Coastal Wall Ties provide an expert lintel replacement service throughout Sussex and Hampshire.
What are lintels
Lintels are installed to support the weight of the brickwork above openings on windows and doors. They are generally made from steel or concrete, but can also be made from wood, brick or stone. They may be installed on the external wall only, or as one complete lintel that sits on both the external and internal walls.
Why do lintels fail
A lintel will rust, expand or rot over time, causing cracking which in turn reduces support to the brickwork above it.
Some properties don’t have lintels above the windows or doors due to the installation of metal framed windows and/or doors (during the original build) that acted as a lintel. Over the course of a property’s history, owners may have replaced these windows or doors for modern UPVC units, often with no advice from the window fitters that a lintel is needed. In time this lack of support creates sagging of the brickwork, putting pressure on the door or window frame itself.
At some stage in your property’s life it may be necessary for lintel replacement above your windows and doors to ensure that the brickwork remains fully supported.
