How much room do you need to install DIY windows?

#1 Post by blitzpb » Fri Aug 24, 2007 1:00 pm

The area surrounding the aluminum framing of our existing single pane aluminum windows is very small. Maybe 1/4" - 1/2" stuco border. When they designed and built the home they made an exterior frame of sorts and inset the window. Ive seen that the diy windows have some sort of flashing that can be trimmed to fit. Would I just trim it way down?

Thanks
