Builder is looking at getting a company called Nawkaw to paint the problem bricks? Anyone heard of them and had much success?
Painting doesn't solve your problem ? In fact painting the bricks and mortar makes things worse..long term
The mortar joints will need to be scrapped and cleaned to a suitable depth and re-jointed.
I agree with BIMGuy
Painting bricks is a second rate solution to second rate bricklaying and the longevity of paint is in doubt
Face brickwork is for a lifetime. Paint? Just long enough to get past builders warranty period.
