The homeowners want to replace the three inefficient picture windows in the living room. Tom and Charlie Silva will put in four new double hung units to match the new windows in the rest of the house. They had to install a new header to support the new framing. After framing out the new rough openings, the exterior wall is properly flashed all around the window to prevent water from running in. They caulk the bottoms of each window as they push it in and center it. The windows are tacked, measured, and nailed in place.
