Face
Refers to the side of a siding or soffit panel that is showing once the panel has been installed.

Face-nailing
The action of fastening directly onto the “face” side of a panel (instead of using the nail hem slot). This practice is generally not used in siding installation.

Fascia Board
A board attached to the ends of the rafters between the roofing material and the soffit overhang. Fascia cap is the covering around that board.

Fenestration
The placement of window openings in a building wall, one of the important elements in controlling the exterior appearance of a building. Also, a window, door or skylight and its associated interior or exterior elements, such as shades or blinds.

Fixed Lite
A pane of glass installed directly into non-operating framing members; also, the opening or space for a pane of glass in a non-operating frame.

Fixed Panel
An inoperable panel of a sliding glass door or slider window.

Fixed Window
A window with no operating sashes.

Flashing
A thin, flat material, usually aluminum, positioned under or behind J-channels, corner posts, windows, etc., to keep draining water from penetrating the home.

French patio doors
A two panel glass door where both panels operate and swing either inward or outward.

Furring/Furring Strip
A wooden or steel framing material, usually 1" x 3", used to provide an even nailing base. To “fur” a surface means to apply these strips.

Fusion-welded
The process of joining materials by melting them together with extreme heat (in most cases over 500ºF), resulting in the materials combining into a one-piece unit.

TESTIMONIALS

Editha S. of Potomac, Montgomery County, MD 20854

(Found on CheckBook.org) Apart from the quality work, Edgar Li puts no pressure on his clients, unlike many other firms who insist you sign on the dotted line immediately in return for some minute discount from a much higher price. Installation of a replacement for the front door went equally flawless, and we saved several thousand dollars. It's a joy to work with Crystal Exteriors.
