Sequence 4//Flanged window installation // water managed // building paper

A water-managed window installation properly weatherlaps and integrates the window unit and the rough opening flashings and weather-resistive barrier (WRB). It is appropriate for moderate to high weather exposure. In this 14-step installation series, the window unit goes in before the WRB (building paper) goes up.

Details that show the complete and final configuration of window installations are fine, but window installation step-by-step series are where the rubber meets the road.
