We were asked if it would be possible to knock through a wall in an elderly customer’s kitchen, to install some French doors and make access to her garden easier for her.
Due to it being a solid wall this would require internal and external lintels, to stop the brickwork above from dropping and causing problems to the structure of the building.
The doors had to be in a very specific position in the kitchen, as they would fit directly in between two worktop surfaces and then plastered around.
The brickwork was cut, then acro props and strong boys were installed to maintain the structure of the house, before removing the brickwork. Once the brickwork had been removed, it was now time to install both internal and external lintels.
Once these lintels were in position, we could go ahead and fit the new French doors into the brickwork.
Please take a look at the photos below of the brickwork before removal and the finished job of the new French doors. Safe to say, the customer was very pleased with her new easy access French doors.
