      I am preparing a rental house for sale for my mother. The house is red brick, but the front of the house has been painted (acrylic latex). I don’t like painted brick, but in the interest of uniformity I plan to paint the entire exterior. Does brick require priming prior to the finish coat? If primer is required, should I use alkyd or latex primer?

      With brick, I powerwash first, to get the surface clean, then a latex masonary primer should be applied before your topcoat. It’s best to use latex products outside because of weather and temperature change. Good Luck!
