New vinyl replacement windows sticking out

#1 Post by Evans2 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:01 pm

Hi all,
Getting new windows put in as I write this. Noticing that the new windows stick out about 3/4 inch past the trim. Is this normal? I don't see that on any of our neighbors houses that have similar windows. We are replacing our old aluminum windows. They explained to me that it allows for better water drainage.

Looks more like the screen track in this case.

How were the windows set in place? With a nailing flange?
