Just wanted to send pics of our before and after.
Bought home, but hated brick color.
We used Charcoal, diluted twice.
We love it.
Here is the before and after..... Brick was kind of muddy yellowish clay color kind of drab and Icky but thanks to Dyebrick now it looks rich and natural slightly reddish variegated brown brick color and it made the mortar stand out beautifully as you can see: it is a superb product, we highly recommend it, my wife did it herself it was easy if you are patient and good with detail. Note we also repainted the woodstove and that really helped.
God save the Queen!
I'd never heard of staining bricks before. Googling it, I found a few companies in Australia that provide a professional service but will not sell the materials for DIY, and eventually I came across Dyebrick's UK web site, which offered DIY kits, a very flexible product, sample pots, advice, made it look easy, and offered no fuss worldwide delivery.
I emailed Dyebrick for advice on how I might stain all the bricks to match the darkest brown bricks in the wall. That more or less summarises my expectations at that time.
Dyebrick soon replied suggesting a mix of two of their colours, which opened up more options for me that I had not considered and raised my expectations. I decided to try to match the bluestone in the 1880 walls instead. I ordered a selection of sample pots (charcoal, yellow stock, old english red for another project and the lightener) via the free delivery option expecting to see them in several weeks. I was therefore very pleasantly surprised to see them arrive after just 5 days. If this was typical it would fit perfectly with my schedule of working on the project over weekends only....

...So, I started with changing the brick. There are only a few options when it comes to changing bricks. You can rock over them. Pricey. You can remove and replace them with new bricks. Pricey. You can paint them. Ugly. Or, you can stain them. Never heard of that? Neither had I! But I thought about it one day last year and decided it would be a great way to change the brick color if I could find a brick stain. Well, I did some research (thank you the internet) and found a company in England that makes a stain specifically for brick! How lucky is that!? So, I ordered some Dyebrick samples...

The bricks on our new extension had too many dark blueish bricks. Dyebrick helped us choose the best warm-red orange colour to blend our extension in perfectly! We used 3 Tinting Kits for our project, amazing results for under £150!
Author: Jenny Long: Kansas, USA.
I ordered the supplies from Dyebrick. After looking at their color panels we decided we would try staining our brick Rustic Brown. Starting out we ordered a Sample Pot which is roughly $11.00 plus shipping. Once the sample pot arrived and we tried it out in an conspicuous area we were ready to order enough for the front of our house. We then ordered the Brick Tinting Kit which is around $55.00 plus shipping. With no dilution the Brick Tinting Kit is 20fl.oz which can cover 162.5 sq.ft.
We ordered 2 and had some stain leftover. It took us around 15 hours to do the front of the house. If you have someone helping you, the time could be cut almost in half. It does take some time since you must stain one brick at a time. The stain is permanent and is guaranteed to last a lifetime so it is definitely worth your time. We are 100% satisfied!
“DyeBrick is just awesome! I have shown the photographs to my friends and family and they cannot believe the difference it has made to the appearance of the property! Excellent and very highly recommended. Thank you again, Dyebrick”. – Mr Paul Sypko, Buckinghamshire.
My husband and I bought our house because of the potential and great price. We didn't like the look of the out-dated blonde brick facing, but as newlyweds, the rest of the house was perfect for the price. When we decided to stain the brick, people thought it would be hard and look cheap. Finding DyeBrick, however, gave us a beautiful finish in just a weekend. The application was easy and the result was natural-looking red brick. For this project, we used Old English Red with the original dilution and 2x dilution to get a variation in the finished color.
Thanks for providing such a great product and improving the look of our house!

“A huge thank you to the Dyebrick team for all of your help and advice! Our new wall that was proving to be a bit of an eyesore now blends in seamlessly with its surroundings and looks like it has been in place for years! A fantastic product that has surpassed our expectations, made even better by the fact that even amateurs such as myself can achieve the results seen.”
Dear Dyebrick, Thank you for your assistance in our choice of colour, your Brick-Age was perfect!
Author: Ginnie Wade: Michigan, USA
"In our old house we came to the point where we needed a new roof and new t-1-11 or siding. We really hated our brick color though and didn't want to try to match up siding and roof colors to the hideous brick. There aren't a lot of cheap options though: rebrick (not in our budget), paint it (in our budget but I think it doesn't look good and that is just my personal humble opinion) So I started doing some research online when I ran across this product called Dyebrick. Sounds like a daunting project to hand stain each brick by hand?....The results were amazing though and we LOVED it! In fact it didn't even look like the same house."
Just to let you know how pleased we both are with your product. Our neighbours have commented on how good they look too!
Thanks for everything.

