Did this video help you?

Bob Morgan: No Drip Cap required??

Piaras macgiollaiosa: This guy is doing flexwrap wrong,the bottom piece of tyvec should have gone on first,then his flex wrap,then the two side pieces of tyvec

ro ba: thanks

ro ba: i am replacing windows in a house that partially burned down. the windows were not damaged by fire. they were broken with rocks when the house sat before we started work. stucco walls.

ro ba: Is this method correct for today's residential code now in 2018?

Gio 1958: I dont get all thisstuff and at the end the stucco guy come over and put a thousand holes

Windycorner: If moisture gets behind the tyvek, it has a straight shot inside the house. I think it is better to directly use flex wrap on wood sheathing over a apron of tyvek on the bottom, and use caulk directly from nailing flange to sheathing on sides and top, and then flash.

E Caff: Thank you for sharing...

Red Pill: I'm a beginner...this is excellent, thank you! Like the summary at the end.

Jonathan Trivette: You should still put a drip cap on the top of the window and fold your house wrap over top of it.

Romelia Polly: You can use woodprix instructions to build it yourself guys.

Duca Schoenberg: My works too. Used woodprix handbooks and build it with no problems.

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. 

DarkRice: 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.
