    Bricklayer Overview

    Bricklayers typically build and repair walls inside and outside of properties, plus other kinds of brickwork, including tunnel walls and chimneys. In terms of house building, the bricklayers job is to construct the first shell of the building, making the walls waterproof, weatherproof and secure. Typical skills include cutting bricks to size, laying the bricks in courses, working to architect's plans, mixing mortar and making access holes to bring water, electricity and other utilities into the building.

    Bricklayers build and repair walls, chimney stacks, tunnel linings and decorative stonework. Projects can range from a house extension to a large commercial development, re-pointing, garden walls, stonework & stone cladding and chimney repair or rebuilding. Repointing is a common job, particularly on older properties, which involves the renewing of the external part of mortar joints, to counter the effect of weathering and decay which can cause voids in the joints between brickwork, allowing water ingress.

    Some bricklayers specialise in stonemasonry, as a protective and decorative covering for interior or exterior walls and surfaces, or even as a method of construction. Building garden walls on the property boundary, or as a design feature in a garden, is another popular bricklaying project.

    Choosing a Bricklayer Near You

    Bricklaying is more complicated than it may sound, though a small decorative non supporting wall in the garden may be within the scope of some with decent DIY skills, jobs involving retaining walls or interpreting architects plans and drawings, are much more complex and, for safety reasons, are best left to professionals. Most bricklayers have been trained as apprentices on building sites and have many years of experience working on assorted projects. When choosing a bricklayer, look for relevant qualifications including time served apprenticeship, NVQ's, SVQ's, and higher level qualifications such as a Diploma in Construction or City and Guilds training, along with plenty of relevant experience. Many local authorities will have a "Trusted Trader Scheme" of some description designed to help customers avoid the rogue traders often seen on television.

    Like any other contractor, the best way to hire a bricklayer is on personal recommendation from someone you trust. If you are not in a position where family and friends or neighbours can direct you to a suitable bricklayer, then ensure you get quotes from a least three local contractors. Then compare the figures on a like for like basis, ask for referrals and to see other jobs they have completed in your area, reputable bricklayers will have no problems allowing you to see other projects they have completed and talking to previous customers. Beware of dealing with anyone on a cash only basis without headed notepaper and a proper business address, as you will have little comeback if things go wrong, no matter how cheap the rates are!

    Typical Cost for Bricklayer Jobs

    When bricklayers cost jobs, the price is invariably labour only, they supply their own hand tools, but all materials and including the sand have to b priced separately and must be organised to be ready on site for them with water in a butt and any scaffolding required. So when getting quotes from bricklayers, remember to add on all other costs for the job before comparing quotes. A good brickie will charge from around £130 per day plus £90 per day for a labourer if required - be wary of anyone who charges much less than this unless you are 100% confident in their work. Some bricklayers also charge per 1,000 laid bricks at a rate of around £350 to £400. Many customers are more comfortable paying for bricks laid rather than per day unless they have previous experience with the bricklayer - after all you don’t want to be paying £130 a day if he turns up at 10.30am and leaves by 3pm!

    Bricklayer Frequently Asked Questions

    Some common bricklaying questions are answered below:

    Single or Double Skinned Wall?

    Most walls are constructed as double skinned in the UK. There are instances where a single skinned wall will do just fine such as a decorative garden wall which only has to support its own weight. If the wall being built is for a new structure, the likelihood is that the construction will be subject to building regulations and instructions from a structural engineer. Always check with your bricklayer as well as the relevant planning authorities before building a wall or structure.
