My house is in completion stage and the brickwork (PGH Blue Steel Flash) color is appearing in Brown/Purple tone rather than Blue/Grey tone .
During the brick selection, I've visited few houses in the address list given by PGH for Blue Steel Flash and they were having Blue/Grey as dominant color. So I chosen it.
I am wondering what went wrong in my brickwork? I emailed PGH with the same question but no response from them yet.
The first image is in my neighbor suburb which was built with -Blue Steel Flash - and second image was mine -under construction. Why there is a significant difference with the color tone?

What colour are your windows?
Sometimes it’s the accent colours that change the tone of bricks, they have a large white feature and white windows.
YOu could always take a few of your leftover bricks to PGH and compare to their display

What I have noticed with my bricks (Selkirk Thunderstorm) is that they can look very different in various light. I have also found that my bricks don't photograph very well, they always look more brown.
I agree with gogo65 with comparing a spare brick.

The photo that I posted was taken after it was cleaned. I believe the problem was because either this multi-colored bricks was not blended while laying or some problem with brick itself.
The builder offered to fix it with Nawkaw. And John from Nawkaw did a wonderful job by straining and made the facade to look much better.
I was told Nawkaw guarantee for this metallic strain for 30 years.

I remember when we chose our brick for our last house that we went around the brick centre and I really liked one, but I didn't like the one next to it. They were actually the same brick but they had different colour mortar. It made them look completely different. Maybe you have ended up with a darker colour mortar.

Thanks! Great timing as I just put my request in for the door! We’re having a 120cm pivot but that door is exactly what I’m after.

ah right. Yeah I was assuming the tile one since the OP mentioned it's not solid brick. If it was a proper brick you would be right about the structural value.
