Brick Staining, Brick Tinting & Brick Colouring

Brick staining has a long history. Since the 15th century, there have been examples of brickwork being coated in ruddle, a red coloured limewash. In the 19th century red ochre was used to redden the colour of brickwork. Today colour stains are useful for toning in brickwork or hiding discolouration.

Since 1968 Bebbingtons has been synonymous with brick, masonry and mortar tinting. Today they have a contracting arm working for brick and masonry companies, builders and home owners who require a remedial service for their masonry problems. They also retail masonry tints through a network of independent builders merchants and online through the website. Any brick to any colour has been the mantra at Bebbingtons for over 40 years. Bebbingtons are increasingly asked to change the colour of many other construction products or materials. These include natural stone, concrete, mortar, clay tiles and reconstituted stone.
