flash a pocket window
Ihad Pella come out and do a quote for my remodel. There are 18 standard size windows. Pella wanted to change the size on most of them which would change the whole look of the house.

I can get the windows from menards or lowes to relace the original ones. The new ones would be pocket windows installed from the outside using the framing and interiot stops and trim of the old windows. Since i have aluminum siding i would like to do an aluminum fladh around the new windows but dont know how. Anyone have recommendations for reading or a tutorial on how to do it?

Decorative aluminum flashing is best left up to the pros with all the right tools. Get a quote or two, I think you'll find that having them do this is fairly inexpensive.

I dont know of any window companies around my area that might do just the flashing. How would I go about finding one?

Check with companies that install aluminum & vinyl siding.
