Last week we started an exterior home improvement project for a client on Northfield’s east side. The work involves removing the existing siding and windows and installing new house wrap protection membrane, windows, siding, soffits, fasicas and trims. When we are done with out work the owners will have a very low maintenance exterior for their home. When we install the new windows we use current installation methods that include properly flashing the windows and sealing them againt air and water penetrations. For most of the windows we were able to obtain stock window units that fit the existing openings. We are having to deal with a bow window in a bedroom that did not have sashes that meet current egress code requirements. We will be rebuilding that area to accept a proper egress window.
