Brick Staining Skills


Nawkaw completed a job for me and I am amazed at the results. I want to learn more about the process. What did they use? No one had heard of the process except two brick supply houses that led me to there services. Needless to say I want to learn the process. Can I buy there products? Any leads would be greatly appreciated. I own several properties I would like to play with. No way would I practice and expect professional results on someone's property. I want to learn the methods so maybe one day I can fix small insurance repairs when I am 100% confident.

I have used their services for a heck of a long time,always with great results! I may be way off base,i think it may be a franchise.

They are kinda of a long way from my area. I wouldn’t be hurting there business. The adjusters I was dealing with had never heard of the process along with a whole lot of other people in my area. Process looked interesting and I would love to learn it.

Re: Brick Staining Skills


MIKEYJP1980; The results i experienced using NAW-KAW were astounding.The goodwill created with customers matching editions,window infill,and chimney top repairs etc. to old buildings was well worth the expenditure . Theoretically speaking,if you can match the brick size and texture NAW-KAW will handle the color.I mentioned their services on this site late last year. For those interested,there are several options to match old brick. GALVIN brick in IA.has a selection of salvaged brick,along with services to fire new brick to match. Colonial brick in In.wil also fire new brick in a attempt to match. Lastly, there is a manufacturer in TN. that i used with good luck years ago. That name sadly escapes me now though.

It's done a lot in London to the London Yellow Stock bricks to make them look dirty like the rest of the city.
