Q: Whenever I hear some contractor saying residential buildings are built better today than in bygone days, it infuriates me. Take my 10-year-old house (please). I recently found out that all the windows are leaking because the builder did not install whatever is needed to prevent rain from seeping in, and now I can expect dry rot in the framing near the windows. Maybe you could explain how a proper window should be installed so it does not leak?