"We used a 50/50 blend of Dyebrick's Rustic Brown and Classic Brick Red to complete the transformation that you can see in our pictures. What a fantastic product you guys have made..."

"The overall effect is terrific - everyone who sees it thinks I built a new fireplace.
Dyebrick was specified by the local planning office. We were really pleased that Dyebrick was able to resolve our planning issues!
Author: Laura Mount: New Jersey, USA.
My husband had little faith when I told him about dye-brick and was floored by the results. Our house looks brand new! We even did it on the outside of the fireplace.

Having found you product, I was able to match my extension perfectly. I used your Yellow Stock and the Khaki for my project. Thanks for a fantastic product!
Author: Jed: Bedford, England.
My own job was an extension and loft conversion where we raised the ridge by about a metre. That left the top part of the gables a different colour to the original bricks. The only bricks I could find that were close in texture and shape were virtually white where our bricks are a creamy yellowey orange sort of colour. With Dybrick you make a base colour and you buy small pots of fixer which you mix with water. We used base colour plus 3 mixer pots which made up about a gallon of liquid. It goes a long way. That gallon did about 30 square metres and we still have about a third of it left. I started by painting it on brick by brick and ended up spraying it on with a garden sprayer. The walls and gables have blended in perfectly, The only place it's visible is the top of the chimney which is a bit off because the original part of the chimney was slightly darkened by smoke from the log fire. But even then people can only see it when I point it out to them.
I can't get over how great this product worked on the brick of my house. I live in South Philly in PA, USA - and the people I bought my house from had tried to cover the brick with cement and ruined it! They then tried to take it off and it was just a mess. We had tried all sorts of cleaners and chemicals and then I found this and the outcome was amazing! And it was rather inexpensive and only took me two mornings - and luckily they were great days so it was nice for me too.
Every neighbor who walked by was amazed...
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.

Thank you again. Your products and services are wonderful. The bricks of my house have a beautiful brown color after I used your kits. Guolin
Your product is fantastic. We had lived with this eyesore for over 10 years. Our builder told us it would weather in, but it seemed to get worse! Your Dyebrick product literally offered the magical solution! Thank you.
We are thrilled with Dyebrick! One kit of 'Rustic Brown' produced this match and it was completed within 3 hours!

I wanted a new look for the exterior of our home. Check out what I did!
I would like to express my thanks to your company for the outstanding customer care shown to me at the time of investigating just what was required to resolve a problem. It could not have been better. I would go as far as to say probably the best of any company I have dealt with. Job very well done.
We were delighted with the results from your fabulous product! We would also like to thank you for all your help with our restoration project.
Best wishes, Julian Masters.
We were so pleased when we found your product! We were able to enhance the window arch brick details perfectly using your Classic Brick Red Tinting Kit.

We are a Garage Conversion Company (Dracom) and we used Dyebrick to great effect on a recent job. The results were amazing!
We had our roof cleaned by a contractor, but their process removed all the colour from our roof!
Dyebrick came to our rescue! We are so pleased with the result. Thanks again...Roy and Jan.

"I recently purchased your product 'Brick Age' and used it to age the reclaimed bricks used in the construction of our recently discovered well. Our house was built in 1750, and the well had been filled in years ago. We built it to what we believed to be the original specification, but the bricks just did not look right. We purchased your product, and the results are absolutely amazing, as you can see from the attached photographs, before, during and after.
A great product, and such a fast service, thank you.
Author: Owain Evans: London, England.
"Just wanted to thank you for very helpful friendly service, very prompt delivery and a great product. We live in a conservation area and the council wouldn't approve planning because of mismatched roof tiles. Brick Age was excellent for the purpose and the job was easy to complete and very effective."

