Home Deciding Where to Install Your Windows

We tend to get caught up in the idea that everything has to be "furntiure quality" but we need to scrutinize other important details like water management which have many more long-term effects. Jake Bruton takes us to a Spring Valley house to show us how to make important decisions like window plaement. Performance criteria will tell us one thing (we don't want windows too far out or in the window well) but from a design perspective it means we an extension jam both on the outside and inside. Think about pitches on top or bottom, mounting, dangers of caulk joints, and efficient barrier systems. 

By paying attention to design and assembly you can place and develop low-maintenance and watertight windows.
