Structural repairs to a property in Burntwood

This property in Burntwood had structural issues where the brickwork had started to drop causing the doors to catch on the frame and not open properly. This is something we see on a regular basis where timber windows are replaced with upvc windows and suitable lintels to support the brickwork are not installed. Timber windows in older properties are part of the structural design but plastic upvc on its own isn’t strong enough to take the load and so a steel or concrete lintels are needed .
