We were very pleased with how our finished project has turned out. One of our biggest goals was to change the appearance of our brick. With a referral from a relative who used your product in the past we thought we would try it out for ourselves. We used 4 undiluted kits of the charcoal stain. When we finished it turned out far better than our expectations. We have already recommended your product to people who have stopped and inquired about how we changed our brick. We have no doubt it will last for years to come. Thank You.
I wanted to share my before and after pics. Although not completely done as I need to order more, I am thrilled with the results! I really appreciated all the info in the gallery so wanted to add my thoughts too. Strongly recommend doing the test pots not only to see how the color looks and how much you want to dilute, but also to practice applying and to determine if you want to do the grout or not (and it really did come off easy using a pressure washer). I used full-strength and it took about seven hours to apply each container. Completed what is shown in the pic using two containers of charcoal at full-strength (about 14 hours of time). I hesitated for quite a while, but I'm so glad I decided to do this and to use Dyebrick!
Your product is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! When I resided my home, the brick did not match and looked outdated. I thought about replacing the brick, but the brick products sold in stores are not real brick but a manufactured stone veneer and quite expensive, not to mention the added cost to have the old removed and the new installed. I searched for a brick stain in stores and online but could not find any in the United States but did find your product. After reading testimonials and viewing photos from people who had used Dyebrick, I decided to give it a try and couldn’t be happier with the results! I LOVE how my home looks now and have received numerous compliments. My home finally looks totally updated and complete! If you are hesitating about trying Dyebrick, hesitate no more! I highly recommend it! This product has the potential to make you extremely happy with the results AND save you a ton of money! A win-win for me! By the way, I purchased one Brick Tinting Kit (Charcoal) and did the full dilution (used all three Fixing Agents) and still had a ton left over.
I was impressed and overwhelmed by your professional conduct and willingness to go the extra mile to support your customers. The information you provided was valuable and was shared with my planning consultant who agreed on the suggestions given. Your products enabled us to comply with the councils strict planning enforcement requirements. Thank you so much. With my best regards. Ali
We love our new look. We used full applications of Charcoal & Mocha to get our rich brown look. The picture really doesn't show it as beautiful as it is. Thank you for your product...we are very pleased.
We used Dyebrick Old Oak, Charcoal and Dark Plum to transform our dated yellow bricks. Wonderful product, so many wonderful comments from neighbors and passers-by watching this process. We couldn't be happier with the results! Thank you Dyebrick.
Just wanted to share my before and afters. Very happy with the results. This was sprayed on. I used the sprayer that has the reservoir separate from the sprayer so I could keep it agitated as I went. Afterward we went over with a brush to give it depth. The bricks have entirely too much texture to brush on which was the original plan. The brush wouldn't get into the grooves. It looks darker from a distance but up close the orange looks reddish coming through and that's better than what we were wanting. I have recommended the dye to others already.
It's been almost a year (2017) since we used your wonderful product of Old English Red on our home exterior, and it's held up beautifully! Attached are before and after pictures. A special thank you to Mike Anderson for all your help! We love the way it turned out! Sincerely, Julie
I started my project back on May 23rd 2018. And I have to say that Dyebrick truly is amazing stuff. It takes a bit to get the hang of it if like me you are starting with fresh concrete.. but wow the difference. And yes you can double coat in order to vary the pattern. This does take time but the rewards are worth it!
My wife didn’t like the color of our house so I searched for a product I could use that didn’t require painting the house. I found this brick dye and it was amazing!! It had easy to read instructions, and was easy to mix and use. I would recommend practicing a bit with the product prior to adding in the fixing agent so you can get the hang of using it and can clean it off. It’s easy to use but if you aren’t used to using a stain like product on a vertical surface you’ll want to try it out first before making it permanent. However, once you get the hang of it you can add the agent and get rolling. Note: Make sure you keep the dye mixed as you use it to keep the color the same throughout the project. This was totally worth the time and effort. Now we have a completely different house on the outside without spending thousands of dollars. This product is amazing and I’ve already recommended it to other people I know.
It's a little belated as I did the project in 2016, but I thought I'd share our home makeover. We used Old English Red + Tudor Brown, diluted to 1/3 strength (although I went over some bricks more than once to help with getting a variegated finish). It's nice having the prettiest house on our street now!
