Nailing flange between two windows?


if you have studs between the current windows it could a stud pocket and could be holding weight(roof). especially if you pull the trim and see that the wall sill plate is cut between full length studs that go floor to ceiling. usually though they will be double studs between the windows if the studs are holding up the roof. if you open the trim up and see hollow pockets between the windows then it is one window unit that was installed at one time. if you install a triple unit then it would be the same way, install all three at one time. if you have to install each window separately and overlap the fins then plan to make the top horizontal window trim thicker then the vertical mullion trim and have a small reveal at the face of where the trim meets along the top of the window. probably use brick mold at the top and 1x ripped to fit between(mullion). the inner edge of brickmold is 1" and 1x is 3/4" so that is 1/4" of variance allowed behind the mull... so basically brick mold will go around all three window edges- top, and two sides and 1x mull to fill in between the windows after the brickmold goes up.

if you get a triple unit then all exterior trim should be installed to it from factory unless you state otherwise when ordering...

Well, you guys were right. The current windows I have are mulled together with one big rough opening. I'm planning on having my new windows mulled at the factory. Thanks for all you help and input!

Can't overlap the, there is a mull bar you use between the two in order to do that you have to snap them off put mull bar between with self- tappers and install with galv. Screws.. No nails
