    Hello Gents , I am busy with a small building project , Which I manage plan etc , I am 75 % done , But been having issues with the current brick layers I am using , They dont pitch up ( babalas ) or pitch up at 11 because there is "no Taxis" Then has to leave at 3 again , I am running behind schedule , and this is starting to Cost my wife Money ( as this is her Gym extension) she cant work while I am busy ,

    So I am looking for a brick layer to use that is reliable (if there is such a thing) I am not looking for a contractor ,just a brick layer that charges per day , I have been sent a few numbers but the conversation went like so

    Me: OK I have some building work I need to do , 1500 cement bricks to be build , How much do you charge per day ?
    Him: Ah no but I am a contractor not a brick layer ,
    Me: , OK so you are certified with NHBRC , You have your own tools, Transport , scaffolding , "handlangers" etc ,
    Him: Eish no I come with Taxi , have no tools , and I need someone to help me mix and carry bricks , I am only builder I can only come on weekends

    Me: ok so how much to you charge for brick laying?
    Him: Ah I charge contractor rates , 350 a SQ meter ,

    You'll get further if you pay a bricklayer per brick and not per day, just FYI. A good bricklayer should do 1,500 bricks a day, depending on how many layers there are.

    Yes Tried that way as well , How does 3,50 a brick sound ,(1500 x 3.50 a brick 5250 Rand a day ) that is going rate according to the locals , Honestly for that I will lay the bricks myself , I have build many houses and dams when I had my farm , I can lay 600-700 bricks a day ,Problem is I need to do a day job , so I can pay tax and Up build the country , So I dont really have the time to build the place myself , If I did it would've been finished already
