    Hi,

    I am bricking up a window with breezeblocks and a plasterer is coming to bond and then skim the new brickwork.

    How soon after the blocks are laid can this work be done?

    I am intending to do the plaster work the day after the bricks are laid.

    Is this too soon?

    thanks

    No problem as Joe says. Ive seen people build a garden wall, put the coping on and scratch coat it all the same day. The next day it was roughcasted,,,, true. I bet others guys on here have seen the same.
