Thank goodness Barry & the other men on here advised me on what was a fair price.

I'm thinking now I might have a fence!

Re: Price of a wall?

I got a bit mixed up in the thread above.
This is a C&P from the man I rejected.

Hi Carol, by the rough calculation you have supplied the labour cost for brickwork alone will be 450, if the footings are not in or meeting regs and need to be dug and poured it will cost 750 excluding materials. To work out cost with materials could you please send photos as well as a picture of the face work to get a correct match.
Many thanks Dan

He's taking the mick alright Carol, even a slow bricklayer can lay 300 bricks in half a day, so not a bad labour rate...

Re: Price of a wall?

The latest on this.

2 men have been and neither have got back to me. I don't think they want the job.

No rush - I may advertise again only this time for a fencer. A fence will be a lot cheaper!
