Forum Title: Window Nails and Sealant Question.
What are the best nails used on the pre-drilled holes for New window install? I understood almost anything goes Galvanized roof nails were good to go! I also understood that sealant is key! Product should be more in the adhesive family. Choices are: OSI Quad Good to 20* temps This seem Best Choice! Since it specify's about applying pressure. (on the window flange) I was also given these products from local hardware store but seem more for trim caulking.

Welcome to the forums. Your thread was in moderation as the board saw this as spam with a new member and thirteen pictures in their first post. I'm not the pro in this forum.... they'll be by. Quote: Note. I don't believe this is a pre-hung french door cause the day before it got installed a truck came to deliver these big frames & door slab with door hinges already installed on them Pre-hung would come with the hardware attached.

Roofing nails work well due to their big flat heads (hot dipped galvanized are best). Quad would also work very well, I use it all the time. On a new install where siding is not in the way and the WRB is exposed you usually want to use a butyl flashing tape to seal the nail fin once the window is installed.
