Detailing Flanged Windows With Zip Sheathing
I am building a new home with Zip-R Sheathing. The windows are flanged Andersen 400 series casments and awnings. My question has to do with the bottom flange. I plan to shim the btm flange out with 1/16 shims to allow for water to weep out. The windows will all be trimmed out on the exterior with 1 x 4s all sides and bottom. I plan to also place three small grooves on the back side of the bottom trim again to allow water to weep. Just curious as to how others have detailed this? Also are 1/16 shims deemed adequate to weep. Other opinions are much appreciated.
