Gap between render beads and lintel

Recommended Posts

We have render coming down onto a bellcast bead above windows. There's a gap between the bead and the lintel. Can anyone recommend something fill this gap?

Could do. I think that could be hard to get looking neat.

 

I was hoping to use some form of caulk or something. If black, I could then paint the lintel black. If ivory could match render. Needs to be exterior grade though obviously

I can't work out why there is a gap, but it may be good to cloak the lintel and the gap it in whatever material the windows are finished in.

The lintel doesn't quite come to the face of the blockwork and then the render bead is pressed into the render basecoat. The gap is about 8mm.
