Installing a window is actually a fairly simple project. Although the fit may vary according to the manufacturer, the installation process is basically the same.
There are basically two types of windows: windows with a nailing fin and windows without a nailing fin.
This project outlines the installation of a nail fin window, which means you’ll need to install flashing to ensure the opening is watertight. Installing a nail fin window is more involved than installing a window without a nailing fin.
Finless windows include exterior decorative moulding, which fills the gap between the window and exterior cladding.
