House color ideas

We are having dryvit removed and want to figure out if I should add cedar shakes or siding back in the place. My other question is what color should I paint brick and siding?

The house looks great as it is! If I may ask, how many sq ft is the house and how many levels? Also do you know the frontage of the house as well?

Problem is we need to remove dryvit because they hold moisture

Your brick seems a lovely color. Why do you want to paint it. What is dryvit?

Dryvit is a fake stucco, so all the yellow part. Hard to tell in picture but brick is pretty pink.

Do other people in your area not like that color of brick? It's a big job to paint brick and also a big job to maintain it once it is painted. If a lot of people in your area like that color of brick, I'd leave it alone and either learn to live with it. I personally find your brick color to be lovely.

Are you adding real stucco instead? If so, I think I would go just a bit darker than you are currently using while maintaining the same base tone of the brick. I think the contrast is good.

nice warm tannish less yellow tone. Then use the dark grayish tones for accents

Love gray but have to find right tone with brown roof . Have white windows and don't want to paint them dark because I have white grates inside windows
