Arch Bar and Lintel Repairs

If you notice cracks in the brickwork surrounding windows and doors, arch bar or lintel corrosion may be to blame.

Arch Bar and Lintel Repairs

Arch bars and lintels are used to support structures such as windows, doors and other openings. As they are usually constructed from steel, it is not uncommon to see old arch bars and lintels rusting and expanding.

Where an arch bar or lintel has not been galvanised, or where the flashing which should be protecting it has failed, allowing moisture to penetrate the steel, rust and structural damage is likely. The corrosion of the steel will cause it to expand which may result in cracks to the surrounding brickwork, allowing water to penetrate the structure.

If you notice this occurring to your structure, Contact Remedial who can implement a solution for you.
