Now....this sounds exactly like what should have been done before and follows every procedure about installing windows that I've read about so far, however, unless they magically fixed it before he came, it is still wrong and you can clearly see that with my photos. :( I'm going inside today to take some photos of what it looks like.
So here is the photo history of the problem:
|See the window missing something on the far right? Not hard to miss.|
|This is that same window after I questioned it. Looks ok....but if you look closely you can see that the bottom tape overlaps the side tapes. Very wrong and defies all physics to shed water out correctly.|
|This is what the inside bottom sill should look like. All my windows except this one in question look like this. Good thing!|
So...Is this all something what would make me stop and not purchase the home? Short answer YES. If I lose my deposit...that's better than being pissed off the rest of my time in this home about a rotting wall because of something they refused to do correctly and paying for it to be done correctly. I'd rather save my money again and hire someone who would be willing to do things right and have a home that I have confidence in. Maybe they will knock off some of the purchase price for me to fix this right after we close. I might consider that...but otherwise.....I'm not gonna take this house like this. No way.
