Well not all of it.
I was sat at the computer when it suddenly sounded like the tiles were sliding off the roof. I looked out the window and realised it was the canopy above the front door which had fallen off the wall. It looks a bit like this:
On closer inspection it appears to have been held in with 8 screws which were only about 2½ inches into the brickwork. The gap between my front door and the footpath is only about 3 feet and the canopy ended up on the footpath - anyone passing by could have been been seriously hurt and I'm trying not to think about my daughter going out the door and slammed it behind her causing it to come down.
The house is only 5 years old - I moved in when it was new - and there are many of these canopies on the development I live on. They are still building here so I am going to the sales centre tomorrow to see if I can pique the builders interest. Hopefully they will take this seriously as this thing took three of us to move it even after all the tiles had fallen off so the consequences of one of these falling onto someone would be pretty.
The question is, do I have any comeback with the builder in getting this sorted, would it be covered by the NHBC guarantee? I could go down the insurance route but this will end up costing me incrased premiums for years. Not putting it back is not an option as the cheapskates have put breezeblocks in the wall in the area where the canopy sits.
