What Are People Saying About Us?
A happy TLS Laboratories customer talks about her experience.
TLS has been a wonderful supplier for Milgard Windows. Whenever we need windows tested, they react quickly to our time lines and work extremely well with
our field personnel.
The test results are based on industry standards and their reports are well documented with photographs and thorough explanations. I would recommend
TLS to anyone that needs fair and comprehensive window testing.

As District Sales Manager for Whitecap Construction Supply in Northern California I have been trying to solve
leaky window problems for customers for years. Gene Summy of TLS Labs has been instrumental in helping me find solutions. His pre-folded
corners are the only good answer I’ve found for recessed window applications. Gene’s expertise is invaluable as a resource for anything
regarding window setting or remediation.
TLS Labs has worked with me as a team member on various projects ranging from custom town homes and apartments to class A office buildings where we felt it necessary to insure ourselves with a water intrusion expert such as Gene. We have always felt a high comfort level knowing that we had such a highly qualified individual and company on our team. TLS has proven thermselves time and time again to insure success with our projects and give our owners piece of mind.

“Gene Summy and his team from TLS Labs recently worked with us at our home in La Jolla to resolve a water intrusion issue. Together with his very capable team, they identified the source of the intrusion and provided a very detailed report that was used by all involved parties to develop a solution for the source of the intrusion. As we were so impressed with Gene’s knowledge and passion displayed during the testing process and analysis, we then hired him to oversee the installation of our new windows and home enveloping. The window company also hired TLS to test the windows once installed. Gene was the respected authority that acted as a liaison between the window company, stucco company and us as homeowners. His knowledge, expertise and therefore, reputation in the industry is outstanding. We would highly recommend Gene and TLS Labs to identify and solve any water leak issues.”
Maureen and Robert Bauchman/ LaJollaCA / October 2011
Every now and then a project presents itself to us as a problem child. Nothing seems to go right. Very few teams in the country are as talented at determining the sources of water intrusion; especially determining the cause as product failure or as installation failure. When we need answers that we can count on to be honest and accurate, we call Gene and his team at TLS Laboratories. We know they will tell us what we need to know to get the project back on the right track.

California’s building business is the largest industry in the state with the least amount of quality control. Leaking windows is one of construction’s
major defects, causing over 2 billion dollars in monetary losses. Your creation of a window installers school and certifying program at your
facility is inspired. Your seminar at the builders conferences educating contractors on the proper window installation methods is enlightened.
Whether you are testing new window installations in La Jolla, San Clemente, Santa Barbara, or teaching others, your passion for quality makes you stand
out in our industry. Your sincerity and integrity are attributes that make customers like me keep coming back. Your experience, skill, and
professionalism are obvious to all of us that work with you in the construction forensics profession.

Gene- many thanks to you and your fabulous team there at TLS Labs. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your assistance and professionalism as well as the professionalism of all the guys at TLS Labs particular Doug, Percy and Epi who kept me informed and walked me though the daunting process of investigating the source of my leak all the way through to completion of the corrective measures necessary to repair and fix my home. The guys were…. aside from being extremely friendly….. always on time, fast, responsive and very efficient. Everything was back in perfect condition and now absolutely no leaks…. which gives me great peace of mind. Thank you again.

I have had the opportunity to work with Gene Summy on many occasions over the last several years. I have found him to be knowledgeable, professional and extremely reliable.
