JJmason... yes they have the flange for nailing into studs... and the headers above the windows were framed... double 2x10's I think.

The windows do bow in slightly. I'll take a pic... not sure if you can see it - it is minimal.

I was using a 2' steel square to determine if sashes are bowed or not.

Isn't this normal though?? I mean, nothing man-made is 'perfect', right?

A bowed sash is not "normal".....possibly the culprit??.... doubt it though, seems minimal...:gee:

I see it. I might have missed it but what does your window company say about the draft? Have they come out to see the problem?
