Flash Existing Window
 
Removed old T-111 siding from the house and am getting ready to install new siding. What is the correct way to reflash the existing window without removing it? Have OSB currently installed and getting ready to wrap the house. Can I use flashing tape around the window?

Add this head flashing; http://www.mtcc1170.com/images/BCRainScreen.pdfp.8- http://www.mtcc1170.com/images/BCRainScreen.pdf

after jamb flash but before head flash in Step 8 here; http://www.buildingscience.com/docum...researchreport

Leave 1/4" to the flashing/siding for drip edge, smear caulking on cut exposed edge grain of siding above flashing, be sure to over-bend flash for 110*, hold tight to window. No nails through flashing at head.
