Did this video help you?

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: 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. 

Lavive AJ: 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
