Need to paint house one color: 2 components are brick,aluminum
First thing: we've lived here almost three years now, and I have concluded over and over that I hate our brick. While it might look OK from far away, from a couple of feet away one can see that the bricks are basically rough concrete, like cinder blocks but smaller. I want to get rid of them---i.e., cover them with paint.
my chief concern is that the aluminum siding and the brick wil take paint differently and clash over time. (I've seen this on a couple of houses in my area.)
The trick is, I need new gutters NOW, but can't really hire a painter until next summer. So my gutter choice is intimately related to my paint choices for brick and siding...
Anyhow, here's our house. Again, for the brick purists, I promise you this is hideous brick when one is even just a bit closer.
(Please, pretty please, overlook the gardening disasters!)
