As Warrington builders, we undertake blockwork for structural alterations to blocking up doorways and windows; creating window and doorway openings, which is often done for a number of different home improvement projects. For example, a room can be made much larger by moving a door from the middle of a wall to the end, freeing up both sides of the wall around the door, creating much more space. Rooms can be reconfigured further by removing a load-bearing wall and replacing it with an RSJ steel beam which is significantly different from removing interior non-load bearing walls.
Where a lintel is not present or is inadequate such as timber, then there's the possibility that the wall ‘sags’ over the opening over a period of time and visible cracks will start to appear. If the wall is built on top of the window frame, then the load can sometimes cause the frame to bend and occasionally result in glass panes cracking and in extreme cases, there is the possibility that the brickwork can become loose and even fall out. Lintels are commonly made from steel, concrete, and stone. As home improvement builders in Warrington, we can provide a no-obligation structural repairs remedial concrete and steel lintel installation quotation following from a structural engineers or buildings surveyor report or specification.
