Tile Top Letter Box

I saw this letter box the other day on a main road near my house.

From a distance I thought tiling the top seemed like a good way to stop water penetration . . . . however when I got closer I realised a couple of big issues:

    • Overhanging tiles aren’t going to be very durable.
    • The first time anyone bangs into the top the tiles are going to break leaving a sharp edge.

Definitely a construction FAIL.
