Our mortar joints were looking old, tired and dirty. We used your LimeLike 'Buttermilk' product to lighten them to match the new mortar on the newer brickwork. This has made our house look cleaner and like it has been just been freshly re-pointed! It took 2 x Sample Sachets and we carried the whole job out for less than £25!
I am so pleased with your service. I was able to match my mortar perfectly using your Rustic Brown and Mocha (50/50 blend). Thank you! Thomas
Lightening very black mortar joints. We used your LimeLike'Buttermilk' diluted it a few times and blended it with your Dyebrick 'Yellow Stock'.
A 50/50 blend of Classic Brick Red & Warm Orange was used to dye the mortar that had smeared over the front of the brick. Two sample pots were enough to complete the project. This made the joints look narrower and blended in nicely.
Gill Bostock: Tampa, FL. (17th May 2003) "Dyebrick was ideal for enhancing the grout on our stone block driveway, we used a blend of Charcoal with Brown. The product was both easy to mix and apply." Note: We don't usually recommend our products for surfaces used by vehicular traffic, but in this case the mortar joints were recessed and of good sound quality. Please contact Dyebrick for advice on matters of this nature.
"Great product! we used your Charcoal dye to disguise these obvious pointed areas. Thank you for your advice during our works." Alastair ordered 1 Charcoal Kit.
Thank you for the recent info + quick delivery of the mortar tinting kit. Very pleased with the results, see attached pictures. The ugly repointing is gone!I used an undiluted mixture of lightener + a small amount of the yellow stock and rustic brown. Takes a few tries to get the right colour match, but not too difficult. The mortar brush was just the right size, it would've been a much more difficult job without it. thanks again! Barry S, Wokingham, Berkshire.

David Gunn: Surrey, Eng. (30th September 2004) "I was very pleased the way this product performed. I needed to alter the colour of newly repointed mortar joints. I have attached photos of before and after. Thank you once again. David, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, UK" David ordered a Yellow Stock Kit, Lightener and a Khaki sample.
Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help and for sending me exactly what I needed to match the mortar for a small porch wall (from grey to a sandy yellow). Attached is a before and after photo. Again, many thanks Kind regards Mark
