1. The Benefits of Brick House
The first thing to talk about here is about brick as the material of the house. Generally speaking, we can say that brick is a home exterior material that offers tons of benefits. Strength and durability are the most popular ones.
Other than those, brick is also an excellent exterior material to select because it is quite easy to maintain. You do not need to do the maintenance quite often, only once every several years.
The cleaning of the brick exterior is also quite easy to do. You only need to squirt it with water from a hose.
Brick is also an excellent material for controlling the temperature inside the house. When the weather outside is hot, such as when it is the summer season, the brick will help to prevent the heat from passing through the wall easily. As a result, the interior is cooler.
On the other hand, when the weather is cold, the heat will not easily go out of the house. In other words, the interior can stay warmer longer. This benefit, including the previous one, can cut your energy bill since you do not need much artificial cooling and heating in the interior.
Brick is also a good material because it can block noise. Other than that, it is resistant to fire too.
The last but not least benefit of brick as a home exterior material is that it can increase the house’s selling value, especially if the brickwork is of high quality. This benefit is something that you cannot separate from the fact that it can cut the energy bill.
Many people are interested in buying a brick house because of this reason. So, although the building cost of a brick house can be more expensive about the fact that other materials are needed in the installation and the longer time to finish the work, everything will be paid off.
2. The Benefits of Metal Roof
As a part of the combination that we talk about here, a metal roof also has some benefits that you must know. The popular plus points are in the longevity and durability.
Metal roofing also contains a safety value. It is something that you cannot separate from the fact that it will not spark in fire or lightning strike.
Interestingly, a metal roof also has an energy-efficient value. The further explanation is that it can reflect the radiant sun heat so that the interior under it becomes cooler, and you can definitely cur the cooling bill cost because of this.
Lastly, you must know that a metal roof is environmental-friendly because most of it is made from recycled material. Other than that, when no longer used, it is also recyclable.
Just like brick, the metal roof is also considered as a not-cheap roofing material. Besides, it is also not resistant to noise.
Like any other metal, this roof type can expand and contract too so that you can face some problems later. That is why a professional installer is necessary to install it properly.
3. Brick House and Metal Roof Combination
Now that you already know about the benefits of the brick and metal roof as exterior materials, it is the time to understand what you will get when the two of them are combined in your home design. The sure thing both of them will last longer so that you do not need to worry about replacement.
Although a metal roof is not resistant to noise, it will never be a problem because the brick material can reduce the effect. For an even better soundproof, you can include quality insulation in the roofing design, but this may lead to a higher cost.
Another thing you must consider more since the very beginning is the fact that you will need more money to build a brick house that also has a metal roof. Although so, as we mentioned earlier, the high price is an investment that is worth-paying compared to all the benefits you will obtain.
4. Cream White Brick House with Charcoal Metal Roof
The first idea that we found is this transitional exterior. In the design, the brick material is painted in cream color, but no information is available about the coloring brand.
As for the metal roof used here, it is the one that has charcoal color, which is perfect for a large house. FYI, each manufacturer has different names for the metal roof colors that they produce. In this post, we will use common color names to make everything more understandable.
Cream brick color like this shows a classic look. However, when pair with a dark-colored roof, the view becomes different. The combo, somehow, also indicates elegance.
Generally, the combination in this exterior looks bold. This impression gets stronger because of the black doors and windows frames.
The sure thing is that the pairing between the cream brick house and charcoal metal roof creates a timeless appearance in the exterior. Supported by the yellow lighting option, the combo even look inviting.
5. Multi-Tones Brick Lake House with White Metal Roof
Here is another stunning example that we found. It is none other but a lake house that uses multi-color brick and white metal roof materials.
The first thing that we love about this exterior design is none other but the brick wall, patio, and columns. Although it has multi-colors, the most dominant tone is orange.
It creates a refreshing impression on the design. Besides, it also looks compatible with the tan tile floor.
Another amazing detail from this exterior design is, of course, the white metal roof. It is the one that adds prominence so that the house is more visible in the environment.
Lastly, we like the use of black metal beams and frames. The addition of dark shade like this in a bright-colored exterior design is beneficial in adding boldness and contrast.
6. American Traditional Whitewashed Brick House with White Metal Roof
Whitewashed brick exterior always looks pretty. That is why we show you one in this example.
As you can see in the picture, the American house looks beautiful with the textured, whitewashed appearance. The look matches the traditional style of the home excellently.
You must pay attention to the white metal roof used in the exterior design is another interesting detail. It actually looks quite simple, but it can match the high design of the house so perfectly.
7. Metal Porch Roof in an American Traditional Red Brick House
From this American traditional home design, there is an interesting thing we know. It is the fact that metal roofing is not always used to cover all the house roof.
As shown in the picture, the metal roof only appears as the cover of the porch area. FYI, an idea like this is used in many houses. While the porch area is covered with metal material, the rest of the house uses a different roofing type, such as shingles or something else.
