i can agree with all the sticky tape over the side flanges can be a bit over kill,vertical seams are generally not too much of an issue

years ago every Andersen window came with its own flange integrated drip cap,now just the doors do but you can still order one as an option

again both horizontal joints require protection,i prefer to use metal at each one,i really don't see why one does and the other doesn't
i now believe in a layered approach to ''waterproofing'' my walls

over kill?...maybe

sorry if i misinterpreted anyone replies
