sealin windows without nail fin
 
Hi all-

I have an older home (2x4" exterior walls). I recently framed in some new windows. They are new construction- unfortunately I had to remove the nail fins to get the windows to ride flush with the siding like the rest of the house. I am now faced with the issue of properly sealing them (exterior). There is a small brick molding type trim that comes into contact with the exterior of the house (siding removed around perimeter).

Please help.

Thanks- John

You will likely need a combination of custom bent flashing/caulk, but as stated, pics would definitely help.

As you can see Ive cut back the aluminum siding and the molding now rests on the underlying ship lap. I've attached a drawing to further explain (excuse my paint skills hahaha)

I would go with caulking, but I do not think that would be enough.

Thanks for the response. I'd have to agree I don't believe caulk alone will be enough. Any other ideas?

as HomeSealed said, alum. flash and caulk... are you replacing the siding too?
