Despite the various studies that have identified performance problems associated with windows, and the introduction of new standards to improve quality, windows, and window to wall interfaces, continue to be major contributors to moisture problems in buildings. The study represents a comprehensive effort to establish priorities for improving in-service water penetration resistance of windows. It identifies the responsibilities of the various window industry sectors, and makes recommendations for each sector.
