I want to install a vinyl nail-on flange window WITHOUT removing all the
siding first. I was thinking of sawing thru the both the cedar siding and
the old flange, removing the window then prying the bottom and one side,
remove the other side and top and finally all the old flange behind the
siding. To replace the window, I would cut off the flange on one side, then
angle the bottom flange in.
The reason I cannot easily remove all the siding is because the bottom row
pieces go behind the header for the sundeck not to mention punching thru all
the nails is alot of work. I don't want to go with wide flange 'reno'
Which tool would work best for this job? A skill saw is too big for a neat
cut, maybe a reciprocating saw. I would prefer not to remove for the 1/8"
around the perimeter.
Any other suggestions welcomed
