Millions of windows have been installed and not leaked that did not have nailing flanges.

I still see guys working today with felt and would bet you and arm and a leg their installs won't leak before the new construction crap going up with graco on it.

Nailing flanges are a valuable tool if used right but they are not a 100% requirement.

If the old windows were frame jumped and you are replacing the stucco, you will ideally need bigger windows to install to the RO.

Most newer replacement do have an accessory groove as AG said that can accept a clip in flange.

Do they have a groove on the exterior edge of the window? If so, you can put a flange on them.

Pretty sad.. But I actually sold Anlin windows for several months. They are only a replacement window manufacturer. They either have a block frame. Or they have a rather large fin that covers the old frame and comes tight to the stucco/siding or whatever they have on the exterior of their home.

I had thought about something like this (post #5).

I'm going to re-side with hardiboard. I could still extend some sort of z-bar over the top of the window. It would go under the housewrap and any additional flashing, then over the top of the window. It would be visible and should be white to match the window fin. It would have to be installed after the OSB but before the concrete siding.

Here's an issue. In new construction, I think the window is installed after the OSB and the housewrap, but before the siding.

For retro-fit windows, in order to maximize the overlap of the fin and the siding, the windows could be installed after the siding.

So I guess I have a choice to make . . .

I gather I said something wrong?



I know that the normal way to install a window in new construction is to install it on the OSB and housewrap, and cut a flap of housewrap to go over the nailing flange at the top of the window, etc.

Maybe my comment about installing the window after the siding was out-of-order. (Ideally the wall is water-tight before the siding is installed).
But replacement windows are made for applications where the siding (be it stucco or panel) is not removed, and the window is simply pushed into the hole with sealant all around it. Not the best system, I guess, but it is done.

If I did install the windows after the OSB and housewrap, but before the siding, I'd have to make the opening in the siding as large as the fin on the window, which is larger than the body of the window. An exception would be where the window spans a vertical seam and I can (carefully) slide the panel behind the window fin from each side.

feedback?

Tom. I think Anlin makes a tremendous replacement window. Ideally for your application a new construction window would be best. But as someone already stated you have what you have and you need to work with it. It really seems like you have a clear understanding on what needs to happen to make it work. There's numerous ways it can be done. Right? Wrong? In the end as long as you don't have any water infiltration then all is well. Good luck in which ever way you choose.
