What are the differences in types of brick and how do I chose between them?

The basic variables of brick are texture, color, and finish. These variables can be combined to create thousands of different looks. Most people find it helpful to look at other houses either in person or over the internet to narrow down their personal preferences and select a style that reflects their personality and taste.  Our service representatives will help guide you in the process.
