Brickwork Choice Can Impact a Property's Appeal

It is also important that the correct tone of mortar is used and that its effect on the profile of the joints is taken into account. Mortar has a big impact on the overall appearance of brickwork, so we would recommend that any home owners looking at the possibility of using brickwork in their home to consult a qualified bricklayer.

Home owners can increase the saleability of their property by creating features from attractive and practical brickwork, according to Ratedpeople.com, the UK's largest match making service for home improvers and recommended tradesmen.

The use of a stylised form of brick in outdoor features such as barbeques or flower beds can mean that an ordinary container for flowers or a grill can be easily, and relatively cheaply, converted into a focal point within a garden. The same applies to patios, with brickwork helping to achieve patterned or rustic effects.

When used indoors, bricks can be an attractive option in terms of their aesthetic qualities. Providing that the correct types of brick are used, many homes can benefit from the refined look of an open brick based feature such as a fireplace. If a home owner with an older property seeks to uncover natural brick within their walls, this can also add a much more rural and traditional feel to a room.

If used tastefully and in accordance with the rest of the building, brickwork whether indoors or outdoors can add to the saleability of a property.

Ottokar Rosenberger, Sales and Marketing Director or Ratedpeople.com, commented: "As long as it suits the character of the building, brickwork can be a great way of increasing the saleability of a home. It's durability as an indoor building material provides a great way of adding a natural touch to a room whilst ensuring that such a feature has longevity.
