No house wrap .... Window flashing?
I live in an "antique" house, 1790. Wood clapboard siding with board sheathing. There is no house wrap, tar paper, etc. etc. Just siding over boards.
I need to replace a couple of casement windows. What is the right way to flash them? Everything I have read (like this great FH article: http://www.finehomebuilding.com/PDF/Free/021197054.pdf)
assumes the presence of housewrap to flash over. Does typar tape even stick to wood? Or should I just caulk the sides and top? What would the flashing even do on my house?
Also, what is your opinion of premade sill pans like Jamsill? The FH article uses a beveled piece of siding and flashes over that.
