You should check both before rebuilding a brick mailbox.

Sagging Lintel Repair/Replacement

Often, the garage lintel will sag in the middle and cracks in the brick will result generally in the center and at the ends. Often this can be lifted and repaired, but may require replacement of the steel lintel. Consult an engineer for assistance.

Brick Chimney Repair/Fireplace Repair

Brick chimney and fireplace repairs are common due to their exposure to heat and the weather, and their own weight. Fireplace faces and chimneys tend to lean out or separate from the wall. Also, loose brick and deteriorate are common above the roofline.

Brick Repair-Mortar Matching

Matching brick mortar is the most important part of any of these repairs. If the mortar is not properly matched, the repairs tend to stand out as a repair, and they may not last or cause additional damage to the bricks. Many brick repair companies provide their own mortar color matching services, but this is not matching the mortar type or composition. It is recommended to get mortar matching services from a testing lab to ensure a proper mortar mix for your repairs and tuckpointing of foundation settling cracks in your brick walls.
