What is Lintel Lift?
The LintelLift is pre-engineered to lift a straight plane. Heavier lifts are also available upon special order. The columns on the sides are designed with lift bolts that are adjusted to contact the ends of the angle iron with matching machined pivot points. This allows the column to be stood up one end at a time and fastened to the existing wood door frames. Once both columns are vertical with the LintelLift under the sagging existing lintel, and outside the brick wall, the bolts are tightened, lifting the load while removing the camber. Once straightened, the sagging lintel and brick is now lifted and stabilized against potential future settlement. At this point, the raw iron will be covered with a vinyl kit specially made for fit.
Why You Need Lintel Lift
When a garage door lintel fails, it causes the brick wall being supported to sag – leaving a noticeable crack right above the garage door. The LintelLift System fixes this issue by adding support underneath the sagging lintel.
