Simonton windows + tyvek + tape
I lurked/posted a few times last year when I was attempting to work up the nerve to replace some windows + siding. I'm getting myself a little closer everyday.
I'm starting to settle in on Simonton Profinish Contractor series windows and I have a few questions:
1. Any likes/dislikes for these windows? I've noticed that the Simonton name is well regarded on this site.
2. Both Simonton's install instructions and Dupont's Tyvek install instructions specify that either 'order' (putting on tyvek first, then window, then butyl tape OR window, then butyl tape, then tyvek) is acceptable. Is there a preferred approach by the industry veterans? Putting in the windows, placing the butyl tape, then tyvek'ing would allow my job to move at a slower, more 'enjoyable', pace :).
3. Anyone have experience with Tyvek Flexwrap? It seems like the Dupont recommended install is to just place the Flexwrap on the bottom sill pan and a few inches up the window side-walls. This always has stricken me as something that would unalign the extension jambs (no longer flush) on the interior walls.
Thanks in advance for any answers or advice!