Because of the benefits offered, the idea is often used in home renovation too. Some values that people love the most from the renovation idea are the beautiful appearance and the low maintenance of the metal roof.
You must remember that the metal porch roof must have a coordinating color with the tone of the house’s main roofing. For instance, the traditional house above has a dark blue metal roof to match the dark blue shingles.
This color also goes well with the red brick color. Together they create a gorgeous classic look.
8. An Industrial Terrace with Brick Wall and Corrugated Metal Roof
If you are interested in creating an industrial look, we suggest you choose a type of metal roof. It is none other but the one with corrugated style.
However, you must know that this material is not the same as other regular metal roof types. Mostly it is not galvanized so that it may lead to rust problems. Other than that, this roof type is also prone to denting.
We suggest using this metal roof type only on some parts of the brick house because of those problems. The most common examples are patio, deck, and terrace.
9. A Rustic Red Brick Stable House with Grey Metal Roof Shingles
This long stable house looks stunning with its rustic style that is shown clearly through the brick material. It often leads to the wrong impression that people often think about this house. The fact is that when you enter it, you will see a rustic contemporary design combination with white domination that creates a stunning view.
Let us go back to the brick exterior design. It gets a rather different type of metal roof than the ones we talked about earlier. Here, the roofing is metal shingles in grey.
This roof type does not only give the benefits of metal material for roofing to the house. It also provides a highly beautiful appearance, which enhances the look of the home from outside.
10. Stunning Transitional Orange Brick House with Charcoal Metal Roof
In combining a brick exterior wall and metal roof, you can include some other materials to create a more stunning look if you want to. The picture above contains an excellent example.
This exterior uses orange brick material for the wall. This is not the only material here because there are also tan tiles used in the facade’s center position. It is the same material used for the chimneys.
The use of the two materials here and the design used by the designer seems to create a collision of two styles in one, which is traditional and modern. The final style resulted is transitional.
As for the metal roof used here, it has charcoal color. It becomes a good match for the dark-colored minimalist frames for the glass windows and doors.
11. White Brick House with Black Metal Roof
The brick wall and metal roof combination is the one used quite a lot in the transitional exterior. The picture that you see here is another example.
As you can see, this house is dominated by the off-white color of the brick. This tone came from coloring processing, but we do not know what product was used here.
Besides the brick’s off-white color, everything else in the design is quite similar to the one we talked about in the previous subheading. Somehow, the classic-modern impression is stronger here. Thanks to the classic pairing between the white brick and black metal roof, that creates such a look.
12. Grey Brick House with Bronze Metal Roof
The exterior of this transitional house is just attractive. Either the roof and wall design uses more than only one material. Generally, we can say that the whole design is monotonous because the most dominant color used, except for the garage doors, is grey.
Let us talk about the wall first. The more prominent material we can see in it is the grey brick. It seems that it gains the grey color from a painting process. However, it still possible for it to be originally grey bricks instead.
Another material used for the wall is the grey stucco. The color has a high resemblance to the brick’s color, so both of them look good together.
In the roof design, the grey metal exists in some front part of the house only. The rest of the roofing uses other material, which seems to be grey shingles.
How can a monotonous exterior look so amazing?
13. Brick House with Solar Metal Roof
Right now, there is an interesting type of metal roof that you can get. The thing that we meant here is none other but the solar metal roof.
Like any other solar roofing, this one can also convert sunlight into electricity and reduce energy bills. Something like this is not only beneficial for the homeowners but also the environment.
The roof of the brick house that you see in the picture above is made from thin-film material. The best thing about it is not only about the aesthetic appearance but also about its lightweight and flexible value.
14. Brick House with Box Bay Window with Metal Roof
Another part of a brick house that you can pair with a metal roof is a box bay window. If you are not familiar with the name, you can see the one in the picture as an example.
For this type of window, you need to know that several roof types are chosen more often. One of them is metal.
Many people love metal roofs for their box bay windows is not merely about the unique look that can often accentuate the brick house. It is also because the metal roof is durable and long-lasting.
15. Whitewashed Brick House with Bronze Metal Roof
The picture above shows a type of metal roof that we love quite the most. It comes with bronze color.
The appearance somehow shows a classic or even a vintage look. Although so, it does not mean that you cannot include it in more modern exterior styles.
The house above is an example. It uses a contemporary design that focuses on the beauty of the design in simplicity.
About the pairing between it and the brick material, the thing you must know is that the wall got a whitewash treatment that contributed to the final look. The brick material’s original look is still visible, and it looks compatible with the bronze roof.
Brick house with metal roof combination is quite interesting, right? By choosing it, we will not obtain the unique look only but also all other benefits offered by metal roofing. It is a good thing to consider.
It gets even more interesting because the design possibilities are endless in this combo. The metal roof is now available in so many color options to match the brick’s natural color.
If you do not like the original brick tone, you can still consider many coloring techniques. Some that you can find in the examples above are painting and whitewashing methods.