This is our 1980s house before using Dyebrick stain. I will send the "After" photo in a separate email. We wanted to update the appearance of the brick by making it darker and more uniform. The product was great, easy to use and the customer service was remarkable. Thank you Dyebrick! Keep up the awesome work!! Don and Connie Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan Canada
Tudor Brown x 12 KitsWe just finished staining the brick of our entire home last week and we are absolutely THRILLED with how it turned out. We've received so many compliments on the finished look of our home--- the before/after pictures that I have are incredible!! We are so impressed with the product, the application, and all the assistance offered by your company! Again, we're just thrilled!! FOLLOW-UP EMAIL... The bricks with the vertical grooves were tricky, but I'll tell you what--- I almost would have preferred them over the original brick of the house. The original brick had two smooth sections with a wire-cut, vertical groove section in the middle. When I started those bricks, I had a really tough time getting the hang of it because of the smooth sections. You had said that I need to apply even pressure but the smooth sections would soak up stain so very fast and if I went too slow- even just a second- I would see the brush lines. I decided to try a tapered paint brush--- I could really lessen the amount of product used on that brush and that helped tremendously. I could swipe the smooth sections very quickly with very little product--- I would do left side, then right side and return to the wire-cut middle with the Dyebrick brush that came with the kit. That was the best process that I found. Joe had a very tough time getting the hang of it-- he had trouble going quickly and accurately enough on the smooth sections, so I had to take over. :) But when we got back to the new-er brick of the house that were all wire-cut with vertical grooves, we had to switch tactics. We went back to the brush that you gave us because it held more stain and that brick needed more product to get into the grooves or a brush stroke was wasted and didn't cover near enough-- a lot of wasted strokes before we got the hang of it. We did have many instances where we missed, or had too much product on the brush and it ran onto the mortar, but your advice to apply the stone sander helped wonders to fix the problem. And in the end, there's so many bricks and even the small mistakes don't stand out like you think they will. I calculated that I put in about 100 hours on approximately 1200 square foot house, spending about 10 seconds on each brick. Again, we're just thrilled with the result! Thank you so much for all your guidance and help and we're so grateful that you accepted our return. Thank you, thank you!
4 x Old English Red Tinting KitsFrom old to new. We bought a fixer upper house. I've never heard of dying bricks before and knew i did not want to paint the brick. I just thought would it be great if I can stain these bricks like you would do floors since I hated the light pink color. I started doing some online research and came upon Dyebrick. I looked at the reviews and photos and was wowed. This Dyebrick (Old English Red) brought new life to the house, and is now a head turner. After following instructions on the first mixture, I diluted 1 1/2 times. So bright and beautiful. Reached to Texas in two days, and shipping was free. Amazing. Thanks Dyebrick!
Old English Red various dilutions/applications.My husband and I bought our house because of the potential and great price. We didn't like the look of the out-dated blonde brick facing, but as newlyweds, the rest of the house was perfect for the price. When we decided to stain the brick, people thought it would be hard and look cheap. Finding DyeBrick, however, gave us a beautiful finish in just a weekend. The application was easy and the result was natural-looking red brick. For this project, we used Old English Red with the original dilution and 2x dilution to get a variation in the finished color. Thanks for providing such a great product and improving the look of our house! Clark and Krystal
Old English Red x 5 KitsWe are IN LOVE with this amazing product and I can't tell you how much we love the transformation it's made for our home. The neighbors (as are we!) are in AWE. Thank you SO MUCH from Aaron and Sarah Cunningham, Layton, UTAH, USA.
Love this product! I enjoyed mixing my own dye, experimenting a bit with the charcoal dye and the lightener to get the results I wanted on my brick. I decided to dye the brick and mortar the same mixture, as the translucency of the dye gives variation that would be absent if just using paint. It takes a while to apply, but I just put on my headphones and listened to music. The whole process was very relaxing. Finishing the brick shown took me roughly 20 hours over 4 days. We get compliments constantly on how much people like the updated look!
