Drywall in new construction

We have just had our drywall installed and finished. On some of our windows, the drywall comes past the window the entire thickness of the drywall. The windows are plum. Is this a stud problem, window problem or drywall problem? How do you remedy this with trim work, which we will be doing ourselves? Thanks

Andersen Windows, vinyl clad, prefinished white on the interior. I am sure it is not a window problem. Something to do with the studs or something. Most of the windows set in fine. There are 3 or 4 that we are having this problem with. Thanks.

Remodeling is always interesting because you never know what your going to run into. I'd suggest you use wide trim to hide the flaws in your wall.

Good Luck

i would contact your supplier and ask about
extension jams for your windows. trimming
them out will be a lot easier if they are
flush with your wall.
