How to Coordinate Brick and Siding
The use of brick on your homes exterior gives it not only instant curb appeal but a classic look that lasts a lifetime. Your next decision is choosing the right color combinations to go with the brick. Choices will include siding color and roofing color. No matter what color your home features for its brick color you will have several options to look at when it comes to siding choice.
- Exact Color Match – If you want your siding to match as closely as possible to the brick focus on the tones found in the brick.If you have brown brick select a siding that is a chocolate color.
- Tone on Tone – If your brick is grey look for a darker grey color.
- Neutrals – If you want the brick on your home to stand out, pair it with siding in a color that contrasts with the tone of your brick. White siding offers a classic look for your exterior. If you want a warmer look select a cream tone.
- Bold Contrast – A strong contrast will draw attention to the brick and add a pop of color to your home’s exterior. With brown brick you may want to select a blue-grey siding to get the look you are after.
