A bricklayer is probably one of the first trades that comes to mind when you think about construction. If you’re practical, like being outdoors and take pleasure in seeing the end result of your work, then bricklaying may be for you.

Bricklaying is a skilled trade and an important part of the building process, as bricks often  form the structural base of some buildings. A Bricklayer may work with a variety of materials  to create different effects when working on building projects.

They use masonry materials such as bricks, concrete, mortar, lintels, cement or granite blocks and can build, maintain and repair a variety of structures including walls, chimneys, decorative arches and fireplaces in housing and commercial projects.
