The most common sign of a failing garage door header, or lintel, is vertical or stairstep cracking in the brick veneer above your garage. These cracks appear above the outer corners of your garage door frame or in the middle of your garage door header, where support has been lost. You may also notice sagging or bowing, usually in the middle of your garage door header.
Your garage lintel is the horizontal support beam spanning across the top of your garage. It acts as a shelf, supporting the bricks above. Lintels can be brick, concrete, stone, or wood. When the support of a lintel is compromised, you'll notice symptoms of cracking or sagging. Most garage lintels are simply undersized to hold the weight of the brick above, so they begin to sag or bow over time under the pressure. Other reasons for garage lintel failure include corrosion over time and moisture damage.
If you ignore a sagging garage door lintel and allow the problem to worsen, your garage may be vulnerable to bricks falling, moisture damage, and even pest infestation. Learn more about garage lintel problems here.
