Oftentimes, the lintel above garage door openings can begin to sag over periods of time. Is it more common in two-car garages due to the higher pressure placed on the lintel to support a longer opening. However, regardless of the size of your garage, it is important to keep an eye out for sagging lintels. Sagging is a telltale sign that the lintel is failing and not providing adequate support to the structure. It is important that these issues get addressed quickly, as they can rapidly develop into more serious structural problems.

Sagging lintels can be a result of many things. These can be installation errors such as lack of space for the lintel to expand in warmer months, causing pressure on the structure, as well as environmental elements and deterioration over time. If left unaddressed, the structure can lose all support and collapse. This can be a major safety concern for those who may walk into and out of the garage, and can also cause damage to vehicles that may occupy the garage. If you notice signs of sagging lintels, be sure to contact a professional immediately.


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.
