Lintel Replacement Before & After

  • Before: A truck backed into this I-beam causing it to shift.
    After: The I-beam had to be moved back into place and the masonry reset.
  • Before: This is another photo of a sagging angle iron. Notice the large gap between the steel and the window frame.
    After: The installation of a new lintel diminishes the chances of water infiltration at the window seam.
  • Before: This lintel was completely corroded and bowing causing the soldier masonry above it to deflect.
    After: A new angle iron was primed, painted and installed with flashing and drip wicks for proper drainage. The soldier course of brick was reset to a plumb condition.
  • Before: The I-Beam supporting the 2nd floor porch was sagging along with all of the masonry.
    After: All masonry work above the I-Beam had to be removed in order for the new I-Beam to be installed.
  • Before: A truck backed into this I-beam causing it to shift.
    After: The I-beam had to be moved back into place and the masonry reset.
  • Before: A truck pulled out the entire I-beam and all the masonry above it collapsed.
    After: A new I-beam was installed and all the masonry above it had to be replaced.

Lintels (angle irons), I-Beams and C-Channels with welded plates are all used to bridge openings within masonry walls. They are imperative in carrying the cumulative load of multi-floor heights of masonry. If these crucial steel members corrode and bow, the structural stability of the masonry wall becomes questionable. In addition, all openings should have a proper flashing system installed to divert water out and away from the interior of the opening. Flashing with drip wicks are necessary components to keep steel lintels, C-Channels, and I-Beams from corroding.

Failing lintels are the cause of many City of Chicago violations. Before your masonry building gets a citation or worse, becomes a public hazard with costly liabilities, contact Arrow Masonry. Let Arrow Masonry’s experienced staff offer you a thorough assessment of what your masonry building requires to become watertight and structurally sound.
