Brick tinting is by no means a new phenomenon, but you may not be aware that it's an option open to you to help remedy brickwork repairs and new brick extensions that don't match your existing property. 

Brick remains a staple in British housebuilding as it is low maintenance, cost-effective, and widely used by the trade; however, colour and finish vary depending on the type of brick used, while reclaimed bricks cannot always be found in sufficient quantities.
