Brick and Mortar Tinting
What Is Brick Tinting?
Brick tinting is the process of physically changing the colour of brickwork
to match surrounding areas by applying a tinting solution to each individual
brick or mortar joint.
Brick tinting solutions are water-based pigments that are odourless,
non-flammable and non-toxic. As they are dye and not a paint, brick
tints are absorbed and chemically bonded into the masonry surface. This
preserves the original texture and character of the brick, resulting in a
natural looking change of colour that’s permanent and doesn’t require any
How Brick Tinting is Conducted
Because no two tinting situations are the same, specific colours have to be developed for each project.
By mixing the appropriate colours and controlling the concentration of the
solution, Pegasus can produce the colour required to correct almost any
brick or mortar colour issue.
Once the colour has been established the tint has to be carefully applied by
brush to each individual brick or joint.
We are always happy to visit site or recieve pictures of the offending area(s), assess the situation and discuss your tinting options with you. We will even produce a sample and apply it to an
inconspicuous area for your approval before we start work.
Why Should You Have Brick Tinting Carried Out On Your Property?
Brick Tinting can be used to blend in extensions and to correct the
appearance of ‘brick banding’ that occurs after variation in colour of bricks
from different batches or blending in patchy brickwork following remedial
work. The same applies with mortar tinting. We can also use this system to repair damaged areas of brickwork.
