My Garage has a side wooden window and I want to remove it and cut out some brickwork to install a UPVC door in it's place.
I am asking for advice from someone that has experience in brick cutting.
The wall is 1 brick thick and about 2 1/2 feet each side.
I could buy a hand saw suitable for cutting bricks Â£12.99.
I could hire an electric 9 inch disc cutter Â£15 a day plus VAT
I could hire a petrol disc cutter for Â£38 a day plus VAT
I could hire an Aligator saw Â£38 a day plus VAT
hi,the petrol cutter will go through brickwork very easily,it also can be joined to a hose pipe to minimise the dust. fix a 2x1 batten to the wall and use this as a guide for the blade,you will then get a straight cut.let us know how you get on.
