Chimney re-build and walls need repointing - Bricklaying job in Lewisham, South London

Job description

I need a typical mid-terrace house's chimney re-built. Chimney not in use but will possibly be used in future.

The walls at the back of house need re-pointing. Please quote price per square metre.

Guttering at front of house to be checked, cleared out and fixed where leaking (one place that i know of) and a small area (about 1 sq m) needs re-pointing where guttering was dripping and bricks turned around. Also, a piece of rotted wood in the eves to be replaced.

Roof checked and any broken tiles replace. I know of only one.

Roof flashing to be checked and replaced if necessary. I know of one area.

  • The following information was added Monday, 6th October, 2008 : Roof summary: Roof, roof tiles, roof abutment walls, flashing and guttering etc. to be checked and repaired/replaced where necessary and roof left in a watertight condition.

All materials, labour, and scaffolding to be included in quote.

FRONT DOOR Front door, door-step and airbricks (currently wood I think) under door-step, and door frame (including window above door) to be replaced with solid wood late-victorian style 4-panel front door with glass in top two panels including all locks and fittings. Door frame is (including window above door) approx. 86 cm x 263 cm.

All materials and labour to be included in quote. Although I'd need to okay the style of front door and glass. Glass above door to be simple frosted (opaque) glass.

INSIDE HOUSE One gas pipe (already sealed) sticking out of hearth to be lowered below floor or moved forward and resealed so a fire surround can be installed as the pipe is in the way where the surround would go (see below).

Simple pine wood fireplace surrounds to be installed X 3 (all downstairs), skirting boards to be adjusted where portions have to be removed for surrounds and everything left ready to paint.

Skirting boards in two small alcoves to be installed to match existing (existing ones were recently installed about a year ago so should be easy to match). Plus very small (4 inch) piece of skirting missing in kitchen and one piece in hallway needs adjusting as it's gone skew.

Two hearths to be tiled with slate tiles. About 1m square each.

All materials and labour to be included in quote. Although I'd need to okay the style of pine wood fire surrounds which should be solid wood and unfinished to keep price down.

Wall thermostat to be added for a Ferroli Optimax HE 31 C boiler.

Ideally i'd like someone/a company who can do all these jobs which will hopefully keep the price down but i am happy for the jobs to be split into roof/door/inside house.

Job done was good except some confusion over what original verbal quote included; one of the things was not listed on the written quote which i did not notice. Probably a genuine mistake on my part for not noticing.
