    How much does a brick wall cost to build?


    I am planning on getting a wall built soon. I already have materials for the builder to use (bricks, cement, sand and footing), which should be enough.
    The wall will need to be 7m long and 2.5m tall.
    Would anyone be able give me an idea of the approximate time it would take to complete? Or how much it would cost for the builder’s labour and time?
    Many thanks

    While each builder will have their own individual day rate, the average daily rate is probably around £120 for most.
    It’s likely this job will take a few days, probably 3 days at most without any issues, but this may vary depending on your builder.
    Based on the variance of time and day rates for builders, you can expect a cost of between £200-£400.
    I would advise asking any builder for a quote to include their daily rate, expected time required and any considerations for possibly issues that could impede their work, before agreeing to hire them.
    Having your materials ready will be a massive help and will likely save you money overall, as the builder will only be charging for time/labour. "

    "It would take 2-3 days to build.

    Dependent on if it's a brick thick wall or single skin with blockwork backing it or block piers built into it.

    I'd estimate a figure of around 500- 600 pounds to build it and 2- 4 days depending on the build."
