Colour Matching Brick & Stone Repair Mortars
The Jahn range of repair mortars are available in a wide range of standard colours that closely match the most common colours of brick and stone used in construction.
In the event that we do not have an appropriate standard colour that closely matches the material being repaired we can create a custom coloured mortar.
A small sample of the brick or stone being repaired is all that we need in order to adjust a repair mortar to closely match the original material.
Brick & Stone Tinting
Due to the shortage of old bricks and original materials matching old masonry with new masonry is an increasing challenge in the construction, repair and building restoration industries.
The technique of using silicate based tints to stain brick, stone, concrete, mortar joints and other masonry surfaces has been in existence for over 50 years. The continued development of this technique has produced solutions that allow for twenty to thirty year warranties. In the development and sourcing of our own product Steadfast have seen examples of colour matching that date back to the 1980’s, that have aged effectively with the original substrate.
The specially developed silicate base solution is vapour permeable allowing the substrate to continue to behave naturally. The base solution is combined with mineral pigments to create a tinting solution that can darken, lighten and even completely change the colour of brick, stone and any semi-permeable building material.
Unlike paints and coatings, our tints penetrate into the substrate creating a durable bond and effectively becoming one.
