What Are People Saying About Us?
A happy TLS Laboratories customer talks about her experience.
My experience with TLS was nothing short of remarkable. They are completely professional at all levels, have great ability to recognize
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.

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.

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.

Dear Gene, Wow! Are we glad we met you! Our home leaked for years without anybody able to figure out the reasons until you arrived. Thank you for your hard work.

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.

Quality and long term performance are important. TLS Labs has joined with design professionals and TradePartners to identify products, materials and methods that yield the desired performance important to homebuyers. I recognize Gene Summy’s knowledge and passion, and appreciate the years we’ve worked together. His experience with windows, weatherproofing materials, and installation methods has helped our trades and field personal understand the critical quality requirements for window performance and installation into the exterior weatherproofing system of a home. The TLS Team has worked with our field construction staff in a productive and collaborative way. I compliment Gene Summy and the TLS Team for their contributions to the homebuilding industry.
Sincerely,Robb PiggCorporate Vice President / OperationsShea Homes
For the last five years we at Shea Homes have partnered with TLS Laboratories to improve the quality of the homes we deliver to our customers. One of our goals has been to greatly reduce the amount of window related rain leaks. Having just gone through the winter of 04/05 with minimal leaks reported in the communities where our program with TLS was implemented. I would say the program is working very well.
Dennis Williams, Director, Customer Service Shea Homes Southern California
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.
Dear Gene, Doug and the Gang,
Thank you for helping us and saving our wood floors from further damage!
WE Love You!!
