TAFCO WINDOWS MHW3155-W, MHW1528-W Installation guide
Mobile Home Window
Installation Instructions
Replacement/New Construction application
with the use of a nailing flange
Note: window openings should always be non load-bearing
If necessary, remove the old window from the opening and clear any
obstructions that would hinder the installation of the new window. The
new window must have clean outside mounting surface in order for the
installation flange to seal properly (See Figure 1).
NOTE: #8 fasteners (aluminum pan head screws) with a minimum
length 1” are recommend. Fasteners MUST be attached to structurally
sound member of the wall (fasteners are not included).

STEP 1. Dry fit the window before installation. From the outside of the home, place the new window in the opening, making
sure that the window is square in the opening and that the installation flange covers the window opening by at least ½” on
all sides. The window rough opening MUST BE 1” smaller than
the installation flange (½” on all sides). The opening must be
large enough so as not to interfere with the back of the window
frame once the window is inserted into the rough opening.

STEP 2. Apply a thick bead of sealant or putty tape to the back
side of the installation flange (See Fig. A). From the outside,
place the window into the rough opening with the sill resting
on the bottom edge. Adjust the window in the opening so that
it is level and plumb.

STEP 3. While holding the window flat in the opening screw the
first fastener through the installation flange (#1 See Fig B). Install
fasteners #2, #3 & #4. Check the window for proper operation before
more fasteners are used. The window should operate smoothly.
Continue installing fastener screws, progressing out towards the
corners, until the window is completely secured. Again, check the
window for proper operation.
STEP 4. Finish the window according to your specifications
making sure NOT to cover the face flange with any finish
material.
