The saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words.” And the following twelve photos likely speak volumes. These photos were taken at a recent inspection and they tell their own story without captions. Please review this slideshow and give us your feedback and any of your thoughts regarding:

  1. What do you think caused this degradation?
  2. What are your observations with respect to:
    1. Window installation performance
    2. Flashing performance
    3. WRB performance
    4. OSB sheathing performance 
    5. Foam sheathing performance
    6. Wood structural member performance
  3. What other observations are top of mind?

Our goal is to get your first impressions. We'll digest your feedback and provide additional commentary in the future. Thank you, in advance, for sharing your perspective.
