“Innie” Window Detail for Metal Siding
How would you finish off the windows on a 2×6 wall with zip. (Zone 6, so at least R12.5 or 2.5″ of xps on the exterior) Ideally a minimal window detail without a frame using galvanized metal bent and likely easily obtained components like J channels. The windows are flanged.
I have seen many details for innie’s with stucco, vertical and horizontal wood, but nothing for 7/8 (wavy) corrugated attached vertically over a horizontal furring strip.
Unfortunately, something like thermal buck isn’t an option because the components are at the site and the home is framed. I am open to any other suggestions, favoring the least conductive methods. Thanks-J
