In this edition of Shop Class, Builder Jake Bruton demonstrates how to get the flashing details right when installing a flanged window in a wall with a fluid-applied WRB.
Use a piece of bevel siding and some carefully fitted pieces of Zip System tape to flash the sheathing to the framing.
Run a bead of sealant around the sides and top of the rough opening before setting, squaring up, and fastening the window to the framing.
Wrap the sides and head of the installed window with Zip System tape, but leave the bottom flange of the window untaped for drainage.
Spray foam and high-quality sealant bridge all of the gaps between the framing, shims, and window for a durable and energy-efficient installation.