"We have completed our house with the Rustic Brown color and it is nothing short of gorgeous! We can't believe it's the same house! We have had many compliments and much interest in your product....."
"Thank you, Dyebrick. I have to say the bricks match beautifully, before this I could not stand looking at them, we will recommend you to friends and neighbours. Joanna"
Author: Kerry: Sheffield, England.
"The product is amazing i purchased my new home in January 2010 which had a second storey extension built without matching the bricks. I found it an absolute eye sore. Not as of today, as it now looks brilliant Thank you"
"My dyebrick tester pot showed up and my god it’s brilliant! Putting it on neat was slightly too dark and diluting it 50/50 slightly too light but somewhere in between and it’s going to colour the yellow bricks perfectly. Went straight home and ordered a full kit!"
Author: Jodi Rochowiak: USA
I just wanted to share our completed fireplace with you. We are beyond happy with the results! What a difference in the room your product made. The old brick added such a coolness to the room that I disliked so much. Now, the room has warmth and the fireplace is a focal point in the room that we embrace. We used Dyebrick in Old English Red and Rustic Brown. The whole process was quite easy, but tedious, which I expected it to be somewhat. It was definitely worth every minute I spent working on it. We have received countless compliments on the transformation. I am so happy I found your product. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a way to change the appearance of their existing brick!
Thank you,Jodi Rochowiak

We purchased this house and knew that we did not like the brick color. I was thrilled to find your product, it has truely transformed this home. The neighbors are in disbelief at how professional it looks, and comment that it looks "like it was red brick originally". Others drive by and slow down to get a double look - awesome product! Thanks!
Author: Brian: Allen, Texas. USA
"I hated how boring and BLAH and ugly the house was. So I did a little research and found this great product made in England called DyeBrick. It is a permanent stain for brick and you can mix and match your own colors. They use it in England when repair work or additions are made on old brick buildings. It is easy to use and very inexpensive.
For a little elbow grease and about $125, my house went from gray brick, to this...."

"Outstanding product. Makes my house look new. Hated the white brick....Thanks !!"
"When our new extension was built the bricks were too red and a darker shade. So we decided that it would be easier to tint the original house with Dyebrick Old English Red. This produced a more natural and pleasing result and we are thrilled with the result!"
"I ordered a sample pot of Old English Red and your Classic Brick Red and mixed them together and added a Fixing Agent Pot. This produced a lovely match for some ugly repairwork I had around my pipes.
I am so thrilled with the results....please see my photographs!......"
"We had a contractor use your 'Brick-Age' product on our home. We are thrilled with the transformation and would have no hesitation in recommending Dyebrick to others seeking to enhance their brickwork."
"Joining up the 1911 house with the 1960s garage was never going to be a 'one brick matches all' solution. Of course, a bit of power cleaning, re-pointing and new coping stones has helped but 'Dyebrick' tinting, especially on the garage wall has produced a spectacular result.

Dyebrick brick stain is perfect for all fireplaces as it is odourless, will not peel or flake and is completely fire retardant.
"I am a builder and often find it dificult to source bricks. Your products are a real aid to me. Please see my photos and thanks again for your assistance and speedy despatch times.
We were always unhappy with the washed-out look of our feature bricks and were just about to start painting them with a red 'step paint'. when a neighbour mentioned your product she had heard of on the radio.

I just wanted to send you a quick follow-up note to thank you for a wonderful product and for directing me to the color that ended up being perfect for my fireplace.
To most it's a very subtle change but to me and my husband it makes all the difference in the world. The color now blends in perfectly with my home. The grout lines are more visible which gives the overall appearance a much more attractive and clean look. I couldn’t be more pleased!
I’m sending you a couple before-during-after pictures so you can see for yourself. I hadn’t completed the hearth in the pix but you’ll get the idea.
Anyway, thanks again and have a wonderful holiday season!
Here are some pictures of an extention that I used Dyebrick on.
You did a great job of matching the colours.

"Not able to match our house brick for the new extension, I set about tinting the bricks using Dyebrick's charcoal tint. This was my first attempt at colouring bricks but with clear and helpful advice from Dyebrick and a fantastic product, I was able to achieve a superb result as the picture shows".
I must thank you for your fantastic product! and excellent help with my colour choice after emailing you photos of my brick.
I am thrilled with the results and will recommend your product whenever possible.
Sincerely, Donald Thompson
"We wanted to lighten our brick but did not want to ruin $10,000 worth of original brick facing by painting it. Dyebrick allowed us to brighten the face without taking the irreversible step of painting it...
We love the brand new look that your product has given our home."

We would like to thank you very much for all the help regarding our above order, together with the efficient way the materials were despatched to us.
After living for some years with a large mismatched brick extension on our victorian house,and not knowing quite how we could make changes to improve the appearance, we are delighted with the result obtained with your brick tinting kit.
This is nothing short of amazing, and we are very pleased with it.
The product was easy to use, and the instructions were clear and helpful.
We have no hesitation in recommending Dyebrick to others wishing to improve brickwork on buildings similar to ours, and were so glad that, after searching for some time, we found a product that could make such a difference.

