Common Causes of Garage Lintel Damage

Garage Lintel Repair Options

There are several garage lintel repair options available, depending on the severity of the damage, the load on the lintel, and the budget. Here are some of the most common garage lintel repair options:

Steel Lintel Repair

This is a popular option for repairing damaged lintels because it is effective and relatively cost-efficient. The existing lintel and masonry is jacked up to its previous position. Then, specialized steel columns and beams are attached to the garage door opening. This type of repair isn't appropriate for all situations.

Lintel Replacement

This option is typically used for more severe lintel damage, such as when the lintel is cracked or has become severely corroded. To replace the lintel, the damaged masonry is first removed. Jacks are used to shore up the existing masonry. Then the damaged linted is removed and a new lintel is installed. Then the masonry around the garage door is repaired.

Garage Lintel Repair Process

The garage lintel repair process involves several steps to ensure a successful repair. Here is an overview of the process:

1. Inspection

The first step is to inspect the garage lintel for damage and identify the cause of the problem. We'll assess the lintel's weight load and check for any signs of corrosion or structural damage.

2. Repair option selection

Based on the inspection results, we will recommend the appropriate repair option, such as steel lintel lift and repair or lintel replacement. The selection will depend on the severity of the damage, the weight load of the lintel, and the budget.

3. Repair execution

The repair process involves restoring the lintel's structural integrity by lifting it back to its original position and reinforcing it or replacing it with a new one. We will use specialized equipment and tools to execute the repair, such as steel columns and beams or a garage lintel repair system.

4. Final inspection

After completing the repair, we'll do a final inspection to ensure your garage lintel is functioning correctly and restored to its original position.
