Several of the lintels on my house are faulty, creating a "step" effect on the brickwork above. The bricks don't appear to be fully attached to the mortar.
Advent Construction Solutions Ltd provided an efficient, friendly service that solved my problem very promptly. I would happily recommend Advent to anybody. Every step or the work was explained to me prior to commencement of the job. Very happy!

DO NOT use this company or individual. Left me high and dry, took all my money and less than half job done. Cost me nearly £15k. Cannot get any replies to any correspondance. Workmanship very poor, had to have a lot of it redone to pass Building Regulations. Very likeable and plausible so BEWARE!
