Mark Meshulam, Chicago Window Expert Window and Glass Consultant

My name is Mark Meshulam. I am a window and glass consultant with 40 years of experience. I stumbled into the window/glass/facade industry in 1981 and have never looked back. It is an exciting field with ever-evolving technology. I spent the first 30 years as a facade contractor, furnishing and installing window, entrances, curtainwalls, skylights and other engineered facade products in the Chicago market with a company called Builders Architectural Products.

Within that company, I created a window and glass consulting division called Builders Architectural Repair & Testing because sometimes our clients needed help, not products. Here are some of the important matters that came, and continue to come our way:

  • A woman injured when a storm window detached from a building and struck her
  • A new high-rise that suffered an epidemic of spontaneous glass breakage
  • A child who was injured when a shower door shattered on him
  • A condominium that suffered from a severe mold outbreak due to water leakage through exterior walls
  • An apartment building that suffered severe condensation on the windows
  • A brother and sister who fell from an unsecured hotel window (luckily they lived)
  • A boy who fell from the bedroom window of the family’s new home (tragically he did not survive)
  • Three murder cases in which broken glass was part of the evidence
  • A sad case where two women leaned against a hotel window, broke through and fell from heights (one survived, one didn’t)
  • Consulting with an architectural firm about replacing a huge skylight at a university
  • Consulting with an architectural firm about selecting and detailing new windows for 4 new high-rises
  • Consulting with a general contractor about managing quality window installation for three new high rise residences
