Re: Review window estimate

Re: Installation

You seem to understand what should be done. Ask the contractor to do it correctly. Sounds like you think they should use pan head SS screws. What is the PGT install spec for your product and region? If you are sure the install is deficient and the contractor will not address the issues: contact the ...
