    Default not another weephole thread!

    I remember a thread about this type of window, and whether it might be exempt from weepholes at the top, but I couldn't find it, so ...have at it!

    I heard from a very knowledgeable and reliable source, that weep holes are not needed, and actually cause damage.

    It must be true, because he has been framing houses for 30 years now, so he must know what he is talking about.

    Of course I suppose they could just drill some holes in the brick where they want the water to come out, that might work.

    Who are you to question a framer with 30 years of experience?

    You mean the framer who admitted he missed the damage he was not looking for, and missed that damage for 30 years?
