Replacement window nailing fin question
The nailing flange is also part of the design that makes a new construction window ... weather and moisture tight.
If it is missing on one side, I would be concerned about using the window...You have no way of making sure that you have a weather tight seal(Compressed onto exterior wall sheathing and attached solidly ..... You would also have nothing to seal with silicone or Water and Ice shield)...on that side of the window, .... unless you do some serious 'retro-fitting', with other materials.
