For my add-a-level, the contractor has put in 8 replacement windows, it was never officially stated, but I thought it was a given that new construction gets new construction windows.........I've heard that this is okay, and somewhat common, as long as nailing fins are attached. I have been asking for the nailing fins repeatedly, but I think I'm getting the brush off....they keep saying "yeah, we will". the siding is to go on tomorow and they tell me the nailing fins will go on first......I don't really trust them, but I cannot be there. I can't replace the windows at this point or kick em off the job, it should be all done this week.
If I find, after the fact, that its all closed up, without nailing fins, what should I do?
What do you think is appropriate recourse? I'm sure they'll probably last, maybe longer than I own the house....but I know its not right......
