Hi. I just want to say a massive thank you to service I had about 2 or 3 years ago. I can't remember the persons name I dealt with but they gave me fantastic advice via phone and email. I used your products and improved unmatched new brick and mortar work at the time on a new extension. It is still looking good. Fantastic service. Thanks again. Rizwan
Our local planning office required our new extension to be 'aged' using Dyebrick products. The job took 2 hours to complete and now matches perfectly with the older adjacent properties. We thoroughly recommend this product for anyone wishing to match their offending bricks!
Yellow Stock & LightenerDyebrick did a brilliant job of matching to a pale wall of Victorian bricks. We were able to match up the pale yellow colours and apply additional colours to make some modern red bricks disappear!

Brick-Age x 1 Kit + Old English RedDarkening Extension: Our extension, although well built, always seemed to stand out. We darkened the shade using a blend of your Brick-Age product and your Old English Red at twice the maximum dilution. The result was just as we had hoped! congratulations on such a magnificent product! Best wishes Amanda 2005 Amanda ordered 1x Brick-Age Kit and 1 x Old English Red and 3 extra pots of fixing agent.
"We would like to thank you (Dyebrick) for the 'Special' colour you made to match our blue-black bricks...the match was perfect and we were so pleased that you charged us the same as if we had bought a standard kit. You are welcome to add the attached photos to your gallery." Brian and Sheila requested a specific colour to match their blue engineering brick. Please ask us if you require extra help with your project.
Extension MatchExtension Match When the new extension was built the bricks were too red and a darker shade. So it was decided that it would be easier to tint the original house with Dyebrick Old English Red. This produced a more natural and pleasing result. Colin's contractor ordered 2 x 'Old English Red' kits and mixed them at the maximum dilution level to cover the front, rear and end gable.
* Winner of our 2006 'Win a Nikon Camera' Competition!*"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" Donald ordered two 'Dark Plum' Brick Tinting Kits[i]
2 x Tudor Brown & 1 x Old English Red KitsDear Dyebrick, here are some pictures from before and after painting the bricks of a side extension. The problem I had was tying in an old building with a new extension. Not only were the bricks a different colour but also a different texture. I would definitely recommend getting a couple of the tester pots. We got the red and the Tudor brown. With the occasional brick painted in the red we started on the brown. The easiest way for us was for my wife to stand at a distance and tell me which brick to paint in the neat solution. Once an area was completed I would water down to the first dilution and start again on different bricks. Once I went to the next dilution it was just a case of painting the rest of the bricks. It is a real task but you can see from the pictures that the result is worth the effort, our house is now one.
Match in your extension perfectly with Dyebrick!Extensions can be matched and blended seamlessly. Email us your photos and we can suggest the appropriate brick color stain for your project. To transform this sized extension would take one Brick Tinting Kit; Allowing you to produce a perfect brick match for less than £40.00 Old English Red was used at the second dilution level, working with the original background orange colour to produce a perfect match.
"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!"

Ismail, Surrey, England. (June 2005) "I had a contractor apply your Brick-Age to my brickwork. We are so happy with the results achieved, please see the attached photos". Ishmail ordered 1 Dyebrick Brick-Age Kit and it was applied at intermediate dilution.
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.
Extension Tinting: St.Ives, Eng. (5th April 2004) This extension require enhancing to bring it closer to the original house colour. Dyebrick 'Old English Red' was used at twice the maximum dilution rate, extra 'Fixing Agent' was supplied to suit the customers requirements.
1 x Charcoal Kit and 1 x Lightener PotVery pleased with result and a very good match for colour to the engineering bricks I needed to match; especially considering the common bricks had layers of paint on them which had to be removed. I re-pointed the mortar after colouring the bricks. John purchased: 1 x Charcoal Tinting Kit and 1 x Lightener Pot.
John: Northamptonshire (02/04/2005) "The brick company told us about your product..thank goodness! Your product was easy to apply and the instructions were detailed and easy to follow. We would also like to thank your technical team for assisting us in our choice of colour". John ordered 2 x Warm Orange and 1 Old English Red. They blended half of the Old English Red to the two Warm Orange pots and used at maximum dilution.
Brick Tinting Gable"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" Keith and Joanna used a Brick-Age Tinting Kit to blend-in their bricks.
Tinting Bricks with DyebrickI 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. Thanks again! Martin [i]Martin used 1 x 'Tudor Brown' Brick Tinting Kit (at maximum dilution) for this project.[i]
Mick & Sandra: Rotherham, Eng. (14th October 2004) "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'!"
Paul, Buckinghamshire, England.“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”. – Paul, Buckinghamshire. Paul's project require 1 x 'Classic Brick Red' brick tinting kit.
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.
