siding air gap
 
When you have siding that requires an air space/drainage plane you do that by using furring strips, correct? When you do that your obviously increasing the wall depth so does a piece of flashing need to be installed against the wall first so that any water that might get behind can drain and also it would cover up the underside of the sheathing and furring strips?

fur out the window also then install new trim on top of that so your trim will protrude far enough out from the wall in order to have a proper edge to caulk to

regarding the window flashing.. install your furring strips at the bottom and sides of the window but before you install more vertical furring the window needs to be flashed now so its lapped under the house wrap,

ive seen siders install the flashing directly on top of the furring which does absolutley nothing to water proof the top of the window.. water will run down behind it

Also what about flashing under the furring and sheathing? Otherwise it would be exposed at the very bottom.

install furring strips around the window so you can install trim on top of hte furring.. flashing the window first so the cap flashing is tucked under the house wrap.. then for overkil flash the trim as well..


depending on if your installing new windows or simply installing new siding around exisitn windows changes the prep

do you put the furring strips over or near the nailing flange so you can put the trim over it?
