To begin, rip the top and side jambs to the thickness of the wall framing plus the exterior wall sheathing. The cement board will lap over the jambs. The windowsill should also be flush with the interior framing, but hang over the outside sheathing about 1-1/2 in. and have a 5-degree slope toward the outside to help shed water. To keep water from running behind the siding as it drips off the edge, cut a shallow groove (or saw kerf) in the bottom lip (Fig. A). Also, remember to flash behind the trim to keep the window watertight. Trim the window exterior to match the house, using caulk to seal between the trim and siding.
Counters: If you are planning on having new counters installed, have that done AFTER the reface, but BEFORE you put on the doors and drawer fronts. You do not want to be spilling glues, etc all over your new cabinets and faces. Plus, the process of installing heavy granite may lead to dings in your new doors. Leave ’em in the boxes until the counters are on. Counters generally take about a week to complete. Until they set the tops, much of your work will be on hold, so use the time to complete your painting, trim work, etc.
