Lintel Failure, Lintel Repair

Lintels come in various designs and are constructed from different materials but all carry out the same task; to support a structure above them within an opening.

Lintel Failure is a common structural defect amongst properties of all ages and constructions and Newman’s regularly carry out lintel failure surveys in order to establish the extent of lintel failure and the risk it poses.

Lintel failure can lead to the collapse of the masonry it is supporting with catastrophic effect. Lintel failure is often recognised by diagonal stepped cracking which is similar to subsidence but should not be confused as subsidence.

Traditional methods of lintel repair are costly and time consuming with many builders believing the only way to restore the structural integrity is to remove the lintel prop the masonry above and rebuild it.

Using modern methods of repair Newman’s can repair lintels by installing Twistfix Helical rods installed in the bed joint above the lintel creating beams above which support the masonry. With fast curing resins lintels can be propped into their original position and fixed saving the aesthetics of the property and time and money.
