How do I select the right brick? In addition to visiting our Brick Selector page, the following steps will help you narrow your choices and make the selection process easier.

Review sample boards - Most builders have sample boards of the brick blends they offer. Reviewing these boards is a convenient way to eliminate the styles you don’t like and narrow your choices to a few favorites.

Look at photographs - In addition to sample boards, many builders provide photos of their brick selections on existing homes. These pictures will show you how the color distribution of each blend will affect a home’s overall appearance.

Visit homes - There’s no better way to make a final decision than to see your favorite brick blend on a home’s exterior. If you have the opportunity to see an actual home, make sure you look at it in several different conditions – sunlight, shade and rain can all affect a brick’s appearance. Finally, make sure to take a close look at the mortar and trim colors. Although subtle, these details can make a big difference in how your favorite brick will appear on your home.
