Our Story

Family-owned BrickImaging was founded by Bob Homolka in 1976 after he invented the firm’s proprietary Stayntech® masonry stains. The company is the oldest brick, block, stone, and mortar staining firm in the country and is still operated today by the Homolka family.

Bob, a successful owner of a Fort Collins-based paint company, dreamed up the idea of a masonry stain after he realized the product did not exist. After years of research and extensive testing, Staytech® masonry stain was born. His first masonry staining project involved staining mismatched block on a commercial building that was under construction. The masonry contractor was facing tens of thousands of dollars in replacement costs so he contacted Bob with hopes that he had a solution. Bob was able to correct the problem after applying his Stayntech® masonry stain and saved the project.

Successive staining projects helped define BrickImaging as a premier provider of masonry staining services. Today, the company has expanded into both residential and commercial masonry staining and our clients include homeowners, commercial building owners, architects, facility managers, real estate portfolio managers, construction managers, military personnel, and more. BrickImaging specializes in staining single-family homes, office buildings, warehouses, multi-family housing, retail plazas, banks, hospitals, courthouses, schools, churches, and hotels among many others.
