Many Montgomery Village homes feature brick in their design, whether on the house itself, or as part of a courtyard wall. Over time, brick can be damaged and may need to be replaced in part or in full. Unfortunately, much of the brick used to build homes in Montgomery Village is no longer readily available, but the Architectural Standards Department is here to help. If you need to replace your brick, submit an application at www.montgomeryvillage.com/pir and we will help you find a brick replacement that closely matches your original brick and is available nearby.
There are many different brick looks in the market place, and the goal is to find a brick replacement resource that blends well and is harmonious with the original brick used to build your home in Montgomery Village. In Montgomery Village, homeowners planning to use alternative brick replacement resources are required to apply for written approval before the alternative brick resources can be used.
If you are unsure of the brick used to build your home or courtyard wall, please contact Architectural Standards and we can help you identify the brick on your home and let you know if it is still available.
When you submit an application for your brick replacement, please be sure to include the following:
- PIR form completed and signed by the homeowner, available online at www.montgomeryvillage.com/pir or by visiting the MVF Office and picking up a hard copy.
- A location showing where the brick will be repaired and/or replaced.
- Details about how much brick will be replaced. For example, will you just be replacing a portion of the brick courtyard wall or the entire thing?
- The name of the proposed brick replacement, if you’ve identified one, or an indication that you need assistance selecting a replacement. A sample of the brick being used, if identified, is always helpful.
Please remember to submit your completed application to the Architectural Review Board before purchasing replacement materials. Applications are reviewed by staff on a weekly basis. If you have any questions, please contact the Montgomery Village Foundation Architectural Standards Department at 301-948-0110.
