How to recognize a failing garage lintel

The most common sign of a failing garage door lintel is vertical or stairstep cracking in the brick above your garage. These cracks can appear above the outer corners of your garage door frame or in the middle of your garage door header, indicating a lack of support from the lintel below.

Signs of garage door lintel failure:

  • Cracks in the bricks above the garage door frame
  • Sagging or bowing in the middle of the header above your garage lintel — look for the “smile!”
  • Sagging bricks over your garage lintel
  • Gaps between your garage lintel and trim

Why is my garage lintel cracking and sagging?

A lintel is a horizontal support beam spanning across the top of your garage door opening, acting as a shelf to supports the bricks above it. Garage door lintels are most commonly made of steel. When a lintel begins to fail, you’ll often notice cracking or sagging. Though they can sag due to corrosion over time, most garage lintels fail because they were simply undersized for the job in the first place.

If you ignore a sagging garage door lintel, it can worsen over time, potentially leading to falling bricks, moisture damage or even pest infestation. You can learn more about garage lintel problems here.
