We've had good success by first applying paint full strength to the house, allowing to dry for 30-60 minutes. We then powerwash all of the painted brick.

Here is an example of a house we did a couple of years ago. In this case the HO's home had an ugly 70's style pale yellow brick. We painted each individual brick with Country Redwood Moorgard from Ben Moore. Allowed to dry overnight then we applied a coat of Ben Moore's Brilliant White Moorlife. Allowed to dry for only 30 minutes before power washing.

And how does one who has no clue about this go about figuring out if the brick is soft or hard?

Roamer, that house looks great. Thanks for sharing this technique. I'm just wondering about how you dealt with the mess that I'm assuming was made after powerwashing. Lots of shrubs and stuff at the base of that house. Lots and lots of watering down the run-off?

We put plastic down to capture some of the paint residue that ran off of the house. We also re-mulched the front of the house to cover up any residue that made it past the plastic. You definitely need to mask the windows and doors during the process.

I have been researching lime based coating to touch up my buddies home. Any guidance you could provide is greatly appreciated. It is a 1940's construction home. The exterior brick is red common brick, the areas the original coating failed have no peeling, and no chalking. It's as if the topcoat simply rinsed away. The coating is not a white rather an off whitish gray.
