Painted house bricks

Postby alison1971 » Sun Feb 22, 2009 4:39 pm


Can anyone tell me how to and what to use to remove some red/pinkly colour paint which has been painted on bricks of the front of a house I am buying. Looks a mess and I am unsure what to use incase I get something that may damage the bricks.

Any help would be fab

Your chances of removing paint from the face of the bricks is remote. If the bricks are clay you may find sandblasting effective, if they are a sandfaced brick you will remove the sandface and they will look awful.
If you are not too far down the line do not buy the house.
