A windows expert witness might be needed in a lawsuit or insurance claims for a variety of reasons. The installation, construction, design of windows, and ability to withstand outside elements are very important, as a flaw or defect may be viable cause for litigation. The window contractor must ensure that the window installation process does not disrupt the surrounding walls of the structure, which requires proper planning in terms of how the window fits into the overall structure of the construction project.
Skylight and other types of windows serve the purpose of providing light, air, and other outside elements into a building or home. In any type of construction project, including those involving windows and fenestration, certain building codes of compliance must be followed to regulate the construction process, the violation of which can lead to window failure and other unforeseen problems. The source of these issues may lead back to the window manufacturer, the construction company, window installer, or the owner of the home or building in which the window is installed. Construction testing and evaluation is required of any construction-based project, including windows as they relate to the surrounding walls. Glass defects, installation issues, and aesthetic damages can all be grounds for a potential lawsuit, so the building plans and architecture should incorporate the necessary plan for window installation.
