comment What methods can I use to remove exterior paint from brick?
Original within reason. I love the old red brick; ive also been thinking about staining the brick a darker red, but i need to address this issue first. But thats about as crazy as i want to get with the exterior. Im kinda wary about contacting the Historical Society. It seems like some of these societies get all up in your business about what you can and cant do to your house. Having strangers tell me what i can and cant do with my property doesnt sit well with me, even if its to preserve the historical context of a neighbourhood.

I did a few brick on the side of the house with a bit of success, though the paint didn't come completely off. Now it looks like the paint had worn off a few decades ago. I having the 'weathered' look is a much better option than painted brick. It kills me to see beautiful red brick homes desecrated like this....:(

I was specifically looking for a red brick historical home. When i found the one i eventually purchased i figured that removing exterior paint wouldnt be such a difficult undertaking.

i think it was painted only about a year ago. I was thinking that may a combination of a applying paint stripper along with using a power washer(i have one available to me) would be more effective than doing it by hand.
