely fades over time as the stain basically becomes a part of the brick. Brick stain doesn’t simply cover the brick like a paint does, but it fully adheres and becomes a permanent fixture.

Brick stain works to stop water from absorbing as well, so there’s a real longevity to it. Not to mention the prevention of cracking and peeling, which can occur with painting brick over the years.

People are often unsure if they can even stain their bricks or they ask themselves if it’s the right way to go for their home. 

If your bricks have not been painted or stained before, you can 100% stain your bricks! If you’re unsure, simply do the quick water splash test. If the brick absorbs the water, it can be stained. If the water does not absorb and beads down the wall, it cannot be stained. 

Not only does brick staining work to maintain the original aesthetics of the home and architecture, but it’s healthier for the brick itself, more cost effective in the long run and can last upwards of 15 years!

Colours available for exterior brick staining

There are so many colours to choose from when it comes to brick stain! If you’re thinking of stain, one thing to consider is whether you should go semi-transparent or solid. Generally, if you’re happy with the look of your bricks and you want to change the hue, go with a semi-transparent brick stain. By going with semi-transparent, you’re keeping the integrity of the brick, but just changing the colour.

It depends on what you are trying to achieve. We can go from light to dark with the stain or even the opposite. We also offer special brick stain matching to your original bricks!

But if you want a quick and easy way to get have an idea, here is just some general ball park prices based on historical averages.

Approximate prices for exterior brick staining

Small to medium brick staining job: $4,000 to $6,000 + HST

Medium to large brick staining job: $6,000 to $10,000 + HST

  1. The difficulty of the job. A project of exterior brick staining 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. 
  2. How soon you want it done, and how fast you need it done. In this case, your painting company might need to pay extra for extra hours, move a job, or cancel one, which could increase the price. 
  3. Tied to the previous point, if you have a flexible schedule you can take advantage of a low season like the end of winter or the end of summer to get it done.
  4. The size of the job. The larger the job, the lower the price per unit. 
  5. Payment terms i.e. Visa vs e-transfer. A lot of clients like to use their credit cards for many reasons, however, these payments come with a fee that increases the overall price. 
  6. The amount of preparation involved. i.e. isolating to avoid painting undesired areas (i.e removing plants, covering and taping). 
  7. 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 staining.  
  8. Number of colours: if you can keep it to 5 colours max that will not increase the price because there are less difficulty and paint (stain) waste.
  9. Different types of paint can increase cost. We use high-quality paint so you can rest assured you’re well covered. Nevertheless, if you want something very specific and ultra-premium that can potentially increase the price.

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).
