Hotham School Wall – Soot Washing

Hotham School Wall Soot Wash

Hotham School Wall Soot Washing

“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.

Dyebrick used to camouflage crack repair!

Dyebrick was used to great effect when a solution was required to disguise some obvious repair work that could be seen for miles!

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.

Dyebrick on TV

Dyebrick came to the rescue when celebrity builder Tommy Walsh and his sidekick Liam Collins were having difficulty searching for bricks of a particular colour for a new television programme.

Brick Tinting on TV

Dyebrick were approached by one of the UK’s leading independent television production companies, Flame TV, to supply and offer advice in respect to changing the brick colour to save money for a particular project in a renovation programme based on reclaimed and salvaged materials.
‘Tommy’s Fix Your House for Free?’ due to be aired on the Discovery Channel Realtime will be hosted by Tommy Walsh, Britain’s best loved builder and his sidekick Liam Collins. Liam is an expert in reclamation and sourcing of surplus and discarded building materials and is often found rummaging through skips and demolition sites ~ with the owners permission of course!
Dyebrick were able to fit the remit of the programme by allowing Tommy and Liam to choose the cheapest available bricks and then colour them to match the existing brickwork.
During the programme Tommy and Liam help a woman save £5,500 by reclaiming materials that would otherwise be discarded and by using Dyebrick they were able to make a further saving of £500. The bricks were changed from red to yellow using two Brick Tinting Kits.
