Lintel Replacement:

Eventually steel lintels or shelf angles need to be repaired or replaced. A lintel is what actually supports the masonry units above any masonry opening. Typically the lintel is a steel lintel. Over time and lack of maintenance the lintels will rust and deteriorate. This causes the lintel to be unable to support the large load of masonry from above. As the steel lintel gives way to the load it will bend and cracks will occur at the corners of the masonry opening. If the lintel is not replaced with a new piece of steel the lintel will eventually completely fail and a section of the wall may come down. When the lintel begins to rust it expands also causing the brick to move and become displaced. Over time the rust builds up to a point where it can actually widen the joint and raise the brick out of place. Whether, the lintel is rusting to a point where the rust is an issue or if the lintel is deteriorated to a point where the lintel has rusted away, Bruno Construction Masonry, Inc. can provide you with the information needed to make a proper decision on to the masonry repairs your building may need.
