A bricklayer in Collingwood has many benefits. The most obvious is that the bricky is close, which means he can stop by to look at the job, offer suggestions before getting started, and give you a better price than those who must spend time and money to travel to get to you.
Different sized jobs have different considerations. Let’s examine the options.
Pricing for smaller jobs:
It’s sometimes harder to get a bricklayer out to do the smaller jobs because they can’t lay as many bricks as when they are getting paid “By the Brick”, aka per thousand rates.
Small jobs usually have a 3-hour minimum charge. This allows the bricklayer to cover his travel and prep time to and from the job. For this reason it can sometimes be more cost effective to have a couple of small jobs that can be done at the same time, or incorporate a small fix or repair when having a larger job done.
Not many handymen will do a job for just $50. A good guide for hourly rates would be between $50hr to $65hr, depending on the Brickie and scope of work needed. Location impacts the pricing too; Sydney & Victoria would be more expensive than say Queensland.
These could be quoted by a day rate(8hrs) or by the job.
Caution is to be taken here. Issues to look for are:
For this work you will need:
When looking for a “brickies near me” in Collingwood, a cheap quote may not be the best. Ask for references written and phone numbers to call. A good contractor should provide these naturally.
An older contractor maybe slower, but he may not need, or be chasing the money, like younger guys are. They tend to do their trade for a variety of other reasons.
Bricklaying businesses online with reviews?
With the advent of the internet today you can go online and check out most businesses. Not having a presence would be something that should raise a “Red Flag”.
While some businesses may have some negative reviews. Reading the replies and digging a little deeper may shed some more light. For example there are groups online that you can pay to give negative reviews. But that person may not exist anywhere other than that negative review.
Also beware of someone having 100 5-star reviews that leave only 2 word comments. These might not be real either. Dig a little deeper.
A good bricklaying business review should have a legible comment that reads well. And is by a real person.