Old English Red x 1 KitHi, Love the product it has transformed our home. Our house just had a thread of cream bricks and corners in the cream brick. The house was built in the 1990's in Australian Federation Style a revival from early 1900's. I really didn't like the style of the bricks I think your brick dye really improves the look of the house. People have been stopping and asking me what product I am using. So hopefully word will spread about your product over here. I can't thank you enough for your help. Jenny Clark
9 x Tudor Brown KitsThese are images of my pink house transformation. I could not stand the color anymore. After multiple researches on the web, I chose Dyebrick. Wow never though it would be such a change! I went from a faded pink house to one of the nicest on my street! OK got to say that I had a heavy textured brick and took 9 kits in all. I went for the full stain effect. More modern than the Brown brick and grey mortar. Thanks you for your good service. Stephane from Québec Canada To see Stephane's Video - CLICK HERE
We have used your product in the past we really love the results! I am sending the front of the house before and after. Thanks again such a fabulous product! John
Rustic Brown x 15 KitsIt's almost complete and it looks awesome!!! I have attached several pictures during the process. All of the neighbors love it and people stop and ask what it is and where they can get it and I send them your direction. I can't say enough good things about it and how it has updated our home, bringing it back to life and out of the 60's. Thank you Dary Boyd
THANK YOU! I bought a fixer upper that had a terrible case of efflorescence on the chimney. I was a bit wary that dye would be able to cover how extensive the efflorescence was, but everything else I had tried (muriatic acid) didn't work. Nine months later, I still love the results!
Having had several extensions over the years I was curious to see whether Dyebrick could help me tie in the many different colours of brick on my house. After trying a few samples I decided to use the brick red colour at maximum dilution. I cannot recommend this product highly enough. It was easy to use and although it took a long time it was very therapeutic and I feel that at long last we have a house that I can be proud of. Kind regards Aileen Chapman
Old English Red Tinting Kit"We are just writing to say how delighted we have been with our Dyebrick experience. There is a brick wall at the bottom of our garden that forms part of a garage. This was covered in ivy and after removing this a wall of unsightly, 1970's style, brick with accompanying tar and oil stains was revealed (pic 1). We wanted to try and age the brick so surfed the web and came across your product and chose the Old English Red dye to hopefully give us an aged brick look. Application was very easy. Using the product at it's full strength we randomly dyed about half of the bricks. Then added a 1/4 litre of more water to the remaining solution and dyed the remaining bricks (pics 2 and 3). Our wall is approx 7m x 2.5m and the
Andrew Altieri: Old Hickory, TNAndrew Altieri: Old Hickory, TN "Just wanted to show my finished job. GREAT product!!" Andrew chose Old English Red for his project.
Andria: Philadelphia, PA"I can't get over how great this product worked on the brick of my house. I live in South Philly in PA, USA - and the people I bought my house from had tried to cover the brick with cement and ruined it! They then tried to take it off and it was just a mess. We had tried all sorts of cleaners and chemicals and then I found this and the outcome was amazing! And it was rather inexpensive and only took me two mornings - and luckily they were great days so it was nice for me too. Every neighbor who walked by was amazed....." Andria ordered one Old English Red Kit for her project and diluted it 2 and a half times to achieve the results.
Old English Red / Rustic Brown 50/50"Dyebrick is an amazing product. I'm 100% satisfied with the outcome of my brick. I've had many people stop by and comment about how nice my house looks since changing the color. Also, Dyebrick has the most outstanding customer service I've ever encountered! I'm so glad I found this wonderful company and this great product. I feel like I have a new house." Angie mixed one part Old English Red and one part Rustic Brown at the initial dilution.
Tudor BrownWe really appreciate the support you provided to us. I thought I would share our pictures of the finished house :) Thanks for your help! Beth
1 x Old English Red and 1 x Mocha Tinting Kit"I hated how boring and BLAH and ugly the house was. So I did a little research and found this great product made in England called DyeBrick. It is a permanent stain for brick and you can mix and match your own colors. They use it in England when repair work or additions are made on old brick buildings. It is easy to use and very inexpensive. For a little elbow grease and about $125, my house went from gray brick, to this...." Brian used a combination of Old English Red (4 parts) and Rustic Brown (1 part).
