Our Brick Tinting Service

As most brick restoration services are focused on reinstating the integrity of the property, brick tinting is concerned with maintaining the appearance of the property. Regardless of the age of the property, our Brick Tinting service conserves the aesthetic of a brick building by masking any signs of refurbishment work.

We always aim for an overall effect where the new brickwork is indistinguishable from the original, which means that we will combine the following processes as required.

● Brick tinting

● Colour correction

How Does Spectrum Apply Brick Tinting?

The brick tinting solution is not paint, it is a mixture of coloured dyes combined with an acrylic-based and potassium solution. A bespoke mix is created onsite for testing on brick samples to ensure the correct colour blend is achieved. In order to match multicoloured blends a variety of different dye solutions can be blended in combination with each other to create the optimum match. Bricks can also be multicoloured, with variations and flashes that make up the brick type. It is also possible to match these variations in addition to single colours.

For tinting to be successful, a degree of porosity is necessary, usually no less than 10%. Most bricks can be tinted, however, there can be issues with very smooth or very hard bricks with low porosity and therefore low absorption characteristics. In these cases, a different binding constituent is employed, and this can give the bricks a slight sheen.

As part of our service all colour decisions are made in consultation with the client to ensure that they are satisfied with the approach and colour before the project work begins.

What is Brick Tinting?

It is more than likely, that when brick repairs have been carried out on a building or extensions added that visible differences will be seen between the original and new brickwork. Even minor replacement work will be visible give the building an unsightly patchwork look. In such cases, tinting will make the new bricks or mortar replicate the original in colour and hence appearance. Tinting is the process of changing the colour of the bricks on a permanent basis to blend in with surrounding facing brickwork.

In certain cases the client, to achieve a desired different aesthetic effect, requests that all the brick work colour be completely changed. The tinting solution penetrates the brick, or mortar creating a coating that is designed to wear at a similar rate as the original masonry. Brick tinting dyes the actual clay material of the brick which is why it is called tinting and not painting.

Why Would You Need Brick Tinting?

There are many reasons why brick tinting may be required – for example, older bricks weather over time, meaning that often, the nearest equivalent newer bricks may not be a close enough acceptable match.

Scarcity or unavailability of original bricks is another reason why tinting is increasingly being used to achieve even results. In the decade following the 2008 crash, smaller brickworks went out of business and so sources of matching bricks for local projects disappeared. With brick production currently concentrated in a few large manufacturers, it has become increasingly difficult to match old original bricks in their original condition. Professional brick tinting is the ideal solution, especially as bespoke colours can be generated to achieve a match.

How Long Does Brick Tinting Last?

With modern techniques and products, brick tinting can be expected to last for up to 30 years. The bricks will continue to perform the same as the original bricks, in terms of breathability and weathering.

At Spectrum, we believe your building deserves to always look its very best and that includes brickwork which should be uniform and in excellent condition. Applying this brick tinting technique will help to maintain and increase the value of your property asset over many years.
