LEDGE AND LINTEL

Did you know that it is now possible to buy genuine replicas lintel, ledge and custom decorative element?

At A.BLANCHETTE MAÇONERIE INC, we work with the best ledge and lintels manufacturers of the region that will reproduce the original item you want to replace.

 

Those decorative elements are mainly part of the heritage architecture of Montreal (Early 20th Century) where they are found especially around the doors and windows in the edge of the roofs and sometimes inserted into a brick or stone wall as decoration.

 

CRACKS: lintel, ledge and masonry joint.

When those crack or get damaged, they can cause water infiltration into the masonry that will contribute to the deterioration of the building. They would then heavily lay on windows and doors and distort the framing. That is why it is important to replace them with equivalent products.
