Within this 35’ tall opening, the original builder installed a storefront system. The windows were inserted into the storefront aluminum tubing, none of which was rated to handle air and water. The presence of heavy and sloppy caulking around the system and glass evidenced a previous attempt at stopping the water.
This was a classic case of the wrong system used in the wrong application. We worked with Old Castle Building Products to engineer and completely replace the existing with a high performance stick curtain wall system, which simultaneously provided waterproofing for all new connections.
