Installing Simonton Brickmould 600 vinyl windows in new construction opening


I am having my sunroom remodeled. They have removed the existing walls and have build new stud walls. The framed opening for the windows is 4" wide. The problem is that the part of the window that sits inside the framing is only 3" wide.

Does anyone know if there is an additional frame piece for the Simonton window that I don't have?

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

There going to add jamb extentions. Yes they could have ordered widows with wider jambs, but it's cheaper in most cases to just make them. Just simple pieces of 1 X pine in most cases.

Thanks so much for your quick reply!

So the jamb extensions will extend from the end of the window frame to beyond the frame opening?

Does that mean that the sheetrock will sit up again the extended piece of the jamb extension?

Will I have to worry about the installation somehow voiding my warranty?

The jambs touch the window frame and sit flush with the sheetrock, then the casing goes on.
Not sure why you would think this would have any effect on the warrenty, nothing gets attached to the window it's self. Almost every new constrution window ever installed is done this way.
Why are you not asking the guys working on this these questions?

Thanks again. I wanted to have some information before I spoke with my contractor (I really am a newbie!)
