Contractor Installs Windows Improperly

Posted by Probe Specialists on January 23, 2016 at 2:25 PM

It was clearly apparent that the contractor definitely did not install 11 out of the 11 windows correctly, and actually removed the old aluminum window frames, altered the window openings, and breaking the water seal. The contractor installed masonry block type windows which are not design for stucco homes. This contractor left exposed wood sheathing and did not rebuild the wall by flashing the window and blending new stucco, paper, and wire with the existing stucco to reinstate the water seal. If planning on updating or remodeling your home, you may want to consult with a home or building inspector to avoid costly mistakes.
