Sealing masonry and brickwork both in- and outside of your home is a vital part of protecting it against the elements and ensuring greater durability against wear and tear. We’ve partnered with top manufacturers to offer homeowners high-quality brick sealant that is easy to apply and offers long-lasting protection from water ingress and damp.
Masonry sealant works by soaking into the microscoping pores across the surface of bricks, then sealing and protecting the brickwork from within. This offers long-term protection against water penetration and damage, while still allowing moisture to escape from within the home. Thanks to its “dry finish” formulation, this brick sealant can be applied without affecting the aesthetics of your home.
Benefits of Brick Sealant
Moisture penetration is one of the most common causes of issues with brickwork, such as spalling or flaking bricks. Water ingress can be an issue in properties of any age, so even if your home is a new build it’s still crucial to use a masonry sealant to protect it against the elements. Most commonly however, it is due to older bricks becoming more porous with age.
If you’re experiencing problems with water penetration into your home’s bricks, this can be easy to identify. Look out for damp patches on internal walls, flaky paint or peeling wallpaper as well as a noticeably musty or damp spell indoors. Our brick sealant is designed to combat moisture penetration and prevent further damage from occurring. By sealing the pores off from the outside, your bricks will be well-protected against the elements.
Easy to Apply
All our sealant products have been specially designed to be simple to use, even for homeowners doing a bit of DIY – and our brick sealant is no exception. Simply use a paintbrush, garden sprayer or roller on interior or exterior walls. Be sure to wear any appropriate safety equipment such as a mask, goggles and gloves, and only apply brick sealant to a wall that has already been cleaned of any dirt, moss or algae.
When properly applied and given time to truly seep into the deepest pores of your masonry, our brick sealant offers a lifespan of over five years. Thereafter, it should only require another light coat of brick sealant to maintain the excellent level of protection and keep your brickwork in optimal condition.
As dry walls transfer heat much more slowly than damp or wet walls, properly sealed brickwork can make a substantial contribution to the ambient temperature and comfort inside the home. When combined with insulation, effectively sealed masonry can make a substantial contribution to insulation and a reduction in your energy bills.

Common Questions About Brick Sealers
How Do You Apply Brick Sealant?
If you’re using a garden sprayer, start by applying a light coat followed by a heavier coat to finish. This will allow the product to attach most strongly to the surface of the masonry. Another benefit of this method is that it avoids inconsistent coverage, as well as unsightly dripping or waste. Your brickwork will become water resistant within 24 hours and achieve maximum protection after 7 days.
Although you can apply this sealant to your brickwork at any time during the year, you should use your judgement and assess whether the product could realistically dry that day. Therefore, avoid days when it is especially windy, raining or the temperature is below 10°C.
