What Are The Five Critical Objectives For Window And Door Installation?

It is important that five specific objectives are achieved for all window and door flashing design and installations to ensure the opening around the fenestration is protected from water and moisture. The flashing assembly should systematically function to drain and dry. They should:

  1. Protect the rough opening so that the materials to be installed are protected.
  2. Divert any kind of water that might enter into the sill area either to a drainage surface behind the cladding or to the exterior clad side of the wall system.
  3. Drain at the head to provide a pathway for any water that is draining between the cladding and the structural wall so that it drains from the head of that opening to the exterior side.
  4. Seal the interior perimeter to control air moisture and water intrusion, while enhancing thermal performance.
  5. Seal the exterior perimeter to prevent the entry of air, water, and moisture into the space between the window and the rough opening.
