Sometimes during measured survey work, you often cannot measure elements such as walls due to access and safety issues. Often you only need an approximate measurement and can use photographs to count bricks to get an approximate length.

Using our free online brick length and height calculator you can quickly count the bricks and work out an approximate height or width of a wall. Our calculator allows you to change the brick/block size, mortar gaps etc to get your estimate as accurate as possible.

You can find the calculator below!
