Once brickwork is cured and ready for paint, wash the surface with muriatic acid to help open the pores on the brick. Then prime the shingles with Benjamin Moore Fresh Start Primer using a roller instead of a brush.
Use the roller to saturate the surface with paint and back-roll to take off excess material, being mindful to fill any pin holes that may appear. After the recommended dry time, roll two coats of Regal Select Exterior High Build in a low-luster finish for a smooth sheen that will protect against harsh weather conditions.
