Patent Number: 6,305,130

Title: Window flashing

Abstract: A flashing assembly includes an inner lip that fits within a rough opening. Bonded to the inner lip is an outer flange that covers a portion of a wall around a rough opening. An outer flap is bonded to the outer flange and has an adhesive on its inner surface that is covered with a backing material. Once a window or other structure is installed into the rough opening, the backing material is removed and the cover flap is secured over a nailing flange. In one embodiment of the invention, the flashings are formed as L-shaped sections that may be fitted in virtually any rough opening by varying the amount of overlap on the L-shaped pieces. In an alternative embodiment of the invention, the flashing assemblies are straight sections that may be used alone or in combination with the L-shaped sections.