2 x Mocha Brick Tinting KitsI am so happy to say that I am finally done with staining the brick on the front of the house and I am very pleased with the results. When I told people my plan for staining the brick, I got a lot of crazy looks and comments about how tedious of a job it would be. Well, it was indeed very, VERY tedious and with confidence I can say: brick staining is NOT for the faint of heart. My story begins with some ugly yellow brick that comes with the late 40's house package. Needless to say, I was not feeling it and wanted to do something about it while maintaining the integrity and texture of the brick style (meaning: no painting). See the whole story on Caitlin's Blog: Suburban Camouflage
Rustic Brown x 20 Kits"We have completed our house with the Rustic Brown color and it is nothing short of gorgeous! We can't believe it's the same house!"
Rustic Brown x Six-PackJust wanted to thank you again for your help and for the amazing product. My wife and I did our fireplace with it a couple weeks ago and we loved it so much that we ended up doing our whole house this past weekend. It turned out very nice and will definitely be recommending your product to all that inquire! We have gotten several compliments already about how rich it made the house look. I'll send you a few pics. Thanks! Chad To see Chads Fireplace project: Chad's Fireplace Project
Christina - Lakeland, FLI am absolutely thrilled with your product. It is very easy to use and is completely changing the look of our home. I am half way done and can't wait to see the finished product. Thank you! Christina Gutierrez Lakeland, FL p.s. "Before" on the left and "After" on the right. I used a combination of one part brown, one part red, and one part water.
1 x Classic Brick Red & 1 x Old English Red KitAttached are some before, during and after pictures of my brick dyeing project. Dyebrick was easy to mix and use and we are very pleased with the results!
Rustic Brown x 2 KitsOur home was built by my husband's parents in 1964. We had some landscaping done which included replacing the retaining wall. I chose the stone, but once the wall was complete I did not like it with the brick on the house. After some research, I discovered Dyebrick and based on reviews, decided to try it. We ordered a sample pot and happy with the results, ordered three Rustic Brown kits. My daughter helped me apply it and while it was somewhat tedious, so worth it! We only used two of the kits. The house looks more updated and I am finally happy with the way it looks with the retaining wall.
Charcoal, diluted twice.Just wanted to send pics of our before and after. Bought home, but hated brick color. We used Charcoal, diluted twice. We love it.
George Isaacs: Beckenham, UK. (30th May 2004) George used 'Blue Sky' and 'Charcoal' at above recommended maximum dilution rate to achieve this result. Please note: Customers should order extra fixing agent for dilution rates above the recommended maximum. If you require further information, please submit a detailed query, ideally with photograph(s).
Dear Dyebrick, "We purchased our current home 18 months ago. it was a 3,700 sq.ft 14 year old center hall colonial in need of much work. We are inveterate do-it-yourselfers and completed projects such as re-flooring 6 rooms, remodelling a bathroom, rebuilding a huge deck, installing fencing and a pergola shading system. As we completed our main projects we attended a neighborhood picnic at which a young boy informed us that he and his friends referred to our house as the "mafia" house. When I asked why, he responded that the house is scary because it is dark and brooding and sits away back up on the hill. With this input we looked again at out house and were surprised to conclude that we agreed with the young man. The previous owners had built a four bedroom American colonial and brick faced it with dark red-brown brick suited for an English Tudor. We wanted to lighten our brick but did not want to ruin $10,000 worth of otional brick facing by painting it. Dyebrick allowed us to brighten the face without taking the irreverible step of painting it. After locating Dyebrick on the internet, curing our dark brick problem was simple. The three brick colors we created were: 1) 100% Old English Red 2) ½ pot of Old English Red diluted with 100mls of Lightener. 3) ½ pot of Old English Red diluted with 200mls of Lightener. Once we created them, we used these colors to lighten our dark brown bricks and to create a pleasing red, pink and white brick pastiche throughout the field of our house's brick front. The pictures tell the story of the bright and cheery face that our house now presents. The application was straight forward but required two coats of Dyebrick applied 10-15 minutes apart. We did this without waiting by applying the pink first, followed by the light and dark red bricks next. Once we finished the red first coat, the pink bricks were then ready for the second coat. We love the brand new look that your product has given our home." Sincerely, Greg and Pat Hodge Coatesville, PA.
Tudor Brown & Old English Red x 12 KitsYou guys have a really good product! I have attached a couple of photos of our project.....we mixed Tudor Brown and Old English Red at 1:1 ratio, using the first dilution.
