Reusing bricks from an internal wall

Print-friendly Version

Question

We're thinking of cutting a internal double brick wall and using the bricks to build a garage. Is there any preference for brickies to lay on new or 2nd hand bricks? Apart from chipping off the mortar, do I have to wash them with a special solution?

Answer

The first step would be to get an Engineer to look at the proposed opening, and confirm via certification that it is OK and instruct you on how and where to support the new opening, so that no structural issues come about.

There might be a slight increase in price for using old bricks. No special solution is needed, though.
