Window installation in a Regency built home

A window of opportunity arrises on Pewaukee Lake.

Windows quite often are equated with opportunity. When building your home, if not properly installed, they can give water an opportunity to leak into your home! Our window installation process includes better water management than any other builder we are aware of. We will give you a step-by-step process of how our partner Zuern creates the perfect seal as well talk about the immaculate window designs from Marvin Windows.

Seal of approval

First, the Tyvek® barrier is wrapped into the sides and sill of the window opening. Next, a tapered, beveled cedar siding is placed in the sill. The tapered sill and 6 inches of the bottom legs are wrapped in flex wrap. The window is then installed utilizing Tyvek® tape on the sides and top of the window, however, the Tyvek® at the top is held over the tape. The bottom flex wrap is open, allowing moisture to escape.

DuPont™ Tyvek® helps make buildings more durable, comfortable, and energy-efficient. Just like the building envelope in regards to roof sheathing, this also applies to windows. It provides a layer of protection against the elements, primarily rain and snow, but also helps conserve energy for both heating and cooling. It is important to keep warm air in during the winter and cool air in during the summer, but just as important, is letting moisture out to prevent mold inside walls and allow insulation to work properly.
