there are a list of instructions you must follow to install a window securely and properly. It used to be that the windows were secure from water flooding inside the home, now there is a way that they can be installed so that the water leaves the home if it finds itself in there somehow. You will want to measure properly and carefully and make sure none of the seals are ripped or torn, and if they are you need to be sure to seal them back up.
- The familiar set up is not let any water get in, but recently you want it set up so water can get out.
- If any seal is broken you can fasten it together with a specific type of tape.
- Be sure to seal the sides and the top before setting the window in the window frame.
