Repair Sagging Brick Over Garage Doors

Solutions for a Sagging Lintel Above Garage Door

Sagging brick over garage doors

View of sagging lintel and cracked brick over 16-feet wide garage door opening

It has become rather common to see two-car garage doorways formed with a single opening that is 16- to 18-feet wide. Unfortunately, the brick veneer over these openings is usually supported by a typical 4×4 steel angle even though there is no rolled steel angle-shape made that can span 16 feet and support more than 3 feet brick height. A typical 4-inch steel angle is inadequate for any amount of brick when opening width is more than about 12 feet. Often an inadequately sized steel lintel leads to long-term sagging of the doorway and subsequent cracking of the brick veneer. A specially engineered repair can be implemented to correct these problems utilizing through-bolts into the existing framing headers and/or installation of steel support beams.
