This product goes around the window openings. It is a peel-n-stick product. It is cut into strips and goes under the frame of the window.

On the outside of the windows we will use HydroStop. This is a paint-on product that has a mesh fiber layer as one of the components. You paint on a coat of Hydrostop and while it is still wet , you lay down the fibrous material and then another coat of Hydrostop gets applied on top of that.

Both these photos are exterior shots. We ended up with a gap that is going to require some kind of solution. These are two different windows in these photos. The bottom of the window is suppose to fit in such a manner that all that is required is the trim supplied by Weathershield Window Co. It is obvious that after we install the trim there will still be a considerable gap which need attention. The block guys built to the block position plans which were supplied by DAC-ART who made our blocks. We ran into problems on our arched shaped windows as well. In that case, we had to chisel away concrete to get the windows in place.
