TOPIC: Windows

Windows 12 years 1 month ago #2612

How far do you go on inspecting windows/screens/glass? I try to stick with the standard...."a representative number" and try not to do screens, but clients want you to open/close and check the tilt-out and broken seals on every window. I find it too time consuming, especially when you have a larger house with 20+ windows. Any suggestions?

I will try to do every window, even if it is only to make sure it can be opened.  If it is not easy to access, then I will fall back on the "representative number" plan.

If you're just doing a representative sample, make sure you state that in your intro or contract so it doesn't bite you in the butt later.

I always have the "representative number" in the report, but I will just do them all if I can.

I try to do the windows, unless they are blocked by furniture or are otherwise locked.  I have the "representative sample" on the report.  I also have "Window screens not assessed" on the report, but will say if screens are missing or stored.

I will attempt all windows as well.  I usually can get all windows.  I hope to never skip a window and then have it difficult to open for the little bugger trapped in their room during a fire.  Probably over-kill on my thought process but it's what I do.  I go around the room with my plug tester and test outlets/check windows.  My lifebook computer at the ready.  ;D
