The Joy of Hiring General Contractors

Have You Chosen the Best Bricklayers?

Are you thinking about building a new wall around your property? Maybe you are frustrated by neighbours or those passing by continually looking into your grounds. Perhaps you want to add a new extension to your home to increase the number of bedrooms or to provide an office so that you can work from home. Whatever home improvement project you are considering, you are likely to need a team of bricklayers to carry the job through to completion.

Why bring in the professionals

Bricklaying is one of those jobs that everyone thinks they can do until they try to do it. It looks simple. You just lay one brick on top of the other until you have built a wall. However, the reality is often much more complex. A good bricklayer will know where to place the bricks, the amount of pressure to apply to the bricks and how to evenly apply the mortar. If you have ever seen a brick wall built by a non-professional, you may have noticed that the line of bricks is uneven or not as straight as it should be. Unless a wall is properly built, it will look unsightly, and it may also lack the integral strength that should be present in a professionally built brick wall. Why risk the appearance and integrity of your home? Call professional bricklayers and ask for a quotation for any brickwork you need.

Builders or bricklayers

When you need to choose bricklayers, you will often find adverts by builders who offer bricklaying services. Decide whether you want to employ specialist bricklayers or whether you need someone who can offer additional building services as well. There can be advantages to bringing in multi-skilled individuals. But there are also times that it is best to rely on specialist bricklayers who know everything possible about their job and have a proven track record of creating perfect brick walls in a range of situations.

Making your choice

Before you decide who should create your brickwork, it is always best to thoroughly research the prospective company. Find out whether the staff have specific bricklaying qualifications. Talk to their past clients and find out how satisfied they work with the work they had done. If possible, go and see some bricks that they laid several years ago. These bricks will give you a good idea of how well their work is likely to age over time.
