Masonry is supported by lintels above wall openings, like door and windows. Usually it’s made of steel angles, channels, beams, etc.
The most common reason of replacing lintel is corrosion of the steel parts. Corrosion can expand up to 10 times. It can be very harmful for masonry because of the enormous weight and the force acting on the neighbouring wall which can cause cracking and movements.
Old and corroded lintels may require removal and replacement with the new galvanized steel.

“Mark’s Tuckpointing has a great staff that provides free estimates at a reasonable rate. They are willing to work within your time table.My wish is the the Condo Association sees things as I do. They did a great job!”

“Peter was very helpful throughout the process. Him and his team did a great job tuckpointing and fixing our condo building’s gutter. Their price was reasonable and they did not try to convince us to do additional work (like some contractors did). We were very happy with the quality of their work.”
