Do you work outside of Colorado?
Yes, we travel nationwide for commercial-sized projects.
Can I see projects in my area that you have completed?

How do I get an estimate?
Please submit your project via our project form or contact us at 877.419.3292
How much does it cost?
Because different clients have different needs we’ve developed a flexible pricing structure that evaluates multiple variables. These include: square footage of the area to be colored, whether the mortar is to be colored, the number of colors on each brick, optional aggregate, applying a top-coat sealant, height of the building, location and more. Please contact us to discuss the details of your project.
How does brick staining work?
BrickImaging’s Stayntech masonry staining process utilizes over 40 years of brick staining technology to achieve brick color transformations that look as though the masonry was initially installed that way. Our process lasts for years without any additional required maintenance.
How do I re-color brick?
BrickImaging’s Stayntech masonry staining process provides a clean and natural looking alternative to painting or costly replacement.
Does your product fade or change color?
No, we take careful precautions when applying and sealing each of our projects to avoid any fading characteristics. Over time, the only noticeable color changes will be those resulting from natural environmental conditions to which the structure is subjected, such as dirt or dust on the walls, etc.
What does your product consist of?
Our products are all environmentally safe, acrylic based proprietary blends that have undergone standard materials testing (ASTM) and are warranted for 15 years. Please refer to our product page for ASTM results.
The Stayntech® Process
Can the brick color be changed, even after the project has been stained?
Through the use of samples , previous project and education BrickImaging strives to provide clients with examples of what the finished product will look like. In the event that the color does not meet a client’s expectations – and depending on the type of surface, we can change the color. Most substrates can withstand up to three color-changes without compromising the natural look and feel of the original masonry work. Additional charges may apply after a sample has been approved.
Can I see a sample before you do the project?
Yes, BrickImaging can provide a sample for review before staining a project. Loose samples for out-of-state projects as well on on-site samples before project completion are provided.
Do you do any other repair work?
BrickImaging specializes in Stayntech color transformations and does not perform any repairs.
Can Stayntech be applied over painted brick?
Painting masonry fills in the pores of the brick and allows for a much higher risk of chipping and peeling. We do not apply Stayntech to brick or block in this condition. However, some surfaces can be stripped of the paint and then colored.
*Incorrect methods used for removing paint can cause substantial damage. Please consult with a professional before attempting any type of paint removal from your masonry.
How long does Stayntech last?
BrickImaging warrants each Stayntech project for a standard 15-year period. However, projects completed more than 30 years ago (real-time results) have maintained their original appearances without the need of any maintenance or touch-up. We have no doubt that Stayntech-treated masonry will outlast the 15-year warranty period.
What colors can you match?
We can match virtually any color or pattern. Choose from our popular Color Chart or submit a custom color.
To what types of surfaces can you apply Stayntech?
Stayntech can be applied to any porous masonry material including brick, block, mortar or stone. Exceptions are flat surfaces such as driveways or other high-traffic areas. BrickImaging can not account for the forces placed on these types of surfaces and therefore cannot warrant such work.
