The front porch on this house has seen better days. The top photo shows the upper portion of the roof pulling away from the house and an unstable rear support beam. The bottom photo shows a sinking front porch slab and clothes line being used to hold the bottom portion of the support beam in place. Clothes line is great for holding wet clothes. However, it’s not so great when used to help hold up your porch roof. The situation is a hazard waiting to happen and requires immediate repair work.
