The most important part of installing a flanged window is tying in with the existing flashing details.

It is also the most difficult part. Builder and construction trainer Bill Robinson shows how to avoid water infiltration.

Think about the four Ds:

  • Deflection
  • Drainage
  • Drying
  • Durability

In this Project House video series, Robinson demonstrates how to:

  • Carefully remove the old window
  • Flash the rough opening to prevent water from getting inside the building cavity
  • Install the new window
  • Flash the window flange
  • Case the window
  • Caulk the exterior and air-seal the interior

This first episode is available to everyone, the rest of the episodes are available to GBAGreenBuildingAdvisor.com Pro members only.
