    Hi all, about 18 months ago I had about 10 windows and a door replaced by a fensa registered installer.
    I had some water ingression on a corner so did some investigation.
    I found that:
    1. NO SILICONE HAD BEEN APPLIED TO THE SILL UPSTAND AND ENDS
    2. NONE OF THE WINDOWS HAVE BEEN FOAMED (there is only a bead of silicone on the outside between render and frame)
    Looking from the inside I can see a gap of about 10mm between frame & block work.

    MY QUESTION IS: Are bulletpoints 1&2 requirements and essential for a Fensa installation?

    The installer is coming to site to "address my perceived problems" and I know they will say foaming is not a requirement.

    Many thanks in advance
