Residential Brick

Refreshing Homes

A house is not a home unless you make it one. Let Nawkaw help you feel more comfortable by changing the exterior of your home to match your vision. Our Certified Stain Applicators can change the whole feel of a house by changing the looks of its exterior. The examples below will display the immense difference color can make!

Project: Residential Color Change

Location: Chicago, Illinois

Blending in new additions, correcting color errors, or even restoring historic masonry structures are challenges easily addressed by Nawkaw without replacing existing brick. With unlimited color choices, both brick and mortar can be stained to match existing surfaces. And Nawkaw’s products carry an industry-leading warranty against peeling, chipping, or fading.

This residential property in the Chicago Metropolitan Area required a complete color change. After power washing, Nawkaw Certified Stain Applicators created a natural range of color.


The original brick was a little too dark, so the owners wanted to change it up. Nawkaw’s Certified Stain Applicators power-washed the house before applying its proprietary stain to the existing brick. 


Multiple shades of NawTone were used to create the natural range of lighter colors. The property was left with a  distinguished finish.

Project: Papcor, Arlington Heights Apartment Complex

Location: Arlington Heights, Illinois

Sometimes, all an older building needs is a color makeover, which is exactly what was brought to the Arlington Heights apartment building. Our Certified Stain Applicators provided a complete color change using NawTone, resulting in a natural range of color and boosting property values. 


These condos had this light brick for years, and it needed an updated look on the entire exterior. 


A darker reddish brick stain made this apartment complex pop! The updated color scheme added a fresh new look while raising the value of the condos.

Project: Rochester Circle

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The property owners of this building had a different color in mind for the exterior of their home. Because of the red/beige brick, the home itself appeared dated. With a modern dark gray tone, the house’s curb appeal was strongly enhanced.
