Arch Bar and Lintel Repair and Replacement

Arch bar or lintel corrosion can cause cracks in the brickwork surrounding windows and doors.

Arch bars and lintels are used to support structures such as windows, doors and other openings. Often constructed from steel, it is not uncommon to see old arch bars and lintels rusting and expanding. That’s because where an arch bar or lintel has not been galvanised, or where the flashing which should be protecting it has failed, moisture may penetrate the steel. As the steel corrodes and expands from the ingress of water, the result is often rust, brick cracking and potential structural damage. This is not only unsightly, but it could also represent a safety concern.

At Remedial, we specialise in the repair and replacement of key structural elements which will help to make your building structurally sound again. If you notice brick cracking, brick growth, corrosion and rust or see signs that your cavity flashing may be failing, contact us to discuss these issues.
