How to Install a Flanged Window
Whisking water away from your home's openings is important and basic care. Do just that with a flanged window.
Metal and vinyl windows have an integral flange (also known as a nailing fin) that attaches to the house. It's great for keeping water and moisture outside of your home. Once the flange is firmly fastened, there is no need to anchor the window jamb. It's a great option for your home, especially if you're an avid DIYer. Below, we show how to measure and cut siding, then install and paint the flange. After reading our steps, you'll feel confident to tackle this weekend project yourself.
