    Brick up a PVC back door


    I'm planning on getting a new kitchen fitted. To maximise on space, I want the back door (standard size, wooden) to be bricked up. How much should I budget for that? Also- is that the work of a bricklayer or builder?

    "hi there
    you are looking at around £400 to £600 to brick the door up. depending on if it is face brickwork to match existing, or blockwork and rendered. this includes clearance and removal of doors and materials.
    a bricklayer can do this job."

    "Hi to answer your questions when you say bricked up are you choosing bricks rather than blocks, because your outside wall is faced brickwork? This means if you want to avoid a strait perpend onto the original outside brickwork it will need stitching back up and bricks are smaller which takes longer as opposed to blockwork, however, it's likely you have just used the terminology (bricked up) so to remove the door, and frame and presuming above you have concrete lintels, and not rotten wooden lintels (when was your house built?) with materials and labour using wall starters DPC including any cavity insulation, (if needed), expect to pay around 675. and yes any reputable builder kind regards Wayne"

    "Hello, the budget depends on which finish you would like! A bricklayer to come and brick/block the door up should be around £500+ for the labour and materials.

    This price would then go up further by around £500 if you want this space plasterboard/plastered + decorated etc."

    "can be either bricklayer or builder, and depending on the brick it needs to be toothed in and also do you want and internal wall also or just external, the usual cost would be 1200, minimum for a good job, labour only."

    "The average cost of a new kitchen can be estimated at £8,000 (including VAT and fitting). Most kitchen renovations fall between £5,000 and £14,000 all in. However, this can greatly increase depending on the size of the kitchen, the style of the units and worktops, and a couple of other factors. A builder would be more inclined to do this work as they have more diverse skills however a bricklayer should not be ruled out."
