Brick tinting


Postby marty » Sat Apr 23, 2011 1:07 pm

My house had an extension some years ago and the upper floor brickwork does not match (lighter although same brick) the lower floor.

Does anyone know if there are any products available to tint the lighter bricks which I could apply myself.

You could try aquaseal,it will coat the bricks with a long lasting silicone film

I realise this is an old discussion but want to put out here that you can have your brick masonry and mortar any colour you like.
Bebbingtons are the oldest contract brick tinting business in the UK.
Indeed George Bebbington invented the process back in 1968.
