I am looking to paint the brick on the lower bottom of the house that is now painted an ugly brown but need help in choosing a color. We are keeping the rest of the colors on the house but hate that brown color. This color will also be painted on the porch floor and maybe the door. 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.”

I'd go with black to match the shutters and knee braces
