A leak through my bathroom window has rotted out my frame. I am going to be replacing the window and reframing. The window has an aluminum cap on the exterior. I plan on having the capping replaced after installation.
As posted on other posts it is a stucco house with no sheathing present. Is there anything I should plan prior to tackling this job? Any thing other than building a frame and inserting the window?
this will be my first window replacement.
Not sure what you are describing. There is flashing over the outside of every window, or should be. The hard part about a complete window replacement is the exterior covering. Stucco is hard to patch properly and should be left to a pro.
