Brick tinting in action  
 

The contractor on this barn conversion used reclaimed
bricks for remedial repairs because they represented the
best match for size against the original bricks, even though
their colour was too bright. Similarly, the new mortar mix
was much lighter than the heavily weathered original.

Unfortunately the poor match between old and new
became an unwanted feature of the building and
Chameleon Brick Services were employed to correct the
colour.

After developing two specific colours, one for the bricks
and one for the mortar joints, brick tint was applied and
the new brickwork was successfully blended to match
the original building.
