But We Have New Windows Installed

 

 

I got a chance to look at some new windows that were install not too long ago with a wood rot problem. The problem is not in the new windows but the original framing and trim of the original window. The retrofitted windows should have included a better job of cleaning up the rotted wood in the wood members before installing the windows.

Slap em up, get em paid for.

So, the question remains - do they want the original company to come back to do it right, or get a pro, like you, to do it right now?

A lot of money was spent for new windows and the job was not done correctly, now it's costing more money.

 Good Saturday morning Tom. Yes, I've seen some real sloppy installations when it comes to new windows. I have even seen them installed upside down.

Good morning Tom.  A sloppy job by someone else just means more work for you.

Good morning Tom,

Amazing what we can find wrong with updates that have been done haphazardly.

Make yourself a great day.

I think they are still waffling over who is to do the work Kathy Streib ; regardless, I hope they choose someone good.
