Did this video help you?

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.

timofei123: if any moisture gets behind the the straighflash on top, it will go into the rough opening

Mark Griswold: 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. ;)

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

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

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...

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.

kipsupholstry: Way Slick Carl, I had no Idea such products were available will get some as I have 10 or more windows to replace, thank you Kip

hai21century: Great video, thank you.

MyLaneb: Hi Craig, thanks for the video, I lived in my home now for about a year and the wall in my living room underneath the window is water damaged, I can tell where they patched the wall to hide the water damage, then painted over it. who do I need to call to fix this problem? Last year I just got the whole house insulated. so now all that insulation has to be hold moisture as well and the paint is bubbled up chipping, brown, etc. please help me

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

Professorie: very helpful, but I don't understand some terms of some procedures to avoid: (a) X-cut opening (b) level head cut (c) inverted Y cut. So, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to avoid.

MrGraygrizz: 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!".

MrCoolguy6273: i got to replace windows all in my house, do you got to remove the drywall from the inside or not?

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.

Professorie: One more question: what is skip taping? Couldn't tell from the video. Is it simply that you don't tape all the way across? Very good and clear presentation!

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.

MrCandew: Great video was very easy to follow and understand. Thank you csavage1947 for posting this.

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
