    Post New Windows

    Hey Everyone,

    Any help I can get would be appreciated. I just had new windows installed and I need to find a way to hang my lights around the outside of my windows for my LOR show. In the past, I have always used a white finishing nail and attach the cords to them. I have tried 3M hooks but they do not seem to hold up in the elements. Any suggestions so that I don't have to void out my warranty with the window company ?

    They are standard vinyl windows with an aluminum wrap around them.

    Are the windows set in at all? Meaning is there a ledge all around that you could build a frame that incorporates a reverse type vice that would press outward against the ledge holding it in place? That's how my dad built his hurricane shutters so he didn't have to make any holes and it held strong.

    I'm sorry, I am not at home right now and I can try and post one tomorrow. They are basically flush with the siding and the gaps that were left are wrapped with aluminum. Let me see if I have one on my phone that has an overall of the house.

    Here is the link to a picture that I have from when the windows were installed. They aren't completely installed in the photos but you can see they are flat mounted on the face of the house. There is a white aluminum flashing that fills in the spaces between the window and the house.

    404. That’s an error.

    The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

    It would not let me upload a picture because it was too large. Do you know anything about how to share a photo from google photos?
