Can I order/do they sell windows that can accommodate changing the wall thickness at a later date?
I want to replace some windows in my house, but - at some later point - I also want to re-side the exterior. Right now, the house has vinyl over 1" rigid, and I plan to do cedar shakes over 2" rigid. Will I accommodate the windows simply by installing a deeper sill and trim on the exterior? Or do I have to remove the window, install my rigid, install a new nailing flange on the window, and then add a deeper stool and trim on the interior? Is there a particular type of replacement window I need to order? If so, what's the terminology for this type(s) of window?
Yes, I'm quite aware that the easiest thing to do would be to do the siding and the windows at the same time, but that's not an option for my house right now.
