Bay window

Postby jimmyfivebellies » Mon Jan 19, 2009 5:13 pm

The bay window at the front of my Victorian terrace has suffered some movement over the years, although I don't think that recently. As such, the bay, which is constructed out of something like sandstone, has become lopsided. It is as if the front has dropped by several inches, leaving the sandstone blocks at the top and at the sides sloping diagonally down rather than being in the same plane as the top of the window. The whole house has been rendered with pebbledash, so I have no idea what the external brickwork of the house is like and if this has been affected by the movement. Is it possible to straighten out the bay to make it more aesthetically pleasing, or is it best just to leave it and avoid damaging the house further?
