Lintel painting service

Lintel painting

Lintels are an essential element of the architecture and part of the structure of all buildings. However, they are still little known of the general population. They are actually pieces of metal installed in the superior part of the openings (windows and doors) in building walls made of masonry. They are used to disperse the weight away from the opening. We recommend that you verify your lintels’ condition each 5 years or so.

Obviously, the climatic conditions will have a big impact on their durability. However, it is always less expensive to ask a professional to make an inspection instead of waiting that the damage is too advanced. When it is too late and the lintel is really weakened, the correction costs are literally astronomic because we then need to undo the masonry to repair the wall, lintel and door and window.

The importance of lintel maintenance

Neglecting to do the maintenance of one’s lintels can be extremely dangerous. Indeed, as the lintels support the weight of a building’s façade, a weakness in the lintel can cause collapsing of your wall in the mid-term. This is explained by the fact that the water will infiltrate, and during frost, will turn to ice which will make your external wall break sooner or later. If you don’t know when was the last time someone checked your lintels, it may be time to repair or change them. We estimate that from 65% to 80% of Montreal lintels are in bad condition.

To know if your lintels are in good condition, you only have to examine them. As they are made of steel, they are probably dotted with rust. In our opinion, builders did a sloppy job on the territory, and they have been doing so for a long time, meaning they delivered lintels with a gray or red oxide primer while they should have added a protective coating to make the lintels weather-resistant. If your lintels have a brick color (red oxide) a mate finish, and are dotted with rust, you are part of the thousands of Montreal inhabitants who have a similar problem. To avoid problems and headaches, ask a professional to do the maintenanceIMG_1389

    Our over-50-year-old home was in need of some interior and exterior painting, as well as some wood siding replacing. FinDecor’s team of painters was great! Their professional work was both meticulous and efficient. Thanks to FinDecor, our home looks great once again, both inside and out. We recommend them without hesitation!

    The final product of Dave’s team of painters is terrific. I thank you warmly! It is important to me to express criticism of someone’s work so it can be resolved. But it is equally important to compliment the work when the issue is resolved. Thank you so much for coming by yesterday to repaint the walls. I appreciate your timely response to our phone calls. You are a true professional! It was a pleasure working with you and I greatly appreciate your true desire to make your clients happy. This is a great quality. Again, thank you for your professionalism.

    Dealing with Dave and his team has been an extremely positive experience. They delivered on every promise made and went beyond our expectations. When I think about the final result and FinDecor’s performance, the words ‟professional”, ‟extremely efficient”, ‟masters of the trade”, come to my mind. There are not enough words to express my pleasure; they are the best!
