Common questions to ask a bricklayer

What is repointing?

The mortar that holds bricks together weathers and degrades over time. To keep your home looking great and the structure stable it needs to be touched up, repaired, and filled I form time to time. That’s what repointing is.

Do I need planning permission for bricklaying jobs?

Planning permission isn’t required for jobs like repairs, maintenance, minor improvements or repointing. If you live in a listed building however then you’ll need consent for any significant works, internal or external.
