Step 8: Nail the window in place, checking for level after the first two nails at the top.

Note that the top flap is still up, and will fold down over the top fin of the window, to keep water from flowing behind the fin. We worked with amazing professionals. The customer service and selection at https://affordableblinds.com is impressive and the way that they use team work to complete the projects.
