What should I use to seal around my home's windows?

The vinyl siding on my house was not properly installed (no insulating board, no house wrap, no caulking). I can now see exposed plywood sheathing in a large gap between the edge of the siding panel and the edge of the vinyl window. How can I seal this gap around the windows so that it is water proof, but still allows for the expansion/contraction of the vinyl siding panel?? Thanks in advance.

Why do my windows leak inside around the window trim?

Why do my downstairs windows leak inside, around the window trim at the tops when a driving rain hits? The windows are leaking up top and are wood and vinyl. I have caulked all the way around the window itself where the brick meets the wood. What am I missing?

How can I check to see if windows are insulated?

How can I check to see if when a replacment vinyl windows was installed, the window frame was actually insulated fully? A few years ago, I had vinyl replacement windows installed in an 100 year old house. I still seem to have draft issues around the windows and I'm thinking that the gaps where the old window weights were, weren't insulated or at least not fully insulated. Is there a way to see if there is any insulation in the window frames, or fill any possible gaps in the wood window frames that now have vinyl replacement windows already in them? Thank you.

Thermal Resistance of Vinyl Replacement Windows

We have lots of days over 100 degrees here in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I'm afraid vinyl window replacements would warp or sag from the heat. Would aluminum window replacements be a better choice, or are my fears about vinyl unfounded?

Efficacy of Vinyl Versus Fiberglass Window Replacement

Our Longmont, Colorado, home is 25 years old, and is of well-insulated 2"x6" frame construction. Will the extra cost of fiberglass windows pay for themselves versus a very good vinyl window replacement?

Repaint or Replace Old Windows in Washington?

Our house in Bremerton, Washington, has been in the family for over 50 years. We're all do-it-yourselfers, so the house has been very well maintained. Nevertheless, I'm wondering about scraping, sanding, filling and repainting the twelve window frames one more time versus buying replacement vinyl windows. What are the economics of the situation?
