casement window in new construction


Hi I will undertake the install of two new casement windows in new 2x6 construction. Size is 42x70.

The exterior will be a wooden or composite siding. I assumed that the Windows are made differently depending on the exterior finish...ie brick or siding...

The window supplier said that all I need to do is buy some j trim from the depot and use on their Windows for siding.

I can't understand how the window,siding and j trim all fit together for a no leak window.....

Any help, diagrams woukd help...
Thanks.

Wood and composite siding are usually caulked to the brickmould, No J trim.
Read this thread - It is on vinyl siding but has good info on properly installing windows.

If it needed j mold to be flashed right or something it should come with it you would think.

The comment above is correct. You won't use j trim with wood or composite siding (at least not most composites).
As it was explained on that other thread, layering correctly is key. I like to make a sill pan with window tape, then install the window. Wrb goes over the top flange (and over the tape). I usually caulk the back side of the flange as well for extra protection. On the bottom, the flange sits on top of the Wrb.

Mae ling is correct.
... In the olden days, felt was used as house wrap.

Went to the depot to see what you guys are talking about. The window guy showed me two types of brick mould. One a straight 1.5" brick mould and the other was called a brick mould with what looked like a built in j trim.....he didn't know much. The first one doesn't look like it had a nailing flange.

Which is correct for wood siding.
Thanks

Are you sure you do not want to hire someone to install these for you?
This is one place you reall do not want to mess up.

Unfortunately....can't.
I've installed many Windows with alum capping...just never with siding.

Why wood or composite siding and not vinyl?
Lots harder to install and maintain both wood and composite.

its low. Do not like the "softness" of vinyl where it can be touched at ground level...
