Took 10wks to complete a 2wk job, and the finish really lacked attention to detail. There were more days that nobody turned up, than actually did turn up. Issues "post refurb", but my calls/txts were ignored, & it took well over a month to get anything re-done. The "boss" has the chat when it comes to the quotes etc, but after that, he won't answer your call or texts, & the communication is really poor. Aron is a good guy, else don't expect too much from anyone else. Definitely wouldn't recommend.

When KR closely examined our roof it was in much worse condition than anticipated. This is a converted church. The roof is 170 years old, large and steep and misaligned because of a past partial collapse. We decided to strip the roof back to the rafters, and tile it. As work progressed we found supplementary rafters need to be added to fix shape and decay. Nelson and Andrew informed us of issues and agreed resolutions. A big, difficult job well executed. The end result - superb. Highly recommend.

We wanted a section of decking raised and two nice guys responded promptly - but.... They quoted for the job but once finished they said it was just the labour charge, it was more than double the quote and they spent lots of time at the builders merchant. They used over a thousand screws and used untreated wood around the skirt. They are NOT skilled at working with wood - the quality of cutting and joints is atrocious, so much so we have had to pay for remedial work. Would not recommend for decking.

What type of tradesperson do you need?

What type of job is it?

Bricklayers - what you need to know

Bricklayers build and repair walls, chimney stacks, tunnel linings and decorative stonework. They’re also the trade you turn to for any repointing work you need done on your home.Bricks are very durable and require little maintenance. They can withstand floods and fires, while insulating well against external sound.

There are a few different things you might require a builder for, with garden walls and repointing being the most common. If you’re having an extension or loft conversion done then you might need one then, but your builder or loft specialist will usually arrange the specific tradespeople needed to complete the whole job. Bricks are available in a variety of textures, sizes and colours, to get exactly the sort of look you’re after.

What a bricklayer can help with

Repointing

Brickwork is held together using mortar, which is most commonly made from cement. The mortar plays several important roles in maintaining the structural integrity of your property. It keeps water out, but also lets moisture escape – essentially allowing your home to breathe. It’s flexible enough that any ground movement that occurs as a building settles, won’t affect the walls.

Over the years though, this mortar can decay, so it needs to be filled in, touched up and repaired. Choosing a light colour for the mortar can also completely revamp the exterior of your home, making it look fresh and new.

Bricklayers usually gain their experience through courses, apprenticeships or on-the-job training. By all means ask them about their experience, but you can also request references or photos of previous work to confirm their quality. 

Planning permission for bricklaying jobs

You don’t need to apply for planning permission for repairs, maintenance or minor improvements, such as painting your house or repointing.

If you live in a listed building, you’ll need listed building consent for any significant works whether internal or external.

Insurance for bricklaying work 

Your bricklayer should have public liability insurance which will protect you and your property should any damage occur.

Building regulations for external walls

If you want to re-render or replace timber cladding to external walls, building regulations may apply depending on the extent of the work.

Where 25 per cent or more of an external wall is re-rendered, re-clad, re-plastered or re-lined internally or where 25 per cent or more of the external leaf of a wall is rebuilt, the regulations would normally apply and the thermal insulation would normally have to be improved. See the planning portal for more detailed information.

Questions you should ask a bricklayer

  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • How long have they been trading for?
  • Can they give you up to 3 references of recent work they’ve completed?
  • Will they give a guarantee/warranty for the work and how long does it last?
  • Will they source all materials and equipment?
