Re: Smitty's Bus

Smitty sorry but I have to disagree when you say windows are not flashed. In most of the installs I have seen they were flashed if not all round, atleast at the bottom. Flashing goes on, then siding over it with trim.

Re: Smitty's Bus

I have to admit when I did my windows I didn't use flashing, just the foam spray.

Re: Smitty's Bus

Smitty the only reason I didn't use the flashing on my windows was because I was dealing with stucco and didn't want the fuss. I have seen plenty of windows installed without flashing, but have also seen plenty with. Guess its just a personal prefrence of the installer. I used the outside flanges when I did mine and just attached them to the frame, then used the foam to insulate inside the framed edges.

I have no doubt your windows will be fine. I was not questioning your workmanship Just pointing out that some people do flashing, and not everyone gets arrested for it.

With regard to the shutters all I can say is when I get my bus I will be emailing you and letting you know "Its time to head west young man"

Re: Smitty's Bus

Well you are probably younger than me, at least you look so in your picture

One of the reasons I want to use regular windows is because it will be energy efficient, and reduce outside noise.

Guess I'll worry about getting them installed once I actually get the bus. That would make more sense.

By the way I know nothing about football, but I want the Saints to win because I guess they are the underdogs!

OK you are older than me. I just turned 46. I'm not a football fan, but glad the underdog won.
