    After replacement, should the window stops be clad in aluminum?
    I just had two large windows replaced due to seal failure. The windows were wood with aluminum cladding. After the new glass was installed the "stops" that hold the glass are exposed on the exterior. I refused to pay the balance because the stops were clad before and now look ridiculous. Am I wrong to expect they would be clad again?

    What did it say in your install contract? If it didn't address it, you may have to pay to have it installed. Is it the same size as the original stop?

    The original contract said reinstall cladding. As far as the stop size I don't have a clue.

    The quote said to reinstall the cladding. The glass replacement was exactly the same size. I don't know about the stop size.(didn't think there would be a difference in dimension.)

    Cladding done but probably new stops if they did it from outside. I'd press the issue since you have the $$$. Good luck.
