First time poster so thanks in advance for looking at my issue.
I'm building my new home through a well known project builder in Tullimbar NSW, I've finally had a chance to have a look at the final exterior brick work and really not happy with the final "look" compared to the original brick we picked. I've attached some pics for your assessment, but as you can see from the original brick to the final laid brick that has been "cleaned" that most of the face colour has been removed exposing the base brown . Do you think it's the cleaners mistake? you can actually see where the spray jet has cleaned through leaving the base brick exposed. I'm not too sure where i stand in regards to getting this issue resolved (david vs goliath) any feedback is appreciated

I can see acid pitting on your mortar and to me it looks like they used strong acid. White cement sets very hard and if it is left too long it is very hard to clean. Take pic of a display home and post it here. Also get in touch with brick manufacturer and ask if the bricks are liable to acid damage.
