    Hi everyone

    Have just removed a double pvc door into my conservatory ( yes I know i should have one but the conservatory roof is being turned into a solid one so no cold )

    My question is where the door is used to be a bay window and previous owner removed it put in a double pvc door now I have removed it, it looks as though a galvanised lintel is in place?

    These things ok? My wall are cavity if that makes a difference

    Please see pics

    Patters1978, good evening.

    Looks suspiciously like a so called "Catnic lintel"

    Have a look on the interweb for these things [they are actually quite good??]

  4. It's fine, as Ken says, it's a catnic lintel designed to sit in the cavity, and support the bricks either side of it. You'll need to fix a piece of plasterboard over the hole, possibly with foam adhesive supported till it goes off, and then get everything replastered, but it's all manageable.
