How to Match Brick for Repairs and Additions

Matching bricks requires precision and a keen eye for detail. Below are the three key considerations when matching your bricks or sourcing bricks for a repair/addition project.
  1. Size. While brick sizes vary, it is always advisable to source the original brick size to guarantee consistency and a proper visual appeal.
  2. Color. Brick color stems from the raw materials utilized in the brick manufacturing process. Color shade variance isn't a strange concept. Therefore, even if you find the perfect match, providing a precise forecast and timeline is critical to guarantee that your structure comes from the same batch.
  3. Texture. Do your original bricks have a heavy, light, or smooth texture? Brick matching to the original brickwork texture helps maintain a consistent feel and appearance. While your new brickwork may look appealing from a distance, the unmatched texture gradually becomes noticeable the closer you get.
Here is how to match brick with the help of a professional brick matching service expert.  

Find the Brick

Start your brick search as early as possible if you are planning brick repairs or restoration. Starting searching allows you more options and a greater chance to match your bricks by color, size, and texture. Finding out if the original bricks are still in production increases your chances of getting an exact match. If possible, carry a sample that meets all your size, texture, and color specs, then compare it with your existing brickwork. Our brick matching experts in Dallas-Fort Worth can recommend brick suppliers with multiple brick options.  

Blend Two or More Brick Types to Match the Range of the Original Wall

Unfortunately, it isn't always possible for a single brick to provide you with the full-color range to match your original brickwork. The ideal solution in such a case is to blend two or more brick types that function together to give you the desired colored range.

Stain When Necessary to Improve the Brick Match

Despite every possible effort to match your brickwork, it is possible not to find what you seek. Do you consider complex blending too impractical for a specific project? In such an event, experts recommend looking for bricks that match in size and texture and an almost similar color match. An almost similar color match reduces the need for staining. Less staining means reduced costs and an easy color-matching process to improve the chances of an exact match.
