“When we moved into our house as much as we loved the idea of having an open fire, we couldn’t quite get used to how imposing the red brick fireplace was. The house only having been built ten years ago it didn’t have any charm to the brickwork, in fact it looked more like an outside wall and the size of it meant that you couldn’t not look at it!
I contemplated various ideas to change it and am so glad I came across Dyebrick as the end result is just fantastic, you truly cannot tell that it was ever red brick and people are amazed when I tell them it’s not real Cotswold stone. It was a bit of a labour of love, with each brick having several treatments to give it an authentic look but SO worth it! It is now a beautiful feature not an eyesore and the whole room looks lighter and larger now.
The team at Dyebrick were so helpful, recommending different colour finishes and telling me how to apply them to get the desired effect at various stages throughout the job.
Karen Bramall, Romsey, Hants.”

“Residents who have expressed concerns about the appearance of a new school wall in Putney will have spotted that action has now been taken to make the wall blend into its surroundings more easily.”
Dyebrick products were chosen to ‘age’ the new wall to produce a more sympathetic appearance more suited to the surrounding period properties.
Dale Dempsey, who has been tinting bricks for over 30 years, carried out the work on behalf of Wandsworth Council. The process is known as Soot Washing, (or ‘sooting’).
Dyebrick have two products for this ageing process, one called ‘Soot Wash’ and a less intense product called ‘Brick-Age’. It was the Brick-Age product that was used for this project.
Although the majority of this work was carried out a few months ago, the finishing touches are being carried out this week.
Fantastic results can be achieved with Dyebrick Brick Stain Kits… all you need is artistic flair……and a little patience!

The old Horton Kirby paper mill chimney in Dartford Kent was refurbished by Churchill Steeplejacks as part of a new residential development by Fairview Homes.
The brick chimney standing at 75m tall was also slightly reduced in height by a Churchills. Once the chimney had been reduced to the required height the summit was be capped off, and a new lightning protection system was installed.
Dyebrick ‘Brick-Age’ was used for some of the new brick-up areas at the base and ‘Charcoal’ and ‘Khaki’ Brick Tinting Kits were used for tinting the old crack repair.
