window installation


Assuming a window with a nailing fin.........caulk under the nailing fin(I like siliconized latex or similar, not silicone). Use flashing tape(adhesive back bitument or similar), tape the bottom, then the sides, install the top metal flashing, then tape over that, housewrap over all of it.

window installation


Make sure the house wrap goes underneath the lower nail flange of the window, not over.

A critical step that gets missed way to often.
