A HUGE Before & After Decision

 
Not everyone likes a painted brick home.  It's a big decision that
can't be taken lightly.  If you're on the fence, today's collection of
Before and After photos might persuade you to love painted brick :

In the case of the house below, a brick repair job to the front right of
the house many years ago still shows.  Painting the brick successfully
camouflages the repair:

Pretty Old Houses
The contractor's license box is still in the front
yard but the progress so far is stunning.





Your eyes aren't deceiving you - these two photos are of the same house:

A large dormer was added to this house
which completely changed its appearance:

In addition to being painted this house also had other
renovations.  They did an amazing job, didn't they?




The top photo reminds me of a college sorority
house but the bottom photo is more stately.

Looks like a completely different house, doesn't it?




The new front porch and paint dramatically
change the character of this house:

 Is it my imagination or do houses that have siding and brick look
bigger when the brick and siding are painted the same color?

Before committing to the idea why not do a virtual
image of what your house would look like if it were painted:

A graphic artist should be able to show you a very realistic image of what
your house would like like with a few computer generated modifications.

 To paint brick?  It's a hard decision.

  1. I think they definitely look better painted where there have been repairs or alterations, and I also think the house with the brick at the lower level looked better when it was all painted. I think a lot of it depends on the look of the brick, some are quite ugly, but others it would be a crime to paint over.

  2. I think it depends on the house, but I would love to paint our brick house. But then I would have to worry about maintaining it.

  3. We have always thought that one of the advantages of brick would be not having to worry about painting it!:-)

  4. It would be soooo hard to decide to paint, but I think everyone of the houses in your pics above look so much better after they were painted. Wonder how long the paint would last!

  7. Love the look of the painted brick, not a fan of red bricks on houses. When we were applying to build our house here in Ireland the first planning condition was "no red brick"!
