Lintel Failure - Exterior or Structural

Mike Lamb

Recommended Posts

I wrassled with this some years ago. Sometimes both depending on how bad they are, but mostly, like >95%, go into Exterior.

I do that because the repair options, cost, and general hassle are about exterior masonry. That's how people think about it anyway, if they think at all.

In my inventory descriptions of all the crap in a building, I put them under Structural, though. They're a structural element. But, my format is such that I can describe them in either place and it makes sense in the list of defects. The beauty of designing my own system......I can make it any way I want.

So, I got a dichotomy in reportage that I lose absolutely zero sleep over.
