I have a contractor that has installed steel siding on my mother's house and he installed new vinal windows with 2x4 window frames that he wrapped with aluminum siding or (the aluminum that comes in a roll and you cut and bend to your own needs.
Well the problem is that the window frames that he has wrapped are really poor workmanship. The cuts and folds that he used to wrap the window frames are not consistant and they leave cuts that will allow water to get inside to the wooden frame.
I was hoping that someone might have a picture or description or how a window frame should be wraped correctly so that the cuts are located (not on top) but the bottom or sides so that they can be less prone to water leakage.
Thanks, very disappointed. He has all kinds of excuses and solutions with caulking that is not what I need. Please Help!
