Disadvantages of Painted Bricks
The biggest concern is, that even the smallest of cracks in your brickwork paint will allow moisture to seep into the brickwork and gradually erode the face of the brick. Progressive erosion makes the restoration process more and more expensive, due to the growing area of repair. Over time, the moisture under the paint can cause damp and mould to appear inside the property. Therefore, removing the paint from bricks should be carried out as soon as possible to prevent serious erosion of bricks.
