Painting a brick surface
Preparation is key: If this is an outdoor project, the ideal time to undertake it is when the weather is sunny with low humidity. Replace any missing mortar before starting the process. Then clean the surface of your bricks thoroughly, using a handheld wire brush to remove any stubborn buildups. Finally, give the surface a wash with household detergent and either a scrub brush, hose, or power washer.
Make sure the bricks are completely dry before applying a primer or conditioner coat. You can use a brush, roller, or sprayer. When you start with the final colour, use an acrylic elastomeric paint for a topcoat. It will tolerate temperature changes and allow for expansion and contraction. Depending on the desired look, you may want a second coat. Ideal Superior Roller Cover would be 24mm or 28mm Nap Lambskin.
Painting a concrete surface
Painting concrete isn’t all that difficult—just make sure the surface is clean and dry. If you’re painting the floor of a garage or carport stained with motor oil or transmission fluid, you’ll want to take extra steps to remove the residue. There are multiple degreasers specifically available for this task, which generally require several hours to dry (turning the grease to an easy-to-sweep-up powder) and then an additional day or two for the evaporation of residual moisture. You’ll need an extremely durable product, such as an oil-based exterior deck paint or an epoxy paint. The latter is more durable and will stand up longer against potential hot tire damage. This job is easiest with a roller that has an extended handle so you can paint without hunching over. You’ll also want to have a few brushes of varying sizes on hand to get at those spots a roller can’t reach. Ideal Superior Roller Cover would be 24mm Nap Lambskin.
