Hi All,

I'm looking for some advice on removing stubborn paint from external brick after removing extension? It's a bit of a eye sore!

Any tips? I've tried a couple of things as you can see in the screenshot.

On the left used sandstone colour paint, however it doesn't match the building. Bottom had a bloke try some sandblasting technique, but I worry it's damaging the brick and very expensive. Right, wife had a go with the power washer, but it was lifting more mortar than paint! I read about scrubbing with trisodium phosphate?

Also any advice on mixing sandstone coloured mortar to match for repairs?

Thanks in advance.

Lytho mix for stone repairs, add dye to match colour.

Lytho mix will be white when you buy it, add the dye powder in very small amounts, ie tea spoon to half a bucket.

Both available from any lime stockist, ie such as Tradlime.

wire brush cups in a drill chuck or angle grinder will take off most of the paint but copper cups are best for not scratcing the stone face.

Didn't we have a similar thread to this where a Needle Gun was used with a successful result?

pproblem is needle guns can caus more damage than sand blasting an you need the gear. rake out to 20mm an use sand an lime to point. dont color it. it will weather to match the stone
