Brick Painting or Brick Staining: Which one is better?

Brick Painting and Brick Staining may seem like the same thing but they
aren’t. Whether you choose to paint your brick or stain it, there are
several things you need to take into consideration first.

Painting brick is one of the most popular DIY trends right now. It’s easy
to do and can change the entire look and feel of whichever room the brick
is located. It also requires maintenance to keep up with the look and feel

surface of the brick resulting in the paint peeling from the surface.

Stayntech, you won’t have to paint your brick every 3-5 years as your
bricks will be able to breathe and release moisture without any blistering,
chipping or peeling.

Painting brick leaves an artificial film over it while Stayntech® forms a
penetrating bond. This is the biggest reason that staining your brick can
change the entire look and feel of not only your own home but an entire
