should a sealer be used on exposed brick walls? - I have recently taken off old plaster to expose interior brick walls. After cleaning should I seal them? Is there a sealer that won't alter the look of the brick? I would like to avoid the "glossy" look. Thanks, Theresa

I haven't heard that brick needs to be sealed, so I'm curious to see if someone knows the answer for sure.

My assumption is that it does not, since it's traditionally one of the low maintenance building materials.

I removed paint from brick in my condo kitchen using Peel Away, then used a brush to wash, and sealed with linseed oil. I applied it once and in 11 years did not do anything more to the brick. It looked great.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Make the Most of a Console Table
Go beyond the foyer. Don't have an actual entryway? (Don't feel bad, I don't either.) You can still use the console strategy along a wall in a living room. It also translates nicely to the way you might set up the top of a sideboard or buffet in your dining room.
Bring back the brick. The 1970s turned many of us against the internal exposed brick wall — happily this look is on the rise again. Done well, humble brick adds texture and character to many styles of architecture. Old bricks were often handmade and have a beautiful feel. New bricks can entice the colors out of your flooring and furniture.Tip: Don't forget to have older bricks resealed for extra insulation. Use a matte sealant for a more organic, earthy look.
