It is really hard to know without seeing the house, and the context in which it is located. I recommend you speak to a design professional in your area to help you make this choice. Good Luck!

This is mostly old Georgia granite. There is a process whereby they "age" newly quarried granite to make it look very much like this.

Thank you! We did salvage all the old brick we could to make sure the front matched. Some new brick was blended into the sides where it is not as visible.

You may want to make a trip to your local brick yard to see if there is something available that works for you.
