Window j channel


I purchased a window with an integrated j channel for vinyl siding. I was planning on having azec trim around the window with j channel on the outside of that to accept the siding. Is it possible to remove the J channel from the window so I can do this?

Post up a picture.

If it is extruded as part of the frame...its not worth it and you are going to potentially make a mess of it.

If it is a clip in design, I could possibly be removed if it is not part of the nailing flange assembly.

Its part of the frame. So, should I just but the azec up to the channel then?

That will be fine.

I would still put a drip cap over the trim or window (depending on how the reveal is).

what type of siding are you having installed. the other problem with putting azec up to the window if its already j`d out is that you wont have a proper edge to caulk the azec to around the window. because of that water is more likely to get behind the triim
