Note, these windows did not have any flashing installed when we got there, we sometimes have to improvise with what we are left to work with.
Remember, we are all only as good as what we have to work with.
Howdy guys and gals, at this home the homeowner had retrofit windows with 2-inch flanges that are supposed to cover any imperfection when installing correctly.
We improvised to stop any water that could seep into the area where the flange meets the framework.
Generally with a typical window installation, with a proper nail on flange, you place your paper or peel and stick membrane crosses the bottom of the window, then place the vertical sides over the bottom flashing with the paper next to the sides, the top of the window is then flashed with a plastic or metal Z flashing.
This same procedure should be done when installing inserts or retrofit windows also.
On this fellas home, this was left out or missed,
We improvised by installing the flashing after the retrofits were installed and used a caulking design to fuse the paper to the flange as we had to improvise and make certain they would not leak.
FYI, most stucco and concrete mixes use Portland cement as a binder, for example.
Concrete mixes rocks with their Portland cement with clean water to make concrete,
Stucco mixes sand with Portland cement with clean water also,
to create stucco.
Just plaster it, whether it ends up good or bad it was an adventure
