    Hello,

    Car has reversed into a dwarf wall that separates our driveways, only 4 bricks high.

    Has knocked about 7-8 bricks off and damaged the capping stone.

    What kind of cost am I looking at to get this fixed?

    Thanks

    Depends who you want to do it. Brickies tend to work in multiples of 1 day, and do bigger jobs so may be hard to get. Maybe 150-200.
    Or a general handyman would do it for less, but you’d need to know he can lay bricks and point up or it’ll look rubbish.

    Would be happy for a handyman type who knows what he is doing to fix it. Its at me mams house in Neasden area. Just need to let the driver know the cost, otherwise they can go through their insurance. Luckily we caught her in act!

    Ahh shame, how much would you charge for something like that. £90?

    Cool thanks Stuart. Thats sounds reasonable. Will let them know ballpark figure and then see what they want to do.

    Cheers!
