Bricks made the traditional way

Brick & Masonry Tinting

Brick tinting provides the perfect remedy for blending newer bricks and mortar indistinguishably with original brickwork when a suitable match isn’t available or remedial work is required on site after construction.

Brick tinting achieves a naturally weathered look through the application of a dye to the face of a brick, which penetrates the clay and forms a permanent bond. The bricks are ‘painted’ with the tint on site, which achieves a colour alteration which will weather at the same rate as the pre-existing masonry and best of all, requires no maintenance!

We have partnered with Bebbingtons, whose name has been synonymous with brick and masonry tinting in the UK since 1968, to offer a range of trusted brick and masonry tinting products, as well as a specialist on-site brick and mortar tinting service.

Key Benefits 

  • Economical Colour Correction
    Avoid expensive rebuilding or repointing
  • Safe To Use
    Weathering tints contain only water based silicate and mineral pigments
  • Gradual Weathering Options
    Can be diluted with water to suit particular application requirements and give an aged appearance without hiding original features
  • Bespoke Colour Correction
    The colour of masonry can be altered with coloured brick dyes
  • Breathable
    Tints do not seal the face of the brickwork which is vital to avoid frost damage due to trapped moisture
  • A Permanent Solution
    Providing tinting products are applied in accordance with the manufacturer guidance, brick tinting offers a permanent finish which will weather naturally with existing masonry

Clerkenwell Road

Example of Brick Tinting Process by Imperial Bricks
Following a comprehensive scheme of works, the extended elevations of this centrally located London warehouse and office building did not have the required heavily weathered and sooted appearance to match the original structure, which was a planning requirement. Our team were able to offer a remedial service by applying a brick weathering tint to the new brickwork on site, achieving an indistinguishable blend between old and new.
