Worst window installation contest.


I hereby challenge anyone to find a cobbled up mess worse than these windows.
This guy claimed to have 40 yrs. experience doing this. I would have to guess this was the first time he ever saw a window. And he had a contractors license and insurance, unbelievable!!!

just because he has done something for 40 years doesnt mean he's good at it. "This guy claimed to have 40 yrs. experience doing this" so maybe he was telling the truth. he's been cobbling up peoples houses for 40 years and is still doing it.

T/H,
I think you win. Hard to tell from the pics exactly what he did, but it sure looks bizarre.

Bah just put a bunch of caulking and run your finger over it. He must have just forgot to do that part.

You would think that after 40 years you would have window installation down to a science.

I had a wind bag neighbor,once, that was over 120 years old.

He bragged that he had 30 years experience at--carpentry--roofing--painting--drywall work--well,anything you wanted done,actually.

I added it up--he had over 120 years of experience.---Was that installed by a guy named Frank?

He didn't have 40 years of experience. He had 1 year of experience, 40 times.
