174 S/f Brick Wall Labor Cost


Hi--

I'm having difficulty finding an answer thru google on this so I'm hoping someone here can help me.

I need to rebuild a collapsed garage. Long story short--homeowner wants the reconstruct TWO of these walls in their original state, which means structural brick w/ rebar & ties, NOT using block. The garage has been torn down, two walls need to be rebuilt in brick, and the rest of the garage will be frame (seems silly but there are reasons I don't want to get into).

Simple question: two walls, total length is 29 ft by 6 ft high (174 s.f.). Brick wall will be double width, running bond. I have all of the brick. New footing being poured on existing. I just need a brick layer to lay the brick on the new footing.

First estimate was $6,900, or $39.66 per s/f. Seems high to me. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

I will try to get this in before the administration shuts it down.

You hadn't done any kind of introduction, you listed your occupation as General, and you hadn't listed where you're from.

Your situation makes you sound like a home owner double checking prices behind your mason.

If you were a GC, you would know your local masonry cost.

Without an introduction, nobody here on CT can help you, we dont know where you're located. Masonry in England may cost you alot more than masonry in Claudville VA.

And no matter where you're located, this is Thursday afternoon, I doubt you're going to find a mason to show up the first of the week to lay up your two walls.

Direct pricing questions are frowned upon on CT, so this thread will probably be shut down soon.

Wish you the best on your garage project

You cant get a sq.ft. price on abortion repair work, you get the pain in the ass price and you take it or leave it because no one will care if they get the job.
