I'm looking at buying a house that has siding on a good portion of the house. The back and sides have the first 4-5 ft in brick and then the rest in siding. The house has VERY nice finish out everywhere else. My problem is that the siding makes the house look lower end than it really is. For reference, the neighbors on each side are probably in the $650k range. Most houses in the neighborhood are stone with stucco - or nice brick. I believe the house was built in 2006. What I'm wondering is how expensive it would be to remove the siding and replace it with brick. Since the house is relatively new, I'm thinking it would be easy to contact the builder and get the same brick. Has anyone done this? What kind of cost am I looking at?
