Frequently Asked Questions
Just a few of the most frequently asked questions. If you have anymore, just call us on 0800 832 1935.
Do you paint the bricks?
We use paint brushes and apply to each brick that requires colouring but it is not a paint that we apply.
It is a soluble solution that permanently dyes the brick, soaking into the brick itself, unlike a surface paint.

What about the Mortar colour?
We can also colour tint the mortar joint to match. If you are unsure we will advise on whether your mortar joint should also be tinted once we see pictures of your brickwork?
Can you colour treat stone?
Yes, we can colour tint any type of natural or reconstituted stonework.
We often suggest though that we also seal the stone afterwards in order to provide a lifelong guarantee. Click here to view 'before and after' images of recent stone matches.
Can you Match Any Brick?
Yes, we can match any brick, including the most weathered or multi coloured facing bricks
Can you visit our Site?
If needed to yes.
We ask for images of your brickwork first as normally we can quote your project from images. If that is not the case, we will arrange to visit your site to view your brickwork and the requirements of the job.
Start though with pictures and basic details by completing our online quotation form here.
Can I have a Sample Panel?
We carry out a square metre sample panel on the first day of work at your project.
If you are not happy with the sample panel (thats never happened!) we go away and you are not charged.
Is it Guaranteed?
Yes, all our work comes with a lifetime guarantee, guaranteed for the life of the brick and/or building.
What if Planners need a sample?
If planners require a sample panel prior to approval for work on site we can provide a sample panel through the post or an on site sample panel.
What About the 'Blank canvass' Brick?
We can supply the brick that you should build in, or you (or your builder) can source this from your local Builders Merchant.
Even if you choose to buy this from your local Builders Merchant we can help and advice you on which brick to build in and confirm your choice is suitable.
That way we can ensure that you are matching the texture of your brick as best as can be and also using a brick that will aid and not hinder the colour matching process.
