Costly continued maintenance of painted masonry is an ongoing issue for many homeowners. When paint is applied to brick, it saturates the masonry’s pores, preventing it from releasing moisture. Water is trapped behind a non-permeable film that lies on the brick surface, resulting in unsightly blistering and peeling.The Brick Industry Association, a trade association devoted specifically to the clay brick industry, reports that painted masonry may only last between three to five years.
Our proprietary Stayntech® masonry stains do not block the evaporation process and provide longevity that simply cannot be matched by paint. As brick is a highly porous material, our stains are formulated to create a bond with brick and will never chip or flake due to moisture trapped within the masonry.
