Quick Tip: Painting Masonry
Though brick, stone, and concrete require special considerations, even a beginning do-it-yourselfer can paint masonry with ease.
Here are some things to keep in mind when you’re painting masonry. Like any other surface, masonry needs to be prepared thoroughly before painting. Make sure any loose and flaking paint is removed, then coat with masonry conditioner. After 24 hours, a coat of primer is important before the finish coat to ensure even coverage and a beautiful end result.
