New windows/nailing flange


Anyone else finding that the thickness of the nailing flange on new construction windows makes for a lot a lot of shimming to install trim or is it just me?

I'm assuming your talking about the exterior of the window trim. When i install trim around a window with a nailing fin I don't shim. What i do is rip the thickness of the fin out of the back of the trim. On a table saw ( rabbit) This way when installed it will lay flat.

Yeah,that alternative did present itself to me. Maybe for the final two windows I've got to install I'll go that route. I'm using windows with integrated J channel,3/4 trim which will be wrapped and hardiplank siding.Thanks for the response.

Speaking of windows, I can't find the drainage holes on the bottom of my windows. Caulk must have covered them up, and now when it rains, the wells fill up. This is a 10 year old house. Does anyone know if all windows generally had drainage holes?

Ok Stuccoman,thanks for the clarification. I figured that was what you meant. Those instructions do not pertain to windows like mine with an integrated J channel. I did caulk behind nail flange and apply flashing tape to the rough sill and over the outside face of the flange. The trim is then butted into the J channel and I caulk the outer edge before the trim is wrapped in aluminum by the siding guy.After the trim is wrapped I put the hardiplank on,leaving their specified gap (1/8" I believe) between hardi and trim.Then this joint is caulked. The only other thing I'd like to do on these windward side windows is to put some kind of drip cap on the top piece of trim.
