Window UNDER siding. How to properly replace?


There is no trim around the windows, the siding butts right up to the frame. What's the best way to replace the windows? Obviously i'll have to cut the siding to get the old one out. Peel and stick flashing, and then cover with trim?

do you have vynle siding? If so, peel off the first row above the window then remove all the ones under all the way to thier seams. Install window properly and re-install the siding. Your'll be surprised how easy it really is unless its on the second floor. Same thing, just harder.

Window UNDER siding. How to properly replace?


Hard way; set all the nails in the sheet or two holding the window in, remove sheets, replace window, cut for and add head flashing, replace sheets. Easy way; measure old window width/height, compare to new window, measure new trim (suggest 2” width, cedar, prime all 6 sides/edges) width for around window, mark new window + trim width/height on T1-11- centering new size off old window, add extra ”room for head flashing at top, cut siding, remove wood, carefully remove window without damage to black paper, install window wrap per links, install window –checking for square and/or closing reveal, install head flashing per links (leave ” space above flashing to T1-11), install trim, caulk, paint. The thin width trim is to leave room for nailing the siding without missing the framing; 3” next to, 1-1/2-3” below, don’t nail through flashing underneath siding at head. Use hot-dipped galvanized nails for siding, glv. roof nails for window, set in caulking as per link.

3” wrap at box stores; http://sunshinesupplycompanyinc.thom...o-wrap-company

My head flashing will have to be slid up into the underneath of the siding, right? How do I secure it there?
