The Importance Of Addressing Garage Lintel Issues

Ignoring a failing garage lintel or cracks above the garage can have significant consequences, including decreasing your home’s value and curb appeal. More importantly, it can pose a serious safety risk to your family. Protect your home and loved ones with the patented LintelLift System.

The most common sign of a failing garage door is vertical or stairstep cracking in the brick above your garage. These cracks can appear above the outer corners of your garage door frame or in the middle of your garage door header, indicating a lack of support from the lintel below.

Understanding Garage Lintel Failure

A lintel is a horizontal support beam spanning across the top of your garage door opening, acting as a shelf to support the bricks above it. Garage door lintels are typically made of steel.

When this element begins to fail, you’ll often notice cracking or sagging. Most fail because they are undersized for the job in the first place. Ignoring a sagging garage door can lead to worsening issues, such as falling bricks, moisture damage or pest infestation.

Signs of garage door lintel failure include:

  • Cracks in the bricks above the garage door frame
  • Sagging or bowing in the middle of the header above your garage – look for the “smile!”
  • Sagging bricks over your garage door
  • Gaps between your garage lintel and trim

Our permanent garage repair solution can keep your door looking its best. Baird Foundation Repair offers warrantied garage lintel repair options that fix the problem permanently.
