    Default Exterior Brick Help Needed

    I just bought a house and it has been remodeled inside and it is amazing; however, they left alot to be desired on the exterior. I need ideas on how I can address doors and windows that look like they were just boarded off and painted brown on the exterior of my red brick house.

    I would like to keep the brick and not paint it if at all possible.

    we can't give you a bit of advice without seeing what you're talking about. can you post some pictures or a link to some pictures?

    Better yet: designers and architects will be better sources for choosing exterior finishes.

    i am sorry but you don't need an architect to tell you you need a good mason to find matching brick and patch in the areas with matching mortar it is very simple. the other otion is to fill in the areas with matching brick but set the new brick in slichtly so it leaves an obvios shadow of the old window or door. it is your choice as to weather or not you want to leave evidence of the repair
