My 12 year old house in New England was built with Brosco all-wood
windows. At least a quarter of these windows are failing with rot
starting in the corners where the trim meets the sill. In one place,
the rot got so bad that it leaked into the walls and started rotting
I also just had a dormer put in about 2 years ago and the carpenter
used a Brosco window for that as well. The sill on the 2 year old
window has several cracks in it along the grain of the wood that will
almost inevitably start rotting very soon.
Has anyone else had these kinds of problems with Brosco windows? Are
these windows just plain cheap or were they possibly instaled
incorrectly? Do I have any hope in getting a warranty replacement for
the 2-year old one with a failing sill?
