NON-Flanged (Insert) Window Replacement + Flashing
I changed out my rotten wood framed windows for all vinyl ones. The original wall was aluminum siding. I fixed the rotten sheathing, applied house wrap. Then strapped (furred) the wall with plywood. The pictures show how I flashed the rough window openings. I did NOT want flanged windows because I did not want to have to disturb the siding when the window needs to be replaced in the future (far into the futuer I hope). I see a lot of articles on how to flash flanged windows, but I never see methods for Insert (non-flanged) ones. Even though I had scaffolding in place, I still prefer to install the windows from the inside. I was working alone so for me it was safer. All the sealant used was Quad Advanced low VOC. Please comment below.
Thanks again for your time and patience.
