    My wife wants to change the color on the house,but it's brick.So we have been looking for masonery paint and have found the color we want at Sherwin Williams.They say we will have to ROLL it on and I'm wanting to spray it on.They show them spraying brick on all of the house flipping shows so why can't I spray our's.What all is involved,I'm assuming it will have to reduced to spray,but will it affect the color.Wouldnt be so bad rolling it but it's going to take about 12 gallons to paint it.

    If they can spray stucco why can't you spray brick? I know they have done a few houses in my town by spraying it. I think spraying gives it a better coat and alot less work too!

    I have rolled paint on new concrete block's before and it took forever to get all the little spot's I can imagine how bad brick will be.

    Definitely want to spray as un-even a surface as brick... No way you'll get good coverage with a roller!
