We hope you’re staying safe and as well as possible during this time.
We would like to update you on the latest information regarding our levels of stock and ability to supply.
Although we are running on a reduced workforce, we have a good inventory level and all products listed in our shop are available.
Orders are being picked up daily by Royal Mail, DHL and UPS. We are working closely with them to ensure that there is compliance with government advice and no service interruption.
If, or when there are any changes we will publish updates on this blog page. If there are any changes after an order has been placed, we will contact you directly.
The new rule at most courier services is: The driver only gets 1 delivery attempt. If someone is not present, the order will be returned to the courier depot. It is very busy there, so the packages may return directly to our warehouse. We have no control over this.
When ordering, please consider the following:
– Delivery to a home or business address. If business address, please ensure the business has not been subjected to government closure etc.
– Is someone present all day?
– Be aware of appropriate distance / safety precautions for the driver!
Call the local DHL/UPS yourself for more information. Every day we ensure that the goods are shipped on time from our warehouse and we send you a track and trace number to track the package. From that moment on it is your own responsibility to be able to accept the order and to keep an eye on the delivery date.
Please take care of each other, also of yourself.
The Dyebrick Team
Richard used our Charcoal colour to produce this amazing transformation!
“Just wanted to share my before and afters. Very happy with the results. This was sprayed on.
I used the sprayer that has the reservoir separate from the sprayer so I could keep it agitated as I went.
Afterward we went over with a brush to give it depth.
The bricks have entirely too much texture to brush on which was the original plan. The brush wouldn’t get into the grooves. It looks darker from a distance but up close the orange looks reddish coming through and that’s better than what we were wanting.”
You can see more of Richard’s images on our Customer Gallery page.
Dyebrick products have been used on all phases of the restoration to the Parliamentary Estate.
We had a wonderful day in Westminster. It was nice to have been invited and also to be shown where our products had actually been applied over the last 5 years!
As a ‘Best Practice Representative‘ we have written an article for ‘The Parliamentary Review‘. CLICK HERE to read.

Broadstairs is the perfect place to work and eat!
This red brick was transformed into yellow stock using our Dyebrick ‘Mock-Stock’.
Please contact us for details regarding this special product.
Soot Wash for Brick?
There are a few products coming on the market now claiming to be a soot wash. It is important that you investigate further to verify their true composition prior to considering such products.
Many local authorities specify our brand. We do not make products for anyone else, so if it does not say Dyebrick on the pack, it will not be our ‘Soot Wash Replication’.
For more information about our Soot Wash Replication please see our Soot Wash website or view our video
Dyebrick Soot Wash Replication was specified by Camden Council to blend these old and new extensions with the period terrace.
This customers garage was built using the wrong bricks, they had no yellow patterns on them.
Diana used a blend of our ‘Yellow Stock’ and ‘Lightener’ to produce a perfect match!
Gina who works in our design team enjoyed her spell at Bothwell School of Witchcraft
Soot Wash was used to great effect on this kitchen project!
We will be stopping off at numerous customer locations starting in Chicago on the 5th September. If you’re interested in a visit from the Dyebrick team to take a look at your project, then please email us using the regular Contact Us form. There is only a limited amount of time we can stop off at locations, so book early to avoid disappointment!
It is possible to produce a ‘mock’ London Yellow Stock over dark red bricks!
This process was approved by Hackney Council.
Please contact us if you have a similar problem, as this required a special mix to be matched on site.
Dyebrick were asked to produced some historic natural earth-based oxides, cobalt blues and chrome greens to match historic colours for restoration to decorative art surrounding the windows in the Royal Gallery. The work is being undertaken by DBR Conservation
Dyebrick products have been used throughout the Parliamentary Estate during the last 3 years of restoration.
A great view of the race from Jonathan’s Austin Healey.
There were 36 cars. Our car (the yellow ‘Gurney Special’) a Turner Sports, got pole position and won the race at the last corner as you will see on the clip. It then ended up with fastest lap as well.
All in all a good weekend, except that a faulty radiator cap caused it to start losing water on the 2nd lap. It went over the line with 120 degrees on the clock and no water, but our driver wasn’t going to stop.
The engine is apart now and hopefully it will be back together ready for next Saturday (8th) at Snetterton.
