Richard and Scott, those are the two things I described to the person that could result.

They were told by somebody that the structural wood frame work around the window would rot as a result. I told them that was BS.

Do you concur?

John, did a client tell you this? If so they are most likely refering to the sash. After more than a decade in the fenestration biz I've heard more bizzare descriptions of a sash than you can imagine. Don't even get me started on the difference between mullions and muntins[;)]

Scott, the next time you run into a seal failure in what you suspect to be a high performance glass check it out with your IR thermometer, the difference in performance is probably greater than you think.

I will do that. Now don't you eat mint jelly with Muntins? [;)]
