Need help to find right color for brick wall fence and matching color for front gate
April 4, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need some advice on suitable color for my brick wall fence and my gate. The pillar of fence is stonewall grey which I wanted to keep. The brick color in the photo is its natural color. The question now is should I keep the brick wall at its original color or paint it? If paint what color do you recommend? Should I also paint the cement between bricks with some different color? And what color should I paint the gate to match the house and the brick fence. For brick color I'm undecided between i) original brick color with stonewall grey color on cement between brick same as pillar with white gate or ii) paint dark blue on both brick and cement and white gate iii) paint stonewall grey same as pillar and paint cement layers with light grey or iv) paint light grey on brick wall and cement layers and keep gate white. For gate should I use white, silver or brown wood color? Please help...

As a brick manufacturer, we love the look of natural brick and its durability. However, if you do decide to paint the brick, please be prepared for increased maintenance. According to The Brick Industry Association, “Most paint authorities agree that, once painted, exterior masonry will require repainting every three to five years.”
