Hi there.

Would anyone know of a builder who would be willing to repair three windows in the extension of my house for insertion of lintels?
Looking for a basic repair job- nothing too fancy.

Thanks

do you need new lintels or are the lintels weak and are you getting cracking in the brickwork?

Have you heard of helibars? Don't change the lintels but support the brickwork. We are going down this route.

I would look for a joiner or carpenter for this kind of job.

Thanks.

The windows don't have lintels in them and hence the brickwork is sagging onto the windows. Asm looking for help in finding someone who can fix either lintels or a helibar into/onto them.
