Bricklayers lay bricks, pre-cut stone and other types of building blocks in mortar to construct and repair walls, partitions, arches and other structures. A bricklayer also:

  • Studies plans and specifications to determine materials required, dimensions and installation procedures.
  • Erects scaffolding.
  • Seals foundations with damp resistant materials and spreads layers of mortar to serve as base and binder for blocks, using trowels.
  • Lays bricks in rows, designs and shapes, and spreads mortar between the joints.
  • Embeds blocks in mortar and removes excess mortar.
  • Checks vertical and horizontal alignment.
  • Cuts, shapes, and polishes stones and bricks using machines and hand tools, and shapes bricks to fit irregular spaces.
  • Repairs and maintains bricks, cement blocks and related structures.
