Forum Title: Replacement Window - Brick union
Ripped out one of my lovely 70's vintage alum windows yesterday and purchased a Pella LowE replacement P20 series. All went well inside but I'm a tad confused as to what I should do on the outside. The alum windows were very thin and had fins. I now have a rather large gap between new window and brick where all is exposed - wood/felt/mortar. Do I need to mortar up closer to the new windows then caulk or fill it with something else. What is the standard approach? Thanks See photo on issue

Is the frame painted with primer or is it raw wood? If primer..the stain won't work. If raw wood..did you sand first? The mill finish on frames like that doesn't really have any open pores. The milling process kind of causes them to glaze over and not stain well.
