DonTx Posted June 4, 2005 Report Share Posted June 4, 2005 I have a townhome that I'm doing the phase inspection on. The windows are aluminum framed windows like you might find on a commercial job. They do not have a traditional nailing fin, they are installed with screws through the bottom frame and the side frame. Here's my problem. I can not find any manufacturers name on the windows. The builder is no help in telling who the manufacturer is. Since these frames set inside the window opening, there is a gap around the frames. The builder has used bitumen type flexible flashing on other windows in this complex. Also Tyvek paper has been used around the rough opening. Is this a typical installation method for these type of windows? I have the AAMA 2400 standards, but they seem to only cover windows with a nailing flange, not the type of windows that set into the opening. My concern is that the gap between the window frame and the framing will only be covered by Window Wrap flexible flashing, which doesn't seem correct.
