Window Installation and Replacement
Stucco Siding Inspection Solutions provide services of window replacement and installation.
Window malfunction is the most common reason of elevated moisture findings in stucco systems. Inadequate or missing sealant, rotting window woodframe, or structural malfunction creates multiple potential areas of moisture intrusion, that in effect will cause damages in the home structure.
Window replacement in a stucco system should be performed with extra caution. Removal of the frame pieces may cause stucco damage.
Some companies offer installation of so called replacement windows, however leaving the original frame means keeping the old issues. Even covered with aluminum flashing, the window frame is not always safe, flashing junctions are difficult to seal. Penetrating water may get trapped under the flashing and continue to damage the window frame and house framing.
The possibility of moisture intrusion due to missing sealant, window damage or malfunction increases even more when the window is situated close to ground level. Location of the window may be a factor of its performance and longevity. Lower level windows are exposed to deflecting rain, ground vapor and shade of shrubbery, while the windows under the roof overhang will show less potential for weather damage.
To assure flawless performance of the window or door unit, all our new installations are performed with high quality pvc or aluminum products (unless otherwise requested).
Pan flashing, backer rod are installed if necessary and low modulus sealant is applied around the window perimeter.
In the case of a surrounding window stucco system malfunction (for instance the trim is tilted „in”) we will correct it to make sure that possibility of future moisture penetration is reduced to a minimum.
