    Default Brick laying

    During an average day, how many bricks could a decent brick layer lay? Assuming a half decent labourer?

    Depends on what type of brick and what is being built?

    Facing brick is a lot slower than say block work.

    What is the build?

    30 foot run exterior wall, just need a bricking rate, not block, ties or insulation. (But build rates for these would be useful separately though)

    My boss is having an extension built and the bricky is charging £380 (plus VAT) per 1000 facing bricks laid.
    He says that on a good day, he can lay around 500 bricks a day. That price includes the labourer.
    HTH.
    Richard.

    Eh, are you talking about the richest brickie in the UK?

    A self employed brickie will cost you £150-200 a day labour only.

    £500 a day that's £2.5k a week or 130k a year!!
