CRACKING BRICK

Aside from not giving your home the best curb appeal, cracks in the brick above your garage opening can be a sign that a deeper structural issue may be occuring. Although lintel brick cracks are common and can often be fixed by adding new mortar to keep the structure’s integrity intact, if cracks are appearing in the corners of your garage opening, that is an indication of lintel failure. Lintel failure occurs when pressure is too high or displaced, and it can no longer adequately support the structure. If left unfixed, these cracks can grow to the point where the structure can collapse in on itself. It is important to catch the cracks before they expand into a larger issue. If you are experiencing any sign of lintel failure in your brick, call the cracked garage door brick repair experts at Lintel Lift right away.

When cracking occurs in your brick structure, this allows room for bugs and water to enter. Both of these elements can wreak havoc and cause other structural damage to the opening of your garage. To prevent such damage, it is important to be on the lookout for cracks so you can address the issue before it’s too late. If gone undetected, other safety issues can arise, endangering those who occupy your garage space.

LINTELLIFT PRODUCTS

The LintelLift product is a patented steel garage door lintel system that is installed either after a lintel has begun to sag or during construction to prevent sagging in the future. It is a comprehensive system that has been designed and tested to guarantee the proper and permanent repair of a sagging garage lintel. While many garage lintels that support brickwork will not have any problems in the future, when the brick load is larger than average or when environmental conditions cause the support to weaken over time, it is important to have a system in place that can prevent damage to your home and the proper operation of your garage door.

GARAGE DOOR HEADER LIFT SYSTEM

Once installed, our patented product will ensure garage door lintels or headers will not sag. Under normal circumstances, when the lintel fails, it will cause the brick above the header to sag and eventually crack. Over time, this can lead to the header completely failing and the brickwork falling off the house. Our system addresses this issue by adding much needed support underneath the sagging lintel.

The LintelLift system can also be installed during construction of the home and pre-stressed ahead of laying the brickwork. Once the mortar is cured, it can be released and will prevent future sagging of the lintel.

LintelLift products are sold as complete packages to repair a single sagging lintel or as individual parts. The kit includes a top beam, two side columns, and the decorative covers as well as all hardware required for a clean installation.
