So, I took my van to a local glass shop (they specialize in vehicle and business glass) to have the RV windows removed and the seals rebuilt, and my windshield replaced as I was experiencing some very minor leaks. I dropped it off at 8am and picked it up at 4pm the same day. My window frames and the exterior around the windows were destroyed, not to mention the interior was trashed. The owner of the company said a new guy, one day on the job, did the work and had to jimmy/pry the windows out because they were "so tight." In the process, he bent every one of the frames, gouged the fk out of the exterior paint while trying to pry the frames out, and he apparently used a high powered drill when replacing them causing deep indentations of the window frames at each screw. Several of the windows no longer open. Icing on the cake was the butyl tracked all over my floor, kitchen counter, couch upholstery, and bunk bed topper. I'll be filing a claim on his business insurance (his suggestion) so if you have any suggestions for navigating THAT mess, I'd be super appreciative.
