The Lintel Lift system is designed to work with all sizes of garage doors, making it a perfect solution to every home. The patented Lintel Lift system is engineered to be installed by certified service providers in 1 day, avoiding construction delays and job overages common with conventional repair techniques. Lintel Lift will completely support the current failing, unsafe lintel and the brick load above your garage door, using cambered, hardened steel beams much larger and thicker than what was used in the original construction of your home. The Lintel Lift steel lintel replacement system is a permanent repair; once it is installed no additional work is needed. Lintel Lift can also be installed when a home is being built, to strengthen the garage door lintel and prevent the need for any future repairs. Lintel Lift garage door header repairs are done in three easy steps by professional and certified contractors.

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. We have a growing network of dealers across the US that are trained to install the LintelLift system.

AREA PREPARATION & GARAGE LINTEL REINFORCEMENT

Before the installation process begins, the garage lintel will be inspected and reinforced as needed to prevent damage or collapse while the Lintel Lift system is installed. Some masonry and mortar may need to be removed to allow the brickwork to be returned to its original position. Any garage door openers will be removed allowing access to the wood framing. Pressure treated lumber may be added to square the opening allowing the Lintel Lift system to be flush mounted allowing complete and total.

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.

Side columns are an essential part of the Lintel Lift system, providing support for the lintel itself and transferring the engineered load completely to the home’s foundation. Some concrete at the base of the columns may need to be removed to ensure the lintel system is perfectly aligned and level. The Lintel Lift columns are then installed and securely fastened directly to the foundation and the house framing.

SIDE COLUMN INSTALLATION

LINTEL INSTALLATION

The new steel lintel replacement system is now ready to be installed above the structural steel columns. Patented lifting mechanisms are installed on both structural columns allowing the new cambered beam to be leveled. These lifting mechanisms, called jack screws, provide the exact amount of lift and support needed to return the sagging and cracked bricks back into their original location. Your garage span will now be completely supported and safe

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.
