Lime wash picture

June 27, 2010

I know there are several folks interested in limewashing their brick including us. This is a picture from one of our prospective builder's websites showing a limewash on brick. He said it took 3 coats to achieve this level of opacity on the finish, but that it was a great way to achieve an instant patina on a house.

He also said it does show moisture when it rains or from the irrigation system (as does mortar wash I believe). He also said it will wear over many years and continue to add an aged look to the brick. The product he used was from U.S. Lime.

Thought I would pass it along in case anyone is interested.
