and diagnose, and offer effective solutions to difficult technical problems. Gene and his Teams interaction with our Subcontractors was
clear, succinct, and well received, TLS established its credibility here in the valley and is recognized as a significant resource in problem analysis and solutions.

Gene was contacted in September 2003 due to some very serious leak problems we had with windows being improperly installed by another contractor. He came highly recommended to us, and we wanted only the best…. Gene and his team worked quickly and efficiently to remedy all of our challenges…His team was prompt, pleasant, hardworking and left our home as clean as possible at the end of each work day. Gene’s knowledge and experience is reassuring and we would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends.

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 Laboratories recently helped Centex Homes resolve a large scale window flashing issue at one of our communities. His expert knowledge of windows and flashing systems identified the problem and they assisted in designing a repair that could be implemented with minimum impact on our homeowners. They are reliable, professional and service oriented. I am pleased to offer them a recommendation.
Shawn ReedVice PresidentConstruction Operations Centex Homes
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.

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.
Best Wishes Gary Hoffman Milgard Windows
I have worked with Gene and his team at TLS Labs for years now. Recently we had had a large commercial project in Northern California with water intrusion problems. Other experts spent months on the investigations and got us nowhere. In fact their conclusions were incorrect; their incorrect conclusions would have cost my company 100’s of thousands of dollars.
Gene and his team arrived and within 3 days had not only investigated the property, but also developed a solution for repairs. His correct conclusions saved my company 100’s of thousands of dollars because Gene proved that my company was not at fault. The solutions were adopted by the property owners and repairs were successfully performed. Now the property that was a problem for us is leak free. Everyone in the transaction is happy. Gene and his team are a first class outfit and I would work with them anytime.
George Stoutenburg Vice President / Service Edge Development
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. Whenever I want an expert opinion about windows, or if I need to recommend a window expert to someone, Gene is my first choice.

They are reliable in their problem solving abilities and take a proactive approach to preventing issues from arising.

Tom RedwitzPresidentLaing Luxury Homes
My client, a window manufacturer, was alleged to have defectively designed and manufactured windows installed in hotels nationwide. Gene Summy and TLS Labs had the experience and knowledge necessary to help us defend the case. Gene was able to identify defects in the building envelope that allowed for water infiltration. He was critical of the testing methods used by another window testing company that didn’t follow AAMA standards, and ultimately helped us posture the case for settlement.
