These Are The Time-Tested Methods We Use To Install A Window In A Brick Wall


The first step Fairfax Contractor in cutting out a brick for a window involves installation of a lintel just above the hole you want to make in the wall. For this, you need to cut a gap in the wall between the bricklayers using an angle grinder. The mortar layer between the bricks needs to be penetrated with the grinder, chisel, and hammer. After that, you can push the lintel into the gap and cover the outer portion with mortar to match the other mortar lines on the wall. Then mark the other outlines of the hole you want to create.


The angle grinder once again needs to be used for cutting into the outline drawn on the wall. You do not need to push too hard because the tool works efficiently. It is advisable to wear a mask because of the excessive dust which is generated while cutting into the brick wall.


After we cut into the wall along the outline, you need to dislodge the bricks by cutting into the mortar. The mortar loosens quickly because it is softer in texture than bricks. When holes are drilled into the mortar, the bricks automatically come off without much effort.


The last step is to take out the bricks from the hole in case all of them do not come out when the mortar is drilled into. Knocking out bricks is possible with a hammer and bolster. You need to be careful while hitting around the edges of the hole so that the other bricks which are not supposed to be moved remain intact.
