An initial inspection of the building showed rust stains at the window lintels, as well as vertical and horizontal cracks along brickwork nearby and fretting mortar.
If window lintels are rusted they need to be replaced otherwise the rust starts to cause structural damage to other parts of the building and spreads, ultimately become a safety issue.
When replacing window lintels it is important that they are replaced with hot-dip galvanized steel, which unlike other material, is more resistant to corrosion.
Conspar replaced the rusted window lintels of the building with hot-dip galvanized steel lintels and also carried out repointing of the nearby brickwork.
