ARCHBARS & LINTELS
Coope Build is now run by Manly Remedial Building.
Arch bars and lintels support the brickwork above and around openings in a building the likes of doors, windows etc… They are there to support both the interior and exterior of a structure. Arch bar replacement and repair is crucial in preventing unsafe hazards in these heavy load-bearing areas as lintels are the beams that support the weight of the structure above the opening.
Often, the lintels / arch bars becomes rusted, which causes holes and cracks to appear. This then allows water to creep into the cracks, creating more damage to the area around the structure’s openings. When the lintel / arch bars around the structure’s opening begin to expand due to corrosion, it creates an unattractive bulge on the structure to which repairs then become necessary.
