The Quality of Paint is So Important

Aesthetics is the apparent thing for which the brick is to be painted, however, along with surface beautification good quality paint also acts as a protection for the wall against different elements that might affect the quality of the wall in long run. 

Paint acts as a sealant and protects from the effect caused due to changes in season. The only thing that must be given due importance is the quality of the paint. The paint that is of good quality seals the crack and does not allow moisture to seep into the paint. So this is how the quality of paint matters.

Pay Attention to the Neighborhood Color Scheme

The color pattern that you choose for your brick home should be well thought of and in accordance with the neighborhood. If most of the homes on your street are of similar style to your home and are painted with a darker color, using a light color like Pure White on the brick of your home can throw off the look of your home compared to the others and could also spark resistance with your HOA or Homeowners Association in your neighborhood. 

That’s why it is always recommended to choose the right color scheme. There are always some particular range of colors that suits the particular area.

Weather Factors When Painting

Weather factors should be counted on before planning to paint and in the long term as well. It is generally advised to try best to be in moderate weather and temperatures above 40 degrees when painting the exterior of your brick home. The long term factor should be counted as well because if the certain area generally gets hit with a lot of sun or your home is located in a very sunny and hot climate, then it is advised to not go for too dark of an exterior paint color.

The high temperature area looks good with light colors because of the little cooling effect of color satisfies the psychological reasons. However, the dark paint color goes absolutely perfect with the areas that have cold temperature more often. The reasoning behind the dark color in the cold weather is that its warmth comforts the sight.
