Bricklayers employ a range of skills needed to build and repair brick walls and structures. Here are some of the jobs you can ask your bricklayer to help with and what you can expect from each:
Brick walls for homes
One of the most common jobs your bricklayer can help with is building or repairing the brick walls inside and outside of your home. They’ll help you select the right brick to match your home, before laying each brick individually using a guide to ensure a strong, attractive finish. Your bricklayer will use a trowel to spread mortar on the bottom and sides of each brick, and will knock on the brick to remove any air bubbles from the mortar. Then they’ll remove the excess mortar with the trowel.
Paving is a popular option for driveways, patios, and footpaths because pavers are affordable and easy to maintain (if one breaks, you can easily replace it). Your brick paver will start by preparing the surface. They may need to excavate the area slightly and lay down a level base material like crushed rocks, followed by a mixture of sand and cement. Then they’ll lay your pavers down in the pattern you’ve chosen, before sweeping a mixture of sand and cement into the cracks, then setting them with a hose.
Block retaining walls and fences
Your bricklayer can create brick fences, retaining walls, and even garden edgings for raised garden beds. They’ll use a similar process to building standard brick walls, but they’ll need to choose bricks that can stand up to harsher, more exposed conditions. Once they’ve laid bricks to the correct height, your bricklayer may finish off with a different brick or technique to cap the structure and add interest.
Small bricklaying jobs
Your bricklayer can also help with other smaller jobs like building custom mailboxes using bricks that match your home. Your mailbox installation will involve laying the bricks using mortar between each layer. Your bricklayer will incorporate a “box” section to collect mail and add your house number. Other small bricklaying jobs include brick fireplace installations and repairs, and even rendering.

Raising of front brick fence, approximately 250 bricks to lay. Sand, cement and bricks already on site. Need a brickie with suitable equipment and a clean job as bricks will remain exposed, i.e. no rendering afterwards.
Professional and friendly, did a great job raising the piers on our front fence. Showed up on time, easy to deal with and has all the right tools, I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone looking for a brickie.

3 Brick piers replacement with uni piers . Need to be done as soon as possible. Tasker need to supply uni piers and any other material Like bricks, cements or anything to complete the job ). uni piers (75 size), costs around 170-200 AUD each . Licensed Tasker need to supply tax invoice and warranty as well
Very bad experience. This guy promised to provide tax invoice and warranty before starting the work. As it was very important for me. Once the job completed ,he started to push me to release payment without these documents. He even threatened me to damage my property. I have reported him to police already in case my property damage. After soo many pushy messages , he wrote a non professional invoice and warrany with hand. Both does not look professional. I have written down his name and number to chase him if anything bad happens to his work.
