    Mark Meshulam. The Chicago Window Expert

    Mark Meshulam, the Chicago Window Expert has over 33 years experience in construction, consulting, contracting, laboratory and field testing, forensic investigations, insurance claims and expert witness work. He specializes in windows, glass, mirrors, curtainwalls, entrances, skylights, panel systems, louvers, window films, sealants and similar architectural products.

    Mr. Meshulam is often involved with claims, insurance claims and disputes involving leakage in the building envelope, failure of building envelope components (such as glass breakage, leaks and sealant failure), and also personal injury arising out of such products, including injuries from glass breakage and detachment.

    He offers his expertise to property owners who face planning decisions regarding the future of building components, such as whether windows should be repaired or replaced, proper selection of low-e glass, proper detailing for sealant applications, and cost-benefit studies.

    In his capacities at Builders Architectural Products, Inc., one of Chicago’s largest glazing contractors, Meshulam was directly involved with the performance of hundreds of construction projects covering the full range of buildings from single family to 57 story high-rises, totaling millions of square feet of installed products.

    Experience includes commercial buildings, schools, universities, hospitals, power plants, penal institutions, factories, multi-family, and historic renovation, including the renowned Field Museum of Natural History.

    Drawing upon his experience as a contractor, Mr. Meshulam is able not only to ascertain the codes and standards most applicable to a given matter, but also to address with authority industry practices not necessarily published.

Photo of the day

At 200x magnification, more activity can be seen in the glass. The inclusion doesn't look spherical at all, but rather like a bird diving into water. The birdlike shape is a combination of the nickel sulfide inclusion, other impurities around it, and vents (small cracks) emanating from it.
