The Paragon Building

The Paragon Building in Maitland, Florida had experienced water leakage problems for a number of years. The problem was traced to two sources, failed rubber gaskets and vertical mullions that had moved out of place.

Western Specialty Contractors worked with the building owner to alleviate the problem. First, the gaskets were trimmed back and the windows were wet glazed. To solve the moving mullion problem, the excess mullion was cut off at the bottom and installed at the top of the mullion. The mullion to mullion joints were then caulked. The joints along the inside of the parapet were also sealed.

The end result of the project is a dry building, with level mullions.
