Boy you guys like to argue a lot, but I have learned much more than I ever wanted to know about impact windows.
My friend is in the process of buying a house, and a lot of fishy stuff is going on.
All the double hung windows were properly permitted 7-8 years ago. Several of the fixed windows and SGDs were NOT.
I know just enough to be dangerous, but I believe the reason they didn’t pull a permit is that the NOA was not finalized at the time of install. It became final several months later, but has been expired for years.
To complicate things, the window company listed on the invoice didn’t have a license at the time, so the permit was pulled by a CBC. Being Florida, I assume the CBC took cash and the window company installed everything.
I found this:
- What happens if the windows were not approved at the time of install? No credit?
- Does the sacrificial glass need to match the NOA exactly? The NOA and manufacturer say it should be 3/16. The etchings say 5/32.
