Plumbers putty is great for plumbing...but I say one summer of heat and it will be more like dried out clay and start leaking again.

I'll try and get a picture of the Work seal tomorrow. The plan is install the J-trim, and use small strips foil tape at the top and bottom corners, then to fill in the gap between the trim and R panel all the way around. I'll work (push) it in and smooth out so I'll have a good 1/2 to 3/4 bead all the way around. The one at work seems to have held up well, and can still be pushed in some with a finger.  

 

This stuff shouldn't run / stain as bad as the four or so tubes of calking I have tried.

 

Thanks for the pictures, That shows me how I need to cut the bottom.

At that point I should be able to calk over it. I need something to fill the 3/4 void cheaply and I think this will fit the bill.

 

Great comments all, and I haven't forgot that top seam, That can be addressed after I get the trim back in.

 

PS 30% chance of T-Storms Saturday, so I will be working on this Tomorrow and Friday. Wish me luck.

Don't forget the little over hang. It funnels the water away from the siding/J seam. The less water on the seam, the less that has a chance to get in the building.

I think I like this better that all the ones I have seen where the overhang tab is folded down over the side panel. I'll keep this in mind for the problem window, but I'm not planning on removing the trim again on the other window.

 

After closer inspection I see they left a slight lip on the back of the trim, I'll try and duplicate this.

Plumbers putty might be a quick fix but when that stuff hardens, cracks, turns yellow, & the residue runs down your walls your going to have a big mess. Like I mentioned earlier in your project your windows are too recessed. Your catching water instead of draining it. Your windows should protrude past your trim. If you look at the video notice how the windows are outside of the trim. Sorry :(

Larry , I wonder if a drip cap would be better for you instead of J chanel on the top of your window ? The water above the window would be alowed to go over the window instead of be chaneled to the sides and down .

Larry, I wasn't thinking early on about this. I'll get out to Aarons' building this morning and see what they did for his windows as it is built just like yours. Maybe I can see something that will help!

Larry this is bugging the heck out of me trying to figure this out. I have went back, copied your pics, blew them up trying to see what is causing these leaks. I noticed maybe, its hard to tell but do you enough framing around your Windows so when you fasten your trim & siding it is staying tight against the walls. You shouldn't have a need for a lot of caulk, plumbers putty & spray foam to stop your leak. You can't stop water you just have to keep it flowing in the right direction. Assuming your windows are vinyl have you checked for hair line cracks. Sometimes nailing the flange too tight will cause it to crack near the window & you can't see it. Have you seen the first point of a leak from the inside to determine at what area your leaking.

If you caulked over it then it would probably stay in place.  Good idea!

 

Good LUCK!

Well as stated above.

This is bugging me too.

The windows are installed wrong, the r-panel ridges are not where they should be, this affects how the J-trim is installed. I had to put folds in it anyhow.

All I can hope is the putty works. It looks like it will. This is almost 5 lbs worth, top J trim is filled to where the water has to run off.

 

T-Storms predicted for Saturday, I hope I get a good one!

I finally got pics of Aarons window trim. Sorry I'm late. Those ridges are probably the issue, though.

I have solved the window leaks with plumbers putty. and have moved on to insulation and inside walls. Iam going with a theme of peg board and sanded pine plywood. And R-Matte Plus-3 for the celling insulation.
