Installing Windows Before Housewrap

Post by MindBender » Fri Jul 06, 2018 7:01 am

The plan is to install an apron below window sill rough opening, install flex wrap on top of that and finally windows on top of that.

Should I also install a 1 foot wide bit of housewrap on side of windows?

I was also wondering how I can integrate the above details into 10ft house wrap. All the standard videos only show integration with 3ft wide housewrap rolls and shingling install. I already have 10ft roll on hand and it would help reduce seems.

Just a bit confused on how to integrate window sill apron (and side aprons) - what overlaps what.

Im not sure i'm following you ? You want to cover the apron in wrap? What are you using for the apron? What type of windows?
Is this for a wall that will be later covered in stucco?
