Did this video help you?

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 !

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.

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?

Bowtie41: Hi,I'm getting ready to replace my old windows with vinyl replacements,then the house will be resided in vinyl.Would this system work in such a situation over the old frames?We live in an industrial area,and always have dirt/soot infiltration.I don't think the window frames are sealed correctlyor any caulk that is there had failed letting dirt/dust in,and I want to stop it and any air leaks before the home is resided.

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

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