Project Spotlight

Take a bird’s-eye view at this beautiful “Cavalry Gray” brick home built by Flaherty Builders. 

Make a Statement with Mortar

A great mortar color selection will maximize the overall design appeal of your project. Since mortar occupies near 20% of brick wall area, choosing a color that compliments your brick is important. For example, if your home’s design calls for a clean white facade, pairing a white brick like “Winter Haven” with a white mortar such as “Federal White” will maximize that appearance. By contrast, combining “Everest Gray Tudor” with mortar color “Midnight” will create an unmistakably dark finish. There are also many neutral, tan, and gray mortar colors in between!

General Shale manufactures brick that are meant to be painted, called "Artisans." When painting brick, use a mineral-based paint, such as "Romabio." Keep in mind, however, painting brick will require maintenance versus choosing a brick with a lighter finish.
