    Hi, We are looking at houses and a couple in the home reports mention spalling brickwork. Is there anyway when we view a property to know how bad/deep the damage goes? Are there any warning signs we should look for? For example, one today had a section about 1m by 4m that had three bricks that were missing their fronts. Should we just assume it would be a complete replacement job? Can this affect the structural integrity of the house as well? Thank you!

    My highschool sent me to college just before lockdown and I completed my level one in bricklaying, I have the certificate from the college to prove it. I was wondering if anybody knows if I could be hired now or would I have to wait until I’m sixteen?

    What can I do about bricks that contain surface debris? I’m talking about debris like moss, mould and dirt. Is this to be expected or should I look after this and clean it/remove the debris? If so, how can I go about this? Thanks.
