Measuring

First of all, it's all but impossible to find stock windows at your local home improvement center that fit the openings from your old windows. Since all of our replacement windows are made-to-order, the size you get will be a perfect fit.

You'll need to take an exact measurement, height and width of each window frame to be replaced. Make a diagram of your home.  Note each window and give it a number. Make a list of the numbers along the left side of the page.  Next to each number, note the width and height measurements for each window. Tell your window supplier to tag each window ordered with your corresponding number. This will be a great time saver later on when the windows arrive. You'll know exactly where each window goes.

   When measuring, take a lot of measurements. 

Measure your windows 3 times on the width (top, middle, bottom) and 3 times on the height (left, middle, right). You'll need to deduct 1/4th inch from the smallest measurement on your width and height for each window. Usually, window manufacturers can give you a printed sheet with their measuring and ordering guidelines. Don't worry; most windows are built with sliding top or side moldings to make up for out of square openings.

 

Note: Tempered glass is a required by most Building Departments and should be added as an option on windows that are within 18 inches from the floor, at a stairway landing, in a bathroom tub/shower stall, or entry door side lites.
