Stone & Lintel Repair & Replacement

Stone & Lintel failure can be the root cause of many masonry-related issues on a wall. Rusting lintels tend to expand vertically and horizontally, causing cracks in the mortar and/or brick. This can potentially destabilize the structure of the wall.  Additionally, lackluster or improper flashing may hasten the deterioration process. This can also allow water to penetrate the inside of the building and result in costly water damage.

We offer stone walls repair and replacement services in the greater part of Boston. Give us a call to get your walls fixed.


Damaged lintel causes the masonry to lose structure

Early signs of lintel failure include cracked bricks or cracked exterior walls around a window or a door. As the damage progresses, the lintel will start to visibly sag. If you notice cracked or stressed bricks on your home, contact AMN Masonry for a free inspection. We specialize in lintel replacement and brick, concrete, wood, or stone lintel repair and are more than happy to help with your project.

Lintel failure is a common problem with lintels of all types and in properties of all ages. As time passes, lintels can fail and sag, causing the masonry above them to drop and crack. This causes the door or window to lose structural integrity, and the overhead masonry can potentially collapse as a result. Contact AMN Masonry today to get started on your brick, wood, or stone lintel repair.

  • Improper installation
