We had 9 windows and 3 doors replaced with new construction windows /doors Milgard (paid $ 7400). We wanted to remodel our house and put stucco on it, so we had the windows replaced first. Now, all the stucco contractors that are coming over are telling us that the windows are not properly installed (are inside not at the wall siding level), and for sure will leak. Also, the windows doesn’t have the proper insulation, flashing paper is only at the bottom and also have the paper cut it at corners. In order to fix this they recommend to take them all off and reinstall it properly and it will cost us aprox $ 3,000. After talking to more than 20 contractors they said that they never saw such a sloppy job.
Photos are attached. Please help me with advice!
