Sample pots Old English Red & Warm OrangeI repaired mortar on the front of my friend’s house. Some of the bricks had broken (2 had split), so had to fill with mortar. Thank goodness for Dyebrick. I bought a sample pot of the English Red Brick and one of Orange and blended them as needed to match different color bricks. The result is perfect! Thanks!

Dan Smith: Woking, Surrey, England.Over the past few weeks we have bought some sample pots from you and have been experimenting with a range of colours to try to match in the new bricks with the old. We thought you might want some before and after pictures to see how successful it's been. Thank you very much as well for sending a couple of free sample pots during the order process. I would highly recommend your product and service. Dan Smith, Woking
My nightmare building problem was how to repair the drive pillar and end section of a residence’s twenty-five year old wall, which had been hit by a car. To replace the whole wall in new brick was simply unaffordable. Worse still, it was made from red-purple bricks with mottled age markings of which there was no modern equivalent: they had been fired to a non-standard size: and the wall’s colour was balanced with those of neighbouring properties that formed part of an historic grade 1 conservation feature! I contacted every brick merchant worth his salt from the north to the south of England but the brick could not be matched. The house owner was well-informed and very particular, and would not accept a compromise. After four months of fruitless research, the situation was becoming testing. This is when a bricklayer recommended Dyebrick to me, having seen the results during a well-known BBC building & renovation series. Dyebrick were personable and helpful from the start, going to exceptionally patient lengths to help me isolate the dye colour blends and brush techniques that would achieve a precise match. I was also carefully advised to choose new bricks with the correct surface texture and match the mortar style. Thus, despite my incredulous disbelief, new yellow bricks were used to re-build the wall and pillar, and each layer of brush-applied Dyebrick worked its transforming magic until the wall looked exactly like it had done before the accident. Quite incredible! And the material cost was a fraction of a rebuild. I am sure there are many building situations where Dyebrick is the only viable option. My heartfelt gratitude to the Dyebrick team and their amazing products. Yours sincerely, Giles Pittman
Tinting-out 'Ghost Staining'Graffiti ghost-stain removal (15th August 2003) Although this gallery was not submitted by a customer, it illustrates one of the many uses for Dyebrick. In this case, the original graffiti was removed as much as possible by cleaning, but a ghost-stain still remained. This was successfully tinted out using Dyebrick. For this job, Old English Red was used for the bricks and a combination of Charcoal and Lightener were used for the mortar joints. Dyebrick was ideal for this job because a sealer/anti graffiti product was applied afterwards. Dyebrick is compatible with most general-purpose waterproofers and sealers as Dyebrick does not alter the original properties of the brick.

After our garage gable collapsed the Insurance Company got a contractor in who used Dyebrick colour stains to blend in the new bricks to match the original. We were very pleased with the results!
