STEP 1. Check to be sure that the rough wall opening is
square (diagonals measure the same). Cut a piece of flashing
tape 12” longer than the opening width. Apply tape at the
bottom of the opening so that it overhangs 1” to the exterior
and 6” up each side of the opening, as shown.
STEP 2. Place the window into the center of the opening, making
sure that the window is level and centered within the rough
opening. Apply sealant to the exterior of the buck frame then
place the window into the center of the opening. Make sure that
the window remains centered within the rough opening.

STEP 3. Once the unit is square in the opening, secure the
window by using #8 x 2” galvanized or stainless steel pan
head screws placed through the installation flange.
Caution, expanding foam sealants may make the window too
tight in the opening and can negatively impact the operation
of the window.
STEP 4. Apply flashing tape to top first, then along the sides
and lastly to the upper corners. (A) Cut one piece of flashing
tape long enough to go across the top of the window extending at
least 1” past the side flashing tape on both sides. (B) Cut two
pieces of tape 4” longer than the frame height of the window.
(C) Apply tape to the top two corners of the window extending
at least 1” past the corner tape seams.
DO NOT SEAL ACROSS THE BOTTOM INSTALLATION FLANGE.
