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.
