I am replacing my old aluminum Jalousie windows (I am in FL) with new
single hung aluminum windows. The building is of block construction.
This is a pretty easy DYI project in that the openings are all standard
sizes. My question is what is the best way to trim the 1/2" flange if
needed on the new aluminum window? Thanks.
Can't speak for your windows, but the ones I used to install had a flange
with a groove every 1/4" running down the side, as well as across the top
and bottom. All you did was take metal cutting shears and cut the first
inch or two on the seam. The outer strip would curl up a bit. Then, you
took a hefty pair of pliers, grabbed the strip and pulled it right off.
