Window Flashing

Window flashing is waterproof, metalized plastic trim installed around windows and skylights to prevent water and moisture from entering your home. Since flashing is installed underneath the trim and/or siding, it's not visible in a finished window installation.

Window Flashing

Adding window flashing is an essential step in installing new windows. Windows installed without window flashing are open to a host of problems, the most common of which is moisture finding its way into the wall cavity. Moisture that settles around the window frame can also cause wooden frames to rot or warp over time. Windows without proper flashing can lose heat from inside the home, negating much of the energy-saving properties of new windows.

Window flashing is also important when installing skylights since these windows are located on the roof, where rain water and snow accumulate.
