Window's Lintel Installation, Brick Replacement
Before and After
The window company removed bricks.
But did not install a lintel, or replace the brick.
My job: install lintel, replace brick.
Avoid collapsing the wall, and window damage.
Here is the new window, and the supports left by the window crew.
The absence of a lintel meant they needed wood supports.
But the supports are in the way of putting in a lintel.
And the brick above the window is cracked, wanting to drop.
New Supports for the Brick
4x4 beams on either side, and clamps in the middle.
Now I have an opening to put in the lintel.
Clamps Hold the Brick Up
The wood supports are no longer blocking the lintel's installation.
