Karen began the exciting project of adding a new extension to her property, but she soon came up with a major problem. Her house is constructed of Rookley bricks which were once produced locally on the island but sadly are no longer in production. She painstakingly searched for a match, beginning with as many builders’ merchants and reclamation yards she could find but to no avail. The closest match, in texture, was the London Chiltern brick. Whilst this was virtually identical in texture, the colour was way out. It was predominantly pink instead of a rusty and warm orange.
This is when she contacted Dyebrick. She had looked through hundreds of images on our website and, although there were no similar matches to hers, she rang to see if there was any way we could help. We offered to visit her property as this was not a straightforward tinting match.
Karen was delighted when a special mix was prepared and once applied the predominant pink tones were soon replaced with sympathetic rusty colours to blend seamlessly with the original house.
We would like to thank Karen and her Mother, Barbara for looking after us so well and keeping us well fed and watered!
We are pleased to announce that we have launched a new version of our online shop, powered by our parent company – Owloc Industries.
The new shop features a fresh, new, mobile-friendly design allowing you to order Dyebrick on-the-go!
Please note: All orders made on the old shop will be processed as normal, and all customer accounts have been migrated to the new shop.

Ross has done a fantastic job restoring his old schoolhouse built in 1880, near Canberra, Australia.
Extensions were added in 1988 using multi-tone bricks. Ross used Dyebrick products to blend in all these areas and this has produced a natural, authentic result.
Specialised Silicate Primers, Paints, and Plasters are now available from our Conservation Shop.
