Seal/Not Seal Brick Exterior

danvirsse
11 years ago

We have a 1838 Double Brick Home we purchased last fall. It is located in the Mid-Atlantic, so we have months of freezing temperatures. The masons have completed the exterior re-pointing/brick replacement. Now the question seems to be whether or not we should apply a sealer.

Any experiences/thoughts would be appreciated.

The bricks are very soft and porous as they were produced at the local brickyard in had packed molds. Does that change anything?

Thanks for any help you may offer.
