Broken window arches and lintel repair

Both arches and lintels have a huge job to do. To bear the load and support the integrity of your walls. But as time passes, the arches or lintels that sit above your windows could wear out – even if they’re made of tougher materials like stone, brick, concrete or even steel.


Arches and lintels can crack, bend, drop or even collapse for a wide variety of reasons. They’re usually a symptom of a problem that you can’t see with your naked eyes. Movement in the ground. Dampness in the walls. It might even be poor craftsmanship from way back when.


In any case, arch and lintel repair should be your top priority. It’s best to get them inspected the moment you see them.


The last thing you want is for the whole wall to come crashing down, out of the blue.
