Lintel replaced over garage door

The old wooden lintel over the garage door has rotten away leaving the brick work over to sag and bow. It’s in quite a dangerous state.

First thing to do is hire an acrow bar, from Andy Hire, and get that brick work back to it’s level position & supported.

Having cleared out the old rotten lintel, I took the measurements for new concrete & wooden lintels, the wooden to sit behind the concrete one under the second course of bricks and over the garage door frame. I used wood so that I can screw the door frame back under to straighten.

Both lintels had to cut down to size.

Time to fit the lintels into place, I use slate to pack under, at the ends, and above to the brick work so I can get cement into the gap. It meant lifting the bricks further, so cranked up the acrow.

All looking good. Time to remove the acrow and get cement in. I use a method to get the cement into the space’s by using a builders bag and a sloppy mix, a bit like funneling icing onto a cake.

All good. Time to clear up and the brush off the drying cement.Ashtons Handyman ServicesAshtons Handyman Services

Looking good, certainly level & without the bow.
