Poor Window Installation Equals major Headaches

Have you ever heard the saying, “If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” The answer to this debated question is yes.

The same holds true for water damage. Unfortunately, water damage to a home often goes unseen by the homeowner. The sign of any destruction is usually hidden by siding or exterior cladding, but underneath there can be serious damage occurring.

The picture above shows water damage caused by years of leakage from the original builder’s wall of windows. When this home was built, the construction workers implemented improper flashing and caulking around the home windows. This created problem areas that cycled the draining water from the above area to the structure below, causing mold to grow.
In this example, Florida Engineered Glass discovered this problem while they were working on another project at the home. Once the mold and structural issues were revealed, cleaning the mold and completely rebuilding the affected area became a top priority. Fixing this error was an expensive undertaking for the homeowners and it could have been avoided if proper installation techniques were followed from the start.

When working with Florida Engineered Glass, you won’t have to worry about your replacement windows being installed incorrectly.

The job materials used for our window installations, (i.e. caulk, coil, lumber, etc.), are constantly being monitored for quality control, and installation techniques are strictly enforced by FEG, assuring peace of mind for the homeowner. In fact, our installation is warranted as well as our replacement windows and doors.
