Brick Match Challenge


Anyone recognize this brick product/texture?

Before paint, it was white. We're trying to match it for an addition.

Re: Brick Match Challenge


Donít even waste your time you will not match that texture

After the last housing recession crash a lot of the smaller brick manufacturers went out of business and there are only a handful left that make brick, I am in and out of the Brickyards a couple times a week and havent seen anything like that

That style is definitely out of date

Re: Brick Match Challenge


You have to admit that it looks pretty cool for being out of date.

Re: Brick Match Challenge


For sure. Probably 70's. I'm a big fan of late 60's early 70's style.

I'd love to have that out of date style on my house.

Before & After.

I've worked on this house for over 15 years now in 6 or 7 major phases.

This next phase is a sunroom addition.

Re: Brick Match Challenge


Definitely not typical 70's. When was it built?

Re: Brick Match Challenge


No help on the brick Chris...

But I worked on a site that we had to salvage all the demo brick for reuse for window in filling and such... at huge expense.

The end product looked great, you could not spot where the old windows were, the Mason did a wonderful job.

HO decided she did not like the look...

The stucco contractor busted the face off of every brick for bonding issues.

The stucco looked great! Well, at least she liked it. Everyone got paid.

Late 80s I believe.
