The exterior face of my brick home is painted - I don't know why someone would paint brick (I purchased the home this way). I have considered hiring someone to sandblast but I have heard this will destroy the brick. I also considered re-painting the face of the house only but I think it looks odd (just the face being painted) and I don't want to paint the entire house. Does anyone have any suggestions on a paint remover? Although, I have heard the gel products are best but I have also heard that brick is very porous so removing with any type of paint removers will be extremely time consuming. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
