How to Match Your Brick and Siding

When remodeling the exterior of your home, you don’t have to stick with just one color, material, or pattern. There are many houses that pull off brick and siding seamlessly. Before you go ahead and do the same, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

Color of the Brick
Some people will think of brick and have one single color that comes to mind. However, there are many different colors, hues, and undertones with each style of brick. Certain styles of brick might be red with a brown undertone, and others might be a darker red with a purple undertone. When you’re deciding on which of these colors to choose for your brick and siding, keep in mind the undertone colors and try to compliment that with your siding choice.

Color of the Accents
So you have your ideal colors picked out for your brick and siding, but do they match everything else on your home? Would those colors match the window trim, pillars, roofing materials, etc? It’s true that you can customize these other things to match your new brick and siding, but you should absolutely pick colors that compliment your current or future roof (if you’re thinking of replacing it in the near future).

Example of Color Combinations
Yes, there are many different hues and undertones when it comes to brick, but there are a few color combinations that can go well with many different styles of brick.

  • Yellow & Cream
  • Charcoal & Light Gray
  • Rich Green & Gray
  • Cool Gray & Cool Green
  • Forest Green & Black
