We have found that the new Energy Efficient Windows can cause magnified reflections that may cause synthetic turf to melt, if it is in the direct path of that reflection. The magnification from some Energy Efficient Windows is so powerful that it can melt sprinkler heads, kiddie pools, and other plastics. If you do have Energy Efficient Windows, call the manufacturer and ask them how to remedy this problem. Tinting the windows is usually sufficient.
