Shims in Flanged Windows
My simonton casements and fixed windows are going to be installed Friday and I was curious about the need for shims in flanged windows…especially the picture / fixed sash windows.
it seems like putting shims on the sill plate would make sense as it would center the window vertically within the rough opening but beyond that, with a nailing fin fully secured, will shims be needed on the sides?
