Lintel Failure demands Action
Why is Lintel Repair so important? Lintel failure is common but it only the beginning of many costly repairs if not addressed quickly. Once a lintel fails it begins to sag and lift. Why is that a threat? Sagging lintels will not support the bricks above and create a path for water to penetrate your buildings shell. Once water infiltrates it will cause drywall or plaster to fail, wood to rot and insulation to mold. When irons heave or lift, they will damage masonry units and allow water to enter each unit and cause rapid break down.
Make sure you find a qualified professional to handle your project.

SIGNS OF A PROBLEM
Lintel Repair Or Repointing?
There is often an opportunity to repoint around a lintel when failure first begins. But as time goes on Lintel Replacement becomes the only option.
Will Caulking Help?
If water infiltration around openings is the issue, caulking is a possible solution. In both cases it is important to get the right pro involved. Not just any masonry contractor will do. Some contractors focus on new construction. Masonry repair and restoration is different for many reasons.
