No support or lintel above the window. Bricks falling loose and the whole thing kinda compressing down on the window frame. From the attic side it looked like the bricks were stuck directly to the OSB.

How would one go about fixing this?

It might be my imagination but there seems a vertical crack to the right of the arch as well as some framing issues on that gable wall. That would meet my criteria to go 'whole hog' at everything wrong with that veneer installation, if not the framing too.

Yes, that is some amateur framing around the gable vent. That is a scary picture.

I'll bet there are hidden defects in those walls.

I'll bet there is water damage to the OSB around those windows as well.

It is a shame that someone would apply that much brick to a house and not learn the basics of masonry and home construction first. [:-thumbd]

How does something this bad really happen? I mean, didn't someone with a quarter of a brain oversee some small portion of the home being built? It's not like the dude went to lunch and the home was bricked when he got back.
