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We understand why you want to get rid of your outdated bricks and enjoy a new curb appeal.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.
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!
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!
Important to note, although prices at Home Painters may vary, brick staining starts at $3,995 + hst. Getting a better price by bundling other painting, carpentry, or handyman services will grow your project and help you save money.
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.

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.
Most jobs will take 2 and 5 days. But if your in a rush, inquire about our 1 or 2 day painting services.
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.
The project will be completed by our in-house painters, who are all experienced and professionally trained (and not subcontractors).
Hiring a painting contractor to come into your home can be downright scary. There are so many horror stories out there about people getting taken advantage of because they didn’t know how to pick a painter and didn’t ask the right questions.
So here are 10 questions you must ask your painter before hiring them. It’s important to know what to look for in professional painters to put safety first since the painter and their colleagues may be meeting your family and children, seeing your possessions, will become familiar with your schedule and learning many more details about your personal life.
A lot of homeowners regret going with a cheap and inexperienced contractor or not checking how reliable the company is and how much expertise they have in the matter. Unfortunately, many times they embark on brick staining without a formal contract to make sure they’re getting the job right.
