Choosing brick mortar color
What color mortar did you choose and what was your reasoning behind your selection?
I thought the hardest decision would be choosing the brick color. Boy was I wrong! I never knew how much the mortar color can change the entire look of the house.
I'm debating between gray or a tan/khaki color. We have chosen Old Irvington oversized/tumbled brick from Pine Hall Brick. We will also have Bucks County Southern Ledgestone on two front sections of the house as well (browns & grays). I don't want the mortar to stand out, nor do I want it to be darker than the brick. I really just want it to blend in well with neutral colors of the brick. We will have beige windows and beige trim if that helps.
Here is a sample photo of the brick we have chosen (I'm not sure what mortar color is used here).
Any insight or opinions is appreciated!
