Garage Gable End and Raising the Height of the Lintel

Postby The Artilleryman » Mon Sep 22, 2014 3:52 pm

I have a brick built detached garage, and shortly will be changing the garage door.

It would be usefull if I could raise the height of the lintel.

Firstly as it's gable ended, is the triangle of brickwork above the door structural ie is it supporting the pitched roof .

Secondly, if I raise the lintel by 300mm this now puts the top of the lintel 150mm above the top of the side walls - is this a problem?
