Around doors and windows, you will want to use minimally expanding foam meant for that purpose. The regular great stuff will expand too much and will bow the framing of doors and windows.
Thanks for the advice. What I ended up doing was almost exactly like you recommended. Since my windows were a little undersized relative to the rough opening. I added some framing to make the rough opening smaller. The siding was a good 3 inches or more from the rough opening, and I filled that 3 inches with 3/4 thick wood sheathing. Once that was done, my 3 wide wood sheathing butted up smoothly to the 3/4 siding. I then concealed the transition between siding and my sheathing strips with window trim. Of course, I also added all the necessary layers of thin window membrane layers in between all that. Thanks for your great suggestions.
Quote: I don't want to nail the flanges to the 2x4 stud framework. I've been told that would be inappropriate because the flanges are supposed to be nailed to the wood sheathing which my house does not have. Whoever told you that was wrong. Glad it turned out to your liking, and sorry I didn't see this post until now.
