Brick is not meant to be painted. So, its going to require more maintenance. Be sure thats what you want before you paint it, because once its done, its done. Repair any bad chips in the brick. Decide if you want the mortar lines painted or not. Clean the brick of any algae, mold, dirt or mineral deposits. If not, tape them off. The brick has to be dry. Then paint it with an alkaline-resistant primer. It may require more than one coat. Then apply the paint. Again, it may take more than 1 coat. You will have to repaint it every 3 to 5 years.

Think twice before painting. The previous owners of our home did this and we have to touch up constantly.

The only alternative would have been to sandblast the paint off. That would have been a mess and expensive
