RETROFIT – how to support brick veneer with bracket angle / steel lintel
We have a small renovation project. We are adding 2″ of rigid insulation to the exterior.
This is pushing the brick veneer past the existing concrete foundation. So we need to find a way to support the masonry with a steel lintel.
I have seen stuff like this for large commercial projects. Does anyone have any solutions that could be obtained from a big box store?
My other idea is to cast small footings and span the lintel between them. But it would be great to find a solution that supports the masonry from the sheathing.
we only need like 40′ linear ft.
