Frequently asked questions when it comes to brick staining
what’s the 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 stain, it rarely fades over time as the stain basically becomes a part of the 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 paint 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!
what is the cost of brick staining?
Brick staining instead of painting does cost more upfront, but due to the longevity the need for very little maintenance over the years, it’s the more cost effective option for homeowners.
For the material, a gallon of brick stain ranges from $60-$80 per gallon. One gallon can cover about 200-300 square feet. To hire a professional company, like Home Painters Toronto, it can range anywhere from $2500 to $12,000 for stain and labor. It all depends on the size and height of your home.
what kind of colours are available for 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 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 stain matching to your original bricks!
