During Glass flashing replacements, the old openings can be made durable with the use of flashing membrane. Fibreglass or foam insulation can be filled in the exterior voids to insulate the window. The flashing membrane can be used to extend over the head jamb and cover the bottom sill. For flashing glass replacements, an extra patch can help potential weak spots.

Now, you can level the glass replacements and use plastic fork-shaped shims that extends on both sides of the track. In order to ensure that the glass replacements are carried out with perfection, you can check that the window is square by measuring diagonally. A foam backer rod is used for filling the gaps and the backer rod should be covered with another layer of flashing membrane which makes it completely air-tight. You can then caulk the bottom, sides, and top with high-quality polyurethane caulk.
