Did this video help you?

small footprint: Great demo.

Canadian Hegemony: And I neglected to add, very nice video-- thank you for posting!

roaringleo57: on the sill, does the flexwrap go on top of the dam strip or up flush to it? its hard to see and I did not hear any mention of that when laying it down. 2:00

Tony Simmons: Thank you for spending your time creating this instructional and educational video.

Joe Laura: Thanks for the help! Did 11 windows just like you did them. So easy when you see it done first. 

Ally Fisher Plays: I doubt, contractors installed that way in my house. I did not see the bottom adhesive rubber installed

gerardorockerman69: Mylaneb since your house is new it should be on insurance contact them and they will take care of your window, I do siding for living and I know that many siders don't pay attention to seal the windows because they all want is production, bad thing, good luck with your house !

LLuE88: EXCELLANT,  THERE ARE SEVERAL  U-TUBE THAT DO ANYTHING BUT WHAT WAS DONE HERE,    INCLUDING PUTTING CAULKING AGAINST "RAW WOOD 2 X 4s",  IF CAULKING IS NECESSARY THEN IT WILL FIRST SOAK INTO THE WOOD WHICH IS WHAT WAS THE OBJECTIVE TO PREVENT IN THE FIRST PLACE.   YEARS AGO WE USED TO DO WITH 15# FELT PAPER  IN THE SAME MANNER AS HERE THEN CAULK THE pickleENS OUT OF THE CORNER,  WHERE THE "HOLE" WAS,  NEVER HEARD OF ANY KNOWN LEAKS.

Mark -: Who do you work for?  I live in the wettest part of the U.S. and NOBODY up here flashes a window that way.  They wrap the Tyvek into the sill (as seen here), shove the window in, and throw the molding up.  That's it.  I think if I were to ask for FlexWrap, they'd look at me like I was from outer space. ;)

techtalk: if any moisture gets behind the the straighflash on top, it will go into the rough opening

Keith Hampton: All that flashing and then puts a non-casement window in?  Woah... that is one cheap-arse window they used on that house.

Bradyn Austin: That was excellent, thank YOU.

tory mountain: Is that caca smeared on your hat?
The tips are good tho. 

Shannon Shaw: o yeah let me spend 20 minutes tyveking taping tyveking taping with some freaked up ass tape that once it touch anything its done then tyvek tape it on top of it when they pay you 30-35 dollar a square siding install and a dollar or so a foot sofffit and capping lmao  whatever state this is i may have to move cause there must be some good pay involved for all this

TheClarinetplyr: Excellent tutorial! Thank you. Now....off to do some more work on the shed...

TheHenchmen11: will you come to ohio and install new windows in my house please.

tory mountain: Y does his hard hat have crap smeared across the front? And there might be some merde on his face, or is that a beard under construction?

isantimn mn: There are 1000 +. Videos on YouTube for installing windows. This one in the BEST!

Craig Savage: Etoyize You are correct that flashing around the outside flanges or frame of the window is designed to keep water out. BUT windows and siding and even housewraps can sometimes leak...inspite of all the best practices. SO putting in a sill (pan) flashing is prudent and remains the best practice. If you look at this video all the way through you'll see how Carl creates a sill pan flashing. 

etoyize: Window flashing. They have flashing tape to go around the OUTSIDE of the windows to prevent water from getting in. But alot of people say the most important is to flash the sills - inside/under the windows. How/why is that? don't you want to stop the water from getting in?
