Colouring roof tiles!Dyebrick can be used to restore and enhance old faded concrete and clay roof tiles. It is only suitable for uncoated, natural concrete and clay roof tiles and should not be used on modified acrylic slurry-coated tiles or tiles with a glazed or sealed surface. Quite a few tiles manufactured over the last 10 years fall into this category, so please check first.
DYEBRICK IS NOT GUARANTEED FOR USE ON ROOF TILES. However, we do supply a 10 Year Guarantee against colour loss or fade on Vertical clad tiles. The best method for application is by paintbrush but can also be spray applied. Dyebrick will not be effective on moss, algae or lichen or excessive dirt, so these deposits must be removed by pressure washing. Allow the cleaned areas to dry out thoroughly as the roof needs to be dry prior to any tinting work. Concrete roof tiles can absorb a lot of fluid so please test the coverage rate of your tiles first. See how many tiles you can coat using 1 litre of water first, this will give you a guide on how much to purchase. Please try our sample pots first, to assess the degree of attachment to your tile type.

Tile Tinting Conservation Area"Just wanted to thank you for very helpful friendly service, very prompt delivery and a great product. We live in a conservation area and the council wouldn\'t approve planning because of mismatched roof tiles. Brick Age was excellent for the purpose and the job was easy to complete and very effective."
