Sandblasting is not an easy process, but Paintastic Art can get it done for you. We Recommend trying other methods prior to sandblasting to clean your masonry. Sandblasting is usually used to remove paint and coatings off of masonry walls like brick, block or stone. It is a very dangerous process and produces a lot of debris.

Sand like particles are projected using air at high pressure. The particles move at such a high rate of speed that once they hit the masonry will rip off the operly paint and coatings. The particles used can be corn cob, baking soda walnut shells glass and more.

We will help you determine the right aggregate to use. Permits for this type of work are usually required and Sandblasting does pose health hazards that must be addressed prior to the start of any project.

If you are looking for a sandblasting contractor in the Chicago-land area then trust Paintastic Art to get the job done for you. One of the services is sandblasting. We can explain the process to the customer and let them what to expect during the process and after. We typically recommend tuckpointing the wall after sandblasting, whether it is brick, block or stone. Sandblasting not only removes the paint and coating off the wall, but opens up the masonry joints, which then would need to be tuckpointed to seal them and make the wall water tight.

There is always the chance that the buildign will need to be sealed after the sandblasting is complete. This again is to ensure the building is water tight. Sandblasting brick, block or stone, may also damage the face of the masonry unit. This all depends on the condition of the brick prior to the sandblasting being performed and how hard the masonry units are.
