How to install flashing on flush windows.


I have a handyman installing my new Reliabilt windows and everything looks good except for the flashing. The windows are set in flush with the side of the house and then he has taken a piece of flash about 4 or 5" and just went around the window and overlaps the side flashing with the bottom flashing. The problem, from what I can see, is that there is no bend to sturdy the piece of flash. The edge of the flash is wavy looking and not flush with the side of the house. Any solutions here?

I think you might be able to tell what I'm talking about here. If not I will send you the picture of the whole window with flashing.

What you’re calling flashing is where your new wood trim should be with the trim caulked to the window and the siding.

These are replacement windows and so I need to add a wood trim all the way around the windows, then flash over that or forget the flash?
Something like 1 x 3s or 1 x 4s?

And thanks to wnabcptrNH as I already knew it looked like crap but appreciate your comment.

That appears to be T1-11 structural siding with 8"o.c. grooves. If so, the window should install with flanges flush with the back of it. Cut the hole bigger, install sill flashing, head flashing, install window, sticky tape, trim. He is taking the easy way but it will leak relying on caulking under the jamb flashing.

Thanks! Missed that or didn't compute.... From the picture it looked like the 1/8" bump just under the bottom of the last sill flash is a window flange. Lotsa caulking there....
I'm old-- and I'm using that (on this one)....
