Caring for Materials that Outlast Centuries: Brick Staining Basics

Brick walls are among the longest standing construction materials ever designed, so much so that a lot of history’s most prominent structures have survived because of the material that holds them. However, bricks, as with even the most durable of materials, aren’t so much about “leaving them be” as it is about the regular care and maintenance due to any material, including bricks and the structures they hold in place. Here are some maintenance tips about a brick staining method that can render your brick walls looking as good as new. How to stain brick walls Cleaning Begin the staining process by washing down your exposed brick wall, saturating as much of it as possible. While the wall is still wet, scrub an efficient cleaning solution on it (simple vinegar should do the trick if you don’t have commercial brick cleaner) with a firm-bristled brush. Then, allow it to dry before staining. Choosing Stains In most cases, staining your wall is the more efficient option than painting, as it is less invasive and allows for a more natural look. When choosing the stain however, you should decide on what you need; a semi-transparent stain, for instance, should keep the original luster and color of your brick wall. Safety According to SF Gate, you should consider your safety gear before jumping straight into staining: “Put on a pair of safety goggles, rubber gloves and a respirator before getting to work. You may also want to wear some old work clothes and cover the mortar surrounding your bricks with painter’s tape to avoid any accidental spotting outside the bricks themselves. Place plastic sheets or tarps along the bottom of the wall.” Staining Proper Now you can finally begin – begin by applying the stain gently with the use of a paintbrush that’s about the same width as a single brick. Keep from applying the stain too thick; it might eventually change the brick’s color. Let the first coat dry completely before adding another. Of course, you can always hire dependable brick staining companies like PBS Nationwide, Inc. to do the job for you. These professional contractors offer a lot more services for your home—painting or dyeing brick, and restoring historical homes, among others.

Staining Your Exterior Brick Wall and Other Important Maintenance Tips

There’s a reason why cathedrals, palaces, and even The Great Wall of China were all built using bricks—it’s one of the toughest construction materials known to man. What’s more, brick walls also provide protection against extreme weather, immunity to termites, impressive thermal performance and fire resistance. That being said, a brick wall still needs occasional maintenance to ward off wear and tear, as well as to preserve its beauty. Home improvement blogger Bob Vila details one upkeep that will keep such walls functioning at their best: “Repointing Repointing is necessary in places where the mortar joints have become soft or the mortar itself is cracked or damaged. The damaged mortar is removed carefully so as not to disturb the surrounding brickwork. Fresh mortar is applied in layers. When repointing, the depth of the new mortar should be twice the width of the mortar joint. Mortar applied directly to the damaged surface will not hold up.” Besides repointing, here are other maintenance tips to heed when taking care of your brick walls: Brick basics: Maintenance, Care and cleaning Trim Vegetation While an ivy-covered wall has a quaint charm to it, vegetation traps moisture that can compromise a brick wall’s integrity, aside from producing humic acid that can eat away at the mortar. Dig up the ivy’s root, cut them off, and allow the vine to wilt off your wall. Use Proper Cleaning Technique Different stains need different cleaning solutions. Mortar stains can be cleaned using a solution of one part muriatic acid and three parts water. On the other hand, algae, mildew and mold call for a solution of equal parts chlorine bleach and water. If you plan to use a power washer, set the pressure no higher than 1000 PSI and keep the nozzle at least 300mm away from the wall. Keep Your Wall Beautiful Brick walls add a unique aesthetic appeal to homes but time can tarnish that beauty. Fortunately, companies like Preferred Brick Staining Nationwide offer a proprietary exterior brick stain called Chem-Bond 2000 that bonds with the brick and becomes a permanent part of it, while protecting it against atmospheric sulfuric acid. Your brick walls protect your family from the elements so take the time to maintain them. Controlling vegetation, using proper cleaning technique, and staining exterior brick walls are all steps you can take to protect it and prolong its life.
