Joinery

 

Joinery is a major issue in the leaky house syndrome. The main areas of failure include:

  1. Inadequate head flashing
  2. Inadequate side flashing
  3. Too much reliance on sealants for weathertightness to the building envelope - these sealants fail within 4-5 years
  4. No recessing of windows - the flush window design in many modern homes offers little, if no protection from driving wind and capillary action
  5. Poor joinery ventilation and water egress - the design of joinery should ensure that any moisture build up or water access is able to escape outside of the building envelope

I am investigating the various anodised and powder coated aluminium joinery products available, and how to tell good quality joinery from cheaper, inferior options without relying on price alone. Check out the new updates in the joinery section of the Remodeling Renovations Website:
