What do you get when you order a Brick-Anew kit?
5 shades of latex paint product, a tool kit (which includes 3 small rollers, 1 roller handle, sponge, painter’s tape, 1 small paint brush, 1 medium paint brush, rubber glove, and a paint stir stick.) You also receive a step by step instructional DVD.
I’ve never done a do-it-yourself project before. How hard is the process?
It’s not hard at all. Paint on a base coat over all your brick and mortar. Use a roller or sponge to apply 4 “undertone” colors. That’s it! You don’t have to be artistic. It’s like following a recipe. Just do the steps in order and you should get beautiful results.
"I don’t like fireplaces that look like someone just slapped a can of paint over the brick."
How is Brick-Anew different than that?
Brick-Anew makes it look like you're bricked your fireplace with a different color brick. The bricks’ texture remains the same, it’s just the color of the brick that’s changed. The undertone colors provide the color variation real brick has, thus the effect is so realistic that many of our customers are so excited that they are proud to send us their before and after pictures.
Can I buy Brick-Anew at a retail store?
No, we only sell the kit from our website at this time.
How is Brick-Anew shipped?
Fed Ex Ground in the Continental United States and UPSStandard to Canada.
How long will it take for me to receive my order?
We ship Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from Atlanta,GA.
How much base coat comes in the kit?
2 quarts which will cover approximately 80 sq ft.
Do I need the clear matte finish?
The clear matte finish, which comes in a quart container, is a clear, non-shiny polyurethane that paint over your Brick-Anew to protect your painted brick surface. It is an optional step in the process and is not included in the kit. Your fireplace undergoes some serious wear-and-tear, and our clear matte finish adds an extra layer of protection against damage from fireplace tools, stacked logs, and other items placed on your hearth. Covers 75 sq. feet.
Is shipping free?
Shipping is free for orders $199.00 and up in the continental United States. (See our policy page for more shipping information.) For Canada, there is a $30 charge
Will Brick-Anew work on fireplace brick that’s been painted before?
Yes. If the fireplace was painted with a latex paint, just go right over it with Brick-Anew. If the fireplace was painted with an oil-based paint, lightly sand the brick to rough up the surface, apply a lacquer sealer which you can purchase at a local paint store, and then start the Brick-Anew process.
Are there any harsh fumes in the Brick-Anew kit?
No, since the kit only contains latex product. However, the black firebox paint, which you can order separately, has very strong fumes until it dries.
How long does the Brick-Anew process take to complete?
For a standard sized fireplace (about 48 square feet of brick) it will take about 4 - 5 hours.
What publications has Brick-Anew been seen in?
Southern Living, Decorate with Paint, Country Sampler Magazine, The Virginian Pilot, Concrete and Masonry Magazine, and Paint Magic Magazine.
