Someone crashed into our garden wall and drove off! So don't know if the costs to rebuild are worth claiming on insurance with excess and future policy loading.

Trying to find a rough cost to rebuild a garden wall that is double skin 13 courses wide 13 courses high with an additional top row at 90degrees on their end. Don't know if it's more economical to reuse old bricks (don't know name of them but nice smooth maybe engineering bricks) or to dispose of old ones and get new but then they would not match rest of wall!

Wall is in Blackpool. Any ideas of rough costs, I know it's difficult but I have no idea so want a very rough idea before I approach insurance company.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

:) Hello Ched and welcome.

You may have to wait until someone picks this up, either when they get home or when they have a break and browse through on their smartphone, but you won't be ignored. ;)

SPONS (http://www.ebuild.co...&attach_id=2363 see page 274) gives the cost of single skin brickwork as being around £60/m2 for supply and lay plain bricks faced both sides. That's a 2014 price, plus there may well be local pricing differences from region to region, plus small jobs will cost a lot more as there's a fixed cost element in travel, equipment etc.

Labour wise I'd guess your looking at £200-300-one Brickie & a Labourer for a day but that depends on how much tidying up of what's left of the old wall there is to do,where the new brickwork will meet existing. Any pics?
