Another Crisis......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I live in a really old house. I have triple windows in an area off my galley kitchen. The two on either side crank open, but the center one is stationery. I noticed on Sunday after coming home from a long work day. that the center one was shattered and it had a hole in it that looked like it came from a bullet or BB gun. It is always something.

So I began calling around to see if I could get it replaced or a new pane installed. Of the eight I called, only two spoke to me. One was no longer in business and many.......couldn't get to me until after labor day. Why......they had seasonal owners to attend to. Excuse me!!!!!

Why anyone would choose to focus on folks only here two months a year made no sense to me, but I must be different. I guess the thinking was these folks would pay more. In any event I finally found someone who will at least come and take a look. I knew the woman was real when she spoke about condensation between the panes being a real possibility. That's when my Realtor head checked in. I had a wonderful guy in NJ who often fixed rather than replaced panes and sealed them really well. He was always busy.

So waiting on this guy later. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Sheila,

Hopefully this will all get worked up and I agree that you may want to report it if it is a hole created by a BB gun or gun.  Good luck.  A

Hello Nina. The shot, shell or rock did not penetrate the inside window pain. Replacing the entire window would be really expensive so I'm hoping a new extetior pane will suffice. TY    Sheila

Not only annoying, but a bit frightening. You certainly don't want to believe that someone did that intentionally. Hope it all gets resolved and you have some answers.

Hope your glazier turns up and can fix your window cheaply. And some sleuthing may be necessary to see who was responsible for the damage.

Thanks Nick. I just filed a police report but I'm hoping it was the landscape guy. Sheila

Hi Sheila- it's always something, right?!  Please take the excellent advice given by Barbara Todaro and the others to report this to your insurance company and the local police.

I reported it to the Police but I don't think I will meet my deductible from insurance. TY    Sheila

I'm going to need a window professional before much longer.  I notice a little condensation going on between panes.  But, tomorrow I'm having carpets and my sofa steam cleaned.  I usually like to have my repairs taken care of in any season other than summer.  That's swim season.

Hi again Myrl. The guys just left. I am having them order the total new insert because it makes sense. Good luck on your home.   Sheila

Very unsettling to think that someone deliberately caused that damage. Fingers crossed that you're able to get it repaired quickly and well.

Sheila glad to hear the problem is on it's way to being solved. And glad you did report it, that's a good thing as if this kind of stuff keeps happening in your neighborhood then they will know it's a growing issue and will pay more attention.