2 x Six-Pack Old English RedHere are our before, during, and after photos from our project that we undertook this summer to stain the entire exterior of our 2200 sq ft. all brick single story home. After many long hours we completed the project yesterday! We used a total of 12 pots of 25% diluted Old English Red. We've received many compliments from our neighbors. Many neighbors who we have never actually met pull over their cars and get out to ask us what what product we are using and to tell us how good they think it looks. Needless to say we're very pleased with the results. Thank you DyeBrick!
Tudor Brown x 1 KitWe used the Tudor Brown and I diluted it to the color that we liked we had the house re-sided from an ugly yellow to this lovely blue. The stone that was there was hideous but my husband was hesitant because he hates painted stone. I had the Dyebrick for a month because he was still unwilling to try it. One day while he was at work I went ahead and tried it with his okay, at first he still didn't like it but after doing the grout lines and seeing that the color varied from brick to brick, he now really likes it. As do my neighbors. I love it. We even used it to cover the ugly grout lines on the stairs until we're able to redo those so thank you again. Janet in New Jersey
* Winner of our 2008 'Win a Canon Camera' Competition!*"Outstanding product. Makes my house look new. Hated the white brick....Thanks !!" Jeff ordered 1 x Tudor Brown, 1 x Mocha and 1 x Old English Red Kit to produce this wonderful transformation.
Rustic Brown x 2 Tinting KitsI ordered the supplies from Dyebrick. After looking at their color panels we decided we would try staining our brick Rustic Brown. Starting out we ordered a Sample Pot which is roughly $11.00 plus shipping. Once the sample pot arrived and we tried it out in an conspicuous area we were ready to order enough for the front of our house. We then ordered the Brick Tinting Kit which is around $55.00 plus shipping. With no dilution the Brick Tinting Kit is 20fl.oz which can cover 162.5 sq.ft. We ordered 2 and had some stain leftover. It took us around 15 hours to do the front of the house. If you have someone helping you, the time could be cut almost in half. It does take some time since you must stain one brick at a time. The stain is permanent and is guaranteed to last a lifetime so it is definitely worth your time. We are 100% satisfied! 'Living It' article at Suede Sofa
1 x Mocha and 1 x Tudor BrownWe are very pleased with the product!! application was easy and it looks great! Jessica used 1 x Mocha and 1 x Tudor Brown Tinting Kits for her project.
Joan Cox: Ohio (6th June 2004)"It is FABULOUS! We have brick facing that had been glazed a horrid white color (obviously a product of the late 1960's) and the Old English Red Dyebrick used at full strength, 3:1 and 2:1 has produced amazing results! I would highly recommend your product. It is easy to mix and apply and your shipping time time can't be beat! I received my product about 5 days from placing my onine order. Thank you for a quality product that is easy to use. It has completely changed and improved the curb appeal of our home! Regards, Joan Cox, Ohio, USA" Joan ordered 6 'Old English Red' Kits.
Soot Wash Replication (Heavy)We are redoing a mid-century modern ranch built in the 1960s. We originally had pinky-orange brick and now they are purply-gray to match our new stone patio. We love how the stain allows the flashing of the brick to come through and create a wonderful texture. Check out a progress shot and the final brick staining on the front. Ignore the yellow siding and white trim. They are going away soon. New cedar siding and French casement windows are next! Thank You Dyebrick!
Laura Mount; New Jersey, USA."My husband had little faith when I told him about dye-brick and was floored by the results. Our house looks brand new! We even did it on the outside of the fireplace. Thank you, Laura Mount New Jersey" Laura ordered 3 x 'Old English Red' kits for her project .
2 x Dark Plum Tinting KitsSo, I started with changing the brick. There are only a few options when it comes to changing bricks. You can rock over them. Pricey. You can remove and replace them with new bricks. Pricey. You can paint them. Ugly. Or, you can stain them. Never heard of that? Neither had I! But I thought about it one day last year and decided it would be a great way to change the brick color if I could find a brick stain. Well, I did some research (thank you the internet) and found a company in England that makes a stain specifically for brick! How lucky is that!? So, I ordered some Dyebrick samples....

Complete Brick Color ChangeWe purchased this house and knew that we did not like the brick color. I was thrilled to find your product, it has truely transformed this home. The neighbors are in disbelief at how professional it looks, and comment that it looks "like it was red brick originally". Others drive by and slow down to get a double look - awesome product! Thanks! Regina
