Window Update

17 Jul

We finished the window installation this morning, and let me tell you, it was nerve wracking!

The first step is to get the opening all caulked up…

After that you put the window in position and begin to square it up, and that’s where it gets scary. The caulking is starting to dry, and you have to scramble to get the window casing square, plumb, level and evenly spread, and as you change one thing you change another. It gets very frustrating, especially when you think you’ve got it and you nail it in and then realize one of the other measurements is off.
After all was said and done, we got it in there pretty good, completed all the flashing on the outside, and then filled the gaps with low expanding spray foam to insulate.
The finished product…
