Reclaimed brick, often referred to as salvaged or recycled brick, is obtained from aged buildings or structures that are undergoing demolition or renovation.

These bricks carry a unique charm and history that new bricks simply can't replicate.

They are sturdy and can endure weather like Minnesotas harsh winters.

#2 Brick Style - Painted Brick

Painted brick is exactly what it sounds like: brick that has been painted.

It offers an easy way to change the look and feel of a home without undertaking a complete renovation, and instead bringing new life to the brick.

A well-maintained painted brick exterior can increase your home's value.

Painting bricks can create a more cohesive look to the exterior of your home.

The only problem with painted bricks is that they can chip or fade over time.

#3 Brick Style - Brick Veneer

Despite what its name suggests, it's not composed of whole bricks.

It is actually thin cuts of a brick layer to simulate the look of sturdy brick walls.

The veneer comes in a variety of colors and styles, offering a wide range of design possibilities.

Brick veneer is relatively low maintenance.

It doesn't require painting or sealing, and it's resistant to pests, rot, and fire.

#4 Brick Style - Glazed Brick

For glazed brick, all you do is apply a layer of glossy coating to the brick.

This glaze can come in a variety of colors, ranging from traditional shades like white or cream to more vibrant hues like blues, greens, or even purples as seen in the image above.

The glazing process makes the bricks more resistant to weather and wear, ensuring the colors stay vibrant for longer.

Since glazed bricks aren't as widespread as regular bricks, they can really make a house pop in a neighborhood.

#5 Brick Style - Herringbone Patterned Brick

Named for its resemblance to the skeleton of a herring fish, this pattern is shown by a series of 'V' shapes or zigzags.

This pattern is often used for pathways, patios, or feature walls but can also be applied to a home's exterior for a unique, high-end look.

The Herringbone pattern has a high-end look that can increase the perceived value of your home.

It shows high attention to detail and high quality.

It's a distinctive choice that can give your home a unique and attractive look.


Whether you lean toward the vintage allure of reclaimed bricks, the artistic flair of painted bricks, the convenience of brick veneer, the vibrancy of glazed bricks, or the intricate elegance of the Herringbone pattern, there's a brick style out there to fit your unique vision.
