According to the latest data gathered by ServiceSeeking.com.au, the bricklaying industry’s average rate went up approximately 5% over the last financial year. From $50/m2 in FY14, the average rate is now at $52.50/m2. This marginal increase is reflective of the rising inflation levels of services across NSW.
Both budget and premium rates also exhibited higher prices this year. Budget bricklaying services now cost $48.75/m2 while premium rates stand at $81.25/m2. This shows a 22% and 16% increase for budget and premium bricklaying services respectively.
Despite the increase, bricklaying rates in NSW are still relatively cheap in comparison to the average price of bricklaying in Qld, the state that has the highest average bricklaying prices. On the other hand, WA bricklaying contractors charge the lowest fees for their services.
