Windows shall be installed so that the glass does not crack due to unusual stress caused by movement or settlement of the building frame.
One-Year - Work and Materials. · Damage resulting from normal wear and tear is not covered by the statutory warranty.
Windows with glass showing stress cracks shall be repaired.
Stress cracks occur across corners of glass as a result of pressure being applied to the edge of the glass. If there is evidence of an impact, and the condition was not recorded on the PDI Form, it will be difficult to establish that the damage was caused by the builder.
