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

Bryan L. of Kensington, Montgomery County, MD 20895

(Found on CheckBook.org) Like many of you, you employ some contractors that are decent but you have a select few contractors that you would recommend to anyone without hesitation. Crystal Exteriors is one of the latter for me. You get to deal with the owner, Edgar, directly. He communicates very well and is responsive. It was no problem for Edgar to give me an estimate on short notice, and the project was completed exactly as promised without a hitch. If you want a smooth job with personal attention and no drama, go with Crystal Exteriors.
