Matching some colours up for the owners of this lovely Railway Station on the Mid-Norfolk Railway. It was a great day out!
Karen & Martin are restoring this with such sympathetic pride. They need to remove as much of the old paint as possible without damaging the face of the brick. Any residual ghost staining will be tinted to match the original brick colour using our earth-based iron oxide colour stains. Dyebrick does not alter the physical properties of the brick, making it ideal for their project.
We will keep you updated with their progress!
Dyebrick, just like cats, are available in a range of colours!
We stand with the nation in grief on the passing of Her Majesty the Queen.
Our thoughts are with the Royal Family.
Like many around the world, we are reflecting on her memory and her legacy at this time.
Our staff will be paying their respects on Monday 19th September as Her Majesty is laid to rest.
A blend of our ‘Warm Orange’ and ‘Mocha’ was used for Dina and Ben’s new extension. The bricks needed to blend more closely with the original house to meet the local council planning requirements.
Our ‘Brick-Age’ product was used on this new build, to make the house match more sympathetically to the surrounding period properties.
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.

Soot Wash was used to great effect on this kitchen project!
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!