I wanted to write to tell you how pleased I am with my new fireplace. I used the orange, yellow and lightner tints and then used a sea sponge to make the brick look "used" or older.
I have attached some photos of my old brown fireplace and the finished product.
I have gotten so many compliments. Thank you so much!

Author: Andrew Altieri: Old Hickory, TN
"Just wanted to show my finished job. GREAT product!!"
Andrew chose Old English Red for his project.
Many thanks for your Dyebrick consultation. The scaffolding is finally down and we can see the final results!
As the photos remind us, the extension at the front of our house was built in orange brick rather than the original 1930's brownish purple and was totally out of balance. Now we have painted the bricks only the discerning eye would recognise the join. The Dyebrick has connected the old to the new, giving the impression of one building.
I started off by watering down the solution until I personally gained some confidence in using the product. I applied between 2 and 5 coats to acheive an overall colour balance accross the whole building.
Applying the Dyebrick was easy and I quickly remembered your advice not to put too much dye on the brush to prevent running!
I hope you enjoy viewing the results of our transformation. Please feel free to use the photos on your website.
Many thanks again for your help and for producing such a remarkable product that really has transformed our home!

I would like to thank you for your product. My mother had a fireplace that was closed up for years. I found your dye online, asked a few questions and ordered the product. When trying something new, I was a little nervous of the outcome. I cannot say enough for your wonderful product. I was thrilled with the results. My mother can enjoy her fireplace once again, as well as show it off to others. I have enclosed a picture of the fireplace as it was being worked on to see the incredible difference!! I have been talking about your product to everyone I know!

It is FABULOUS! We have brick facing that had been glazed a horrid white color (obviously a product of the late 1960's) and the Old English Red Dyebrick used at full strength, 3:1 and 2:1 has produced amazing results! I would highly recommend your product. It is easy to mix and apply and your shipping time time can't be beat! I received my product about 5 days from placing my onine order. Thank you for a quality product that is easy to use. It has completely changed and improved the curb appeal of our home!

Just wanted to share some pictures of our house during it's various stages of completion and the finished project. I wanted to mention a few things too.
1. Your product is superior in quality and ease of application.
2. Your staff was very knowledgeable and responsive with questions I had during the project.
3. The instructions included in the kits were clear and easy to understand making this project much easier.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone considering this type of project.

"We are just writing to say how delighted we have been with our Dyebrick experience.
We wanted to try and age the brick so surfed the web and came across your product and chose the Old English Red dye to hopefully give us an aged brick look.
Application was very easy. Using the product at it's full strength we randomly dyed about half of the bricks. Then added a 1/4 litre of more water to the remaining solution and dyed the remaining bricks"
WOW! Your product is great. I used it on a chimney that had been behind plaster for 105 years. Dyebrick was extremely easy to use and went on quickly. You would never suspect that the lovely old red bricks were originally plain gray.
Jennifer Schnoebelen: Cedar Rapids, Iowa
"Thank you Dyebrick for such a great product! We used your Rustic Brown Kit (one) to disguise this complete mismatch that our builder said would 'weather down'!"

I contacted you last year but held back as I had other projects to deal with. I was told at the time that if I sent you pictures of my extension, then you would be able to send me an accurate Dye match with instructions. The type of brick was a Hanson Red Rustic, it has vertical zig zag lines, there was a Rustic Antique available which was a darker colour perhaps that's were the building went wrong!
Following your visit to my property, I must say how pleased I am with the colour match you created. I found it easy to apply (following the tips you gave me!) though I had to be very careful due to the zig zags.
Please find attached photos as requested, I am so happy with the results from your product, thanks again for your help and constructive advice."

We used a blend of Tudor Brown, and Brick-Age to match our new extension. We are thrilled with the results and all done for about £100!
Thank you Dyebrick!
Hello Dyebrick, I dyed my brick using two sample pots, just as you suggested. The blend of Tudor Brown and Rustic Brown worked perfectly. Thank you so much.
We never liked the pale yellow bricks on our bungalow. We are so pleased with what Dyebrick has enabled us to achieve!
We used 3 x 'Warm Orange' Brick Tinting Kits to produce a colour we truly love.
Thank you Dyebrick!
We used Dyebrick 'Warm Orange' to enhance our faded brick fireplace.
It was easy to use and apply and took us about 4 hours to complete.
Thank you for a wonderful product!
