Create rustic charm with new white brick

‘Rustic chic’ style blends authentic, natural materials with crisp, simple palettes. And, our white brick products deliver both of these elements – combining the classic character of brick with fresh, clean tones. So, you don’t need to buy an older home to live out our your rustic-filled life. Plus choosing to build new with brick delivers the amazing benefits of a masonry home, including low maintenance, higher resale value and better safety.

Our newest farmhouse #whitebrick products

Last year, we introduced two white-colored brick products that are incredibly popular. We’re excited to share some new farmhouse-style homes that feature these beautiful brick products. Grand Bay features a rugged finish with hints of the red body underneath; Winterhaven, as the name suggests, features a more solid, ‘snowy-white’ coating and a straight edge for a slightly cleaner look.

Our character-rich Tudor brick products are a popular choice for a rustic-style home. These beautiful brick options still deliver a white look, but with more distressing.
