esch Posted October 15, 2009 Report Share Posted October 15, 2009 Sorry, but no pictures, I just looked at it for a friend and didn't have my camera with me. The house is 5-6 years old and was built by some yahoo who didn't know what he was doing (Words of my friend, but I do agree.). It has vinyl windows and metal siding (I believe its called type M - it's been a while). _ _ _ _ _ / \_______/ \__________/ \____________/ \_____________/ \_ Do you like the "picture"? =) I believe the windows are new construction type with a nailer flange. It appears the windows were attached to the stud wall before installing the siding. Then the metal siding was installed over the stud walls (hopefully with firring strips/purlins). The metal is fairly clean cut within 1/2" or so from the side of the windows. The windows are not trimmed whatsoever and the joint between the metal and the vinyl is not caulked, There is BOUND to be water running down the metal siding on the inside during even light rains. Would the correct thing be to remove the siding sheets, install J-mold and reattach the siding? It's a pain in the butt, but there is supposed to be a J-Mold around the windows correct? (remember this is NE oklahoma.... heh) Thanks, Matt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
