‘Soot Wash Replication’ was used on a restoration project in East Sussex. The episode ‘Coach House’ will be broadcast at 9:00pm on Sunday 2nd May. The product was well-diluted to create an authentic aged appearance to the flintwork.
Lisa and Darren share a dream of converting a coach house in East Sussex into a unique family home, under the watchful eye of George Clarke, Channel 4’s Restoration Man.
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.
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation reconstructed Richard Charlton’s 18th-century coffeehouse—which, is the only authentic 18th-century coffeehouse in the United States. the grand opening is on Friday, November 20, 4:00 p.m.
Dyebrick products were used on the cosmetic renovation to the foundation walls.
Brick mason Ray Canetti stained the bricks sympathetically to create an authetic and natural recreation of how the Coffeehouse would have looked when first built.
Dyebrick is specified for use in conservation projects, as the physical properties of the masonry are not altered. For more information about the Coffee House renovation click here.

Dyegrout, our sister Company, was the first choice for the new ‘Nike Orange’ Advertising Campaign as a strong and vibrant colour was required for special tile display units. We custom matched their bright orange brand-colour with a special high-grade flourescent pigment blend.
We are also launching this new colour (called ‘Nice’ Orange) with our new Vibrant Tile-Grout Range early in the New Year.
Dyebrick are pleased to announce that our West Coast tour is confirmed and due to start on September 6th 2010.

There is only a limited amount of time we can stop off at locations, so book early to avoid disappointment!
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.
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.
Dyebrick wishes to thank all the customers (and their neighbours!) for their kind hospitality on our East Coast 2009 tour.
We did do a lot less miles this trip than usual and managed 18 visits this time beating our last tour by four!
We experienced temperatues ranging from 28oC to -10oC on our trip from Miami, Florida to Washington, D.C. We took three days off to visit Miami and travel down to Key West.
We picked our tour bus up in Orlando, ready to start work! ~Thanks again to ‘Signs Unlimited’ for their quality vinyl grapics!
At the end of our tour we took two further days off to witness the inauguration of the 44th President of the United States – Barack Obama. We cycled in from just outside Arlington and managed to get a good view on the National Mall.
We would like to extend a special thank you to Aaron Leach and the other volunteers at the Salvation Army who accepted our bicycles as donations for their Adult Rehabilitation Centre in Richmond, Virginia and to Major Mary Smith for pointing us in the right direction.
Please Note: We could only store a specific amount of samples for our trip, so for those of you who requested samples when we were in Delaware, please remember to quote your ‘Preference Number’ when placing your order.
