La Vergne Brick and Lintel Repair
Delivering Repairs You Can Rely On
Failing garage lintels may affect the structural integrity of your home, office, or building. Lintels above the garage, also found above doors, windows, and other openings, help support the loads above them. Over time, these elements can face wear and tear, leading to issues like cracks in brick or a sagging lintel. It's important to address lintel problems early on to help prevent these small repairs from becoming even bigger ones.

You should be aware of a few telltale signs of lintel and brick damage to help you notice potential problems in your building's structure. Recognizing these indicators early can be advantageous in addressing issues promptly.
Some of the signs of brick and lintel damage include:
- Stair step cracking: One common sign of brick and lintel damage is stair step cracking in bricks above the opening, which can occur around mortar joints or within the brick itself. These cracks may start small but can widen over time as the lintel damage continues to worsen.
- Cracks in windowpanes: Lintel damage can lead to stress on adjacent counterparts, such as windows. Cracks in windowpanes can be indicators of underlying issues with lintels among other issues.
- Water infiltration: Another telltale sign is water infiltration around garage doors or windows. Failing lintels can allow water to seep into your building, causing unwanted interior damage.
- Sagging walls and difficulty operating doors: Sagging walls above a garage and difficulty opening garage doors are clear signs that the garage lintel may be compromised. Upper-level rooms may experience sagging perimeter walls above large openings when a lintel is failing. These issues can affect the appearance and potentially the safety of the structure if left unaddressed.
The Need for Timely Inspection and Repair
Neglecting brick and lintel damage can lead to a range of issues. That’s why it’s imperative to address these concerns promptly.
Timely inspection and repair are critical for several reasons, including the following:
- Maintaining appearance: Addressing brick and lintel damage promptly helps maintain the aesthetic appeal of your building. Cracks and structural issues can detract from its visual appeal.
- Maintaining structural integrity: Repairing damaged lintels improves the structural integrity of your building. Neglecting these issues can lead to more extensive damage and costly repairs.
- Safety: Ensuring that lintels are in good condition is an essential standard safety practice that protects you, your visitors, and customers. Sagging lintels or damaged bricks can create hazards.
- Avoiding costly damage: Leaving brick and lintel problems unchecked can result in more significant and expensive damage over time. Addressing these issues early can save you money in the long run.
