Supporting wall loading

Postby Toffee99 » Thu Aug 01, 2013 7:28 pm


I am after some information regarding changing the window in the attached photo for french doors. However I am worried about the loading on the supporting wall between the door and window once the brickwork has been removed from under the window. Can anybody point me in the right direction of what calculations are required?

no calculations are needed the loading is the same, the brickwork under the window has no load bearing weight apart from the window the lintol stress is the same once removed. Just cut the external brickwork with a diamond saw before removing the window, just order the French doors and cill reinforced with steel to give extra support if your worried
