Removing siding


I'm looking to remove some siding from the house. It had this siding when I moved in and there is red brick underneath. Do you guys think the brick will be okay after having siding installed? Is it as simple as just removing the siding and cleaning up the brick?

No way to tell from that picture.
What kind of siding is it?

I feel it would not be in your best interest to ever try and remove that siding. If it really is brick under it then to have installed that type siding they had to attach some form or wood to the walls to be able to attach the siding. Once the siding removed the brick is going to be covered with pot marks from all the nails or screws coming out.
What worng with what's on there now?

Damn. Its too much needs to be broken up color wise. Hard to tell in that pic because of the trees but they didn't leave much contrast or variation of color

It can be painted, the fasha and soffet vent colors can be changed.

The only reason to cover brick in the first place is the brick was in very bad shape.

That said, if you can take off a small area to see how they installed there furring strips would help.

If the furring strips are attached into the mortar joints and not the face of the brick it might be ok, if the face of the brick was used you will probably end up with many chipped bricks.

Thanks. I'll try and take a look once. Hopefully it's okay. The blue and brick would look nice together
