Why is my garage lintel cracking and sagging?

A lintel is a horizontal support beam spanning across the top of your garagedoor opening, acting as a shelfto supports the bricks aboveit. 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 weresimply 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 damageor even pest infestation. You can learn more about garage lintel problems here.
