    Default from Michael in Gary, Indiana

    I found your page because I have an issue with a rusty, 18' lintel above my double wide garage. I do a lot of woodwork, cabinet making, painting and home maintainence, always looking for ways I can do things myself if possible. However, the lintel problem is way beyond my capabilities, and I am looking for a way to replace it, or at least shore it up until I can get it replaced.

    It needs to be replaced because half of the lintel is badly rusted and is sagging about 1 1/2 inches below the bottom layer of bricks. It is not an angle iron lintel, it is an I beam with a flat bar welded to the bottom of the beam.
