Dudley box question
I’m installing Non-flanged vinyl windows in Dudley boxes and have a few questions.
I plan on using DuPont straight flash VF around the window in all four outer surfaces of the windows and then to the face of the box to seal off water .
The windows would be installed flush with the face of the nailing flange of the Dudley box.
Does this sound ok or is there a better way?
Window trim to be installed over the window by a 1/4 inch and then caulked
I also have a question about caulking the Dudley box, the article doesn’t show a good shot of the bottom of the box after caulk when being installing.
I would think the bottom of the box should be left free of caulk to allow for drainage except a little around the corners. I would also not tape of the bottom face of the box as well.
