Steel Lintels and Beams Installation
Many homeowners overlook or forget about the critical structural elements that keep the house together underneath the concrete or stone. Steel beams and lintels are crucial for structural integrity and keeping bricks and stones from falling or sagging. These get eroded or damaged over time and need replacing.
We recommend that you have your home or commercial building inspected by a professional and licensed mason at least once every 2-3 years for sound shelf-angles, steel lintels and universal beams. We provide ongoing maintenance for our residential and commercial clients which include this inspection and restoration/repairs/installations where necessary.
