The average life expectancy for an aluminum structure room is approximately 15 years, per our manufacturer’s guidelines. However, recently at M. Daigle and Sons, we have noticed a trend of companies adding windows to structures that are sometimes more than 20 years old. In doing so, they are putting the homeowner and the structural integrity of the room at risk. Building codes, on average, are updated every 5-6 years as advancements in engineering are made. Improving the quality and safety of exterior rooms and structures.
Contractors who choose to add windows into an existing, aging structure are putting their own interests ahead of the homeowner’s. Therefore, any changes or “improvements” to an existing aluminum structure past its life expectancy can negatively impact the structural integrity of the room, leaving the homeowner with the potential for additional future costs.
At M. Daigle and Sons, we remove the existing structure and install a new aluminum structure and roof that meet or exceed current engineering and safety standards. We feel that anything worth doing is worth doing correctly the first time. Just as our motto states, “We put our name on it!” and stand behind our work and the entire line of products.
