  1. We have a brick patio, 12 x 12 inch sq bricks, looks like at one time they were red brick but someone (previous owner) painted the whole patio and then someone painted them again, so there are 2 layers of paint. needless to say after a few years the paint is peeling horribly…our patio looks like a brown (top layer) and light blue (bottom layer) Holstein cow. Its awful…the grout is cracking where the paint was applied thicker…its a mess
    Is there a resurfacing product that can be applied over this that will not peel like paint?

  2. Dont ever never paint bricks or stone walls . Paint or stain will never hold up to weather and temp changes threw out the year . With in two years the pain will start chip and peel off in places . Then over time the paint starts to fade . Then what you will have a bigger mess that needs to be painted again and again . That will get tiring over time . If you dont like your bricks color or just dont like bricks at all you can cover it with stone Veneer's . here the thing about painted wall once the wall is painted it will take a lot of money to get it back to clean brick again and you have to get the bricks clean and all paint off before you Veneer your brick wall . Another thing you may not like the brick color or colors and most people may not like your color when it is time to sell . But every one loves the look of stone . So please not ever paint or stain stone or brick . Never worked before and never work now .
