Bricklayers construct walls, partitions, fireplaces, chimneys and other structures from brick. They also use other masonry materials, such as concrete, cinder of gypsum block: precast panels made of brick, cement, tile, stone or marble, or structural tile of terra cotta. Install the brick linings of industrial kilns and furnaces. In laying brick, a bricklayer spreads a layer of soft mortar. Applies mortar to the end of the last brick laid or to one end of the brick to be laid. Places the brick on the bed of the mortar and works it into the desired position. Then removes excess mortar from face of brick. At fixed points along the wall checks the surface with a mason’s level to make sure the bricks are lined up. A plumb line is also used to check vertical alignment. Using the point of a trowel or a special finishing tool, trims the mortar between the bricks to achieve a neat appearance.
