A lintel is a horizontal beam, used to give structural strength and support around openings such as doors and windows. Lintels can either consist of metal, concrete or wood – and all are subject to deterioration. This makes lintel replacement a common masonry repair.
Trapped moisture will cause shelf angles or reinforced concrete lintels to weaken. The existing lintels are replaced with new epoxy coated steel lintels or concrete lintels.
