Thanx Ron. Does the rest of my outlined plan still hold water or should i go a different route since there is no existing nail flange?

Last minute Tips for Window Replacement?


I got one in. Aside from the trimming and cleanup the window went in in about an hour (one man job). and the reason i only did one window is because i wanted to see exactly how i am going to do the jamb extenision/shadow boxes on the interior.
The window turned out great (in my opinion) I will have progress picture and final pictures posted up tonight!

You don't seem to have the usual window setup. Most situations have the siding on top of the window sides(or at least the nailing flanges). The drip cap is hard to see. Does in go behind the siding?
I don't see how you could apply the flex membrane around the window as it sits on the siding. The material I apply is 6" wide, but it goes under the siding, not on top. With the prevoius window install, you were relying on the caulking on the trim to keep water out. From the looks of the window, it seemed to do the job. Hope you're as lucky with the rest of the windows.
If it were my house, I would remove the siding and do a traditional window install.

Tell me about it! i was anticipating either a nail flange or at least some type of flashing but no! You are correct, much like an exterior brick molded door are how the windows were cunstruction and set on top of the siding.

I did go ahead and cut the siding, flashed properly and installed 4" cedar trim to cover the expose flashing tape. I'm not saying the install is perfect but i think for what i was work with it was good. I'm definately sure that the new windows are more water proof than the old ones and they lasted a good 30 years. Oh and the rest of the windows in the house are exactly the same setup and size (which was nice when ordering them)

I'll have picture of the progress and finished progress up tonight. Feel free to nit pick my work once they are posted!
