I wouldnt say thats expansion,,its just the weight of the concrete porch which has moved over time....I cant give a price etc. as you will need to post the job in question on MyBuilder.

Hi changing a lintel over a typical front door would take 2 men a working day, this would include replacing any brickwork and block work (should it not be more than half
meter sq or longer would be required) , mixing mortar, propping etc.
thanks.
