As a one-time project manager in the industry I would be hard pressed to find a day or at least a job in which I did not use the term dustcap at least a couple of times to communicate needed information for a job. Dustcap is simply too important to not understand what it means.

When designing window treatments and constructing a property a point that often gets overlooked is the ‘space’ needed for the installation of window treatments. We often have conversations with designers & contractors about the amount of ‘room’ that we will need to install our product and ensure that it works correctly.
