The year has only just begun but these bungling builders have made some epic construction calamities that you just have to see.

Bad builder blunders costs the UK an estimated £300 million in repairs each year. Even with careful planning and the best intentions these 'professionals' have seriously cocked up.

Check out our gallery below and always be on the lookout for a potential builder fail coming your way!
