Octagon windows

Wood fixed octagon windows

1 Prepare the rough opening. It is extremely important that the opening is plumb and level. The window must set square and level into the finished opening. You can make a template by tracing the window on a piece of cardboard and enlarging the tracing by 5/16" all the way around, to make it the size of the rough opening.

2 Pre-drill the exterior casing.

3 Carefully apply interior extension jambs, if needed.

4 Check the fit, than caulk the back of the exterior casing and place it into the opening, be sure it is plumb and level. Nail or screw the window to the building through the pre-drilled exterior casing.

5 Caulk the perimeter of the exterior casing where it contacts the building. install window flashing to the top edges, as needed.

6 Install interior trim.

7 Fill nail holes and stain or paint the unfinished wood surfaces, inside and out, all surfaces must be finished as soon as possible to prevent warping. Apply a bead of caulk where the glass contacts the exterior trim.
