Did this video help you?

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

David Hedrick: Very good video, nice to see someone doing a good job at this, I've seen so many leaking windows! I've used the blueskin and it is very good, actually does go around the corners, just not as neatly and easily as the flexwrap. I think I'll continue to use the blueskin on my house since it is easier to find and cheaper for similar value though.

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.

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 !

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.

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

Bradyn Austin: That was excellent, thank YOU.

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

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

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.

pipingdogtooth: You must learn how to remove your siding. Unfortunately the sill flashing can not be installed in an old window, but you can still flash all around the bottom against the house wrap. I also suggest installing a layer of metal or vinyl flashing (at least 10") on top of the flashing tape.

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?

Takihashi16: Wow, you know what you are talking about and you do it well. Thanks for the video.

Craig Savage: Start by knowing that all siding, doors and windows will leak, the challenge is to create a secondary water barrier, the Water Resistive Barrier, that will drain water away from the sheathing underneath to the outside. The video shows how to apply the WRB -- shingling each layer from bottom to top, so that no matter where bulk water enters, it always is shunted back out. You can learn more at the Building America website., Hope this helps

Timmy Gee: Now that's what my builders carpenters should have done! Time for me to re-do it correctly. I guess the old saying holds true, "If you want something done right, your going to have to do it yourself!".

SEO.com: I needed this thx

sidehop: Thank you, very informative.

Craig Savage: Hello Laneb I'm afraid you'll probably need to find a contractor with siding experience who can remove the Vinyl or Wood trim around the window and maybe some of the siding so you can inspect the water resistive barrier and flashing details underneath. Odds are it's not a terribly difficult fix.....warning, don't be fooled into thinking someone can "seal" it with secrete sauce, caulk or anything from the outside.... Hope this helps. Craig

s37d: he rubs it in hard

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?

Nutt Buster: Very thorough. Thanks Carl.

John Dole: @Professorie - yes

SesomYort: I live in Florida and have been struggling for 6 years with builders both put a sill pan in with a turned up inside edge, and to have them not seal the bottom window fin. This is an excellent tutorial that reinforces that the water will indeed permeate - the key is to give it a way to get out.

unknownunknownknow: Check out the price for Flex wrap .. It ain't cheap ! .. I have to agree with this fella .. I thought In was one of the few that knew how to properly flash a window .. Most clowns tape the whole window even if specs diagram it different .. I always tilt the sills and do not tape or silicon it .. Water got to go somewhere is case

MItch W: This is great Craig. I have a window opening in concrete basement wall. What is your recommendation for installing a window in concrete? Thanks.

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

Craig Savage: Does the window have a flange or is it caulk in place?

bob smith: This guy is great, finally a video done properly, answered all my questions I have 17 windows to do on my barn!!

archdynamics: Carl is indeed the man - even though we show these details on our Architectural plans, it's amazing how often the guys in the field still do it the 'old' way.

captaincvfd: where does the water go that gets to the sill wrap?? Down the building paper until it finds a hole in the paper then its in the house This was a good flashing compared to most but the bottom flashing needs to bring the water out to the top of siding not let it run down the side of the building

Abay Singh: Thank you. Just found solution to my leacky windows

pipingdogtooth: Just fantastic!! Thanks for the information and for your attention to detail. Termites and ants don't just wander into structures. They follow the moisture trail that inept contractors usually provide.

Wesley Willard: That mustache is badass.

Matt Risinger: Excellent video Carl! This is a perfect install and I'm guessing that a lot of people have used this to train their guys in the field. I'm a big believer in the Tyvek Weatherization system and I'm annoyed by how many windows I see getting installed improperly & without sill pan flashing. Nice work buddy. Matt Risinger

coldkidc: Why didn't he caulk the windows? He talks about it but didn't do it...

Nan Null: @Professorie I don't know why he didn't explain, but I guess, he said don't x-cut, meaning cutting two straight lines crossing each other to start out the cur for the rectangle window. Cut the top, make sure it's level. Then cut a path that resembles an inverted Y. Why? I am not quite sure.

bogiewheelman71: this is good for a new built home but how about on a older home with siding on

mrsleep0000: @378904 Yes, if flashing is not installed it will leak. I am replacing almost an entire wall right now because my wife's ex installed a replacement window and did not flash it properly. It leaked like crazy and rotted a large section of the frame.

senorpadre: This was very helpful. I viewed it multiple times to install my new windows. I wish you had one for doors. Thank you.

popcorn4two: Another excellent video. Was hoping you'd include how to cut TyVek the correct way. What's informative about this video was the "skip taping" on top of the window. Thanks for posting.

dynomax666: Nice to see people doing this properly. This is code since 2008, but only about 25% of contractors are doing this.

MItch W: The windows do not have a flange. They do have the brick moulding around the windows. This is in a snow region. Also, would it be best to use vinyl moulding? Thanks Craig!

Dmitry Chouliak: Caulking requires on the flanges to the paper prior membrane application!!!

mexihoosier: Thank you Carl.

s37d: having to cut the corners of house paper annoys me, so i like this here flex wrap

jmr4940: what size flashing is this, 6" or 9"?

TheLkvoice: while watching this vid open a new tab and also play this one /watch?v=CS9OO0S5w2k and try not to smile

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.
