Walls, bridges, archways, chimneys; everywhere you look there is brickwork! Here are a few different bricklaying projects that you may need a bricklayer for:
You may want a bricklayer to build a wall or repair a wall and carry out other brickwork on your home. Perhaps you have areas that need new pointing or repointing, to keep out the elements and ensure your property is well maintained. Remember that a good brick wall needs a good foundation.
Brickwork is a precise trade - pointing, repointing and bricklaying need to be done carefully and methodically to achieve a regular finish. A bricklayer will help you choose the right type of bricks for the project and will use plumb lines to ensure you end up with a neat looking, strong wall. A good bricklayer will be needed to build internal and external walls and they'll be able to give you advice on suitable materials, depending on the project.
It's vital to maintain pointing as it affects the strength and stability of your home's internal and external walls. Chipped or damaged bricks are vulnerable to frost and heat damage so it's important you maintain your brick walls properly.
Bricklayers can advise on the various styles of pointing and can match up repointing to your existing pointing.
You may want to use a recommended bricklayer for the following projects to gain peace of mind and a professional result:

If you’re planning on having some brickwork done, such as repairing an old section of wall or building a new fireplace, the best thing to do is to call in a professional brick layer.
Bricklayers are skilled in working with a range of different building materials, and may work alone or as part of a team, depending on the complexity of the job and the amount of labour needed. Their role includes the preparation, laying and finishing of bricks, stones and other types of masonry. There are many different types of brick layer jobs, each of which requires a high level of manual skill and precision.
One of the most common brickwork repair jobs is repointing. This is required when the cement in between the bricks is damaged or degraded, and it becomes necessary to replace it to keep the brickwork safe and weatherproof. If you’re changing the layout of your garden or replacing an old fence, you may want to employ the services of a brick layer to build some new garden walls. Stone cladding for exterior walls and stonework inside the home, such as the creation of arches and fireplaces, are also part of a brick layer’s daily work.
There are many different types of brick, some traditional in style while others have a more modern inspiration. Stock bricks are one of the more popular traditional styles, while Fletton and wirecut facing bricks are available in a wide range of colours and textures. Engineering bricks are exceptionally hardwearing and often used for retaining walls. Handmade bricks are an attractive and unique choice for anyone with a little more money to spend.
