I recently had a metal building put up, that is going to be my residence. I like everything about it, except how the windows were put in. I'm not very familiar with steel buildings, so I'm not sure what my options are. There are two issues that I'd like to resolve:
- The Trim is further from the house than I was expecting, because of the channels. I know there's not much that can be done here other than painting or filling that in with something, but I figured I'd ask here just in case there's a way to resolve this that I wasn't aware of. Picture of gap between J trim and house.
- This isn't a great picture for it, but the trim is all angled towards the house, so it holds water. There is caulk around the inside of the j trim, but all of the windows really hold a lot of water when it rains. I semi-complained about it to the person who put in the windows and trim, and he recommended that I fill area with caulk, and have the caulk angled. I hate that idea. I can't imagine that being anything other than a mess, and looking terrible. Are there any options to resolve this?
I'm open to any other water proofing or aesthetic suggestions, but these two issues are my primary concern right now. Thanks
