Lintel failure

Causes

 

Failure of a lintel will be due to either decay, fracture or loss of support to the supporting abutments allowing the arch to spread or drop.

 

Symptoms

 

Look for misplaced arch segments, sagging courses above the arch and cracks in the abutments.

 

Treatment

 

A combination of a beam and grout ties can be used to effect a non-visible repair.
