Have you noticed spider web-like cracks above your garage door opening? Horizontal and diagonal garage door frame cracks can be an alarming sign that your lintel may be failing and in need of immediate repair. It doesn’t take an engineer to spot this issue, but it definitely requires immediate action. If your lintel is supporting a brick wall, it is common for cracks to appear diagonally, starting in the corners, if the lintel is failing. If the structure is past the point of cracking and has started crumbling, it is especially crucial that you have an expert come inspect the structure for lintel damage repair options. In cases like this, the safety of those who occupy the space beneath the garage opening, as well as vehicles, can be at risk.

Aside from safety concerns, garage door frame cracks in your structure can make way for bugs and moisture to enter into your home. These elements can create deeper issues beyond outside structural damage. This is another reason why it is important to keep an eye out for garage door frame cracks, because the quicker the cracks are addressed, the less damage is done.


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.

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.
