How to Measure WindowsIf you’re going to install replacement windows, it pays to measure windows correctly the first time and avoid the headache of placing an incorrect order.

How to Measure Windows 101:

 

  1. Always measure the entire window, not just the glass! This includes the frame and trim as well as the window glass. Record your measurements to the nearest 1/16 inch.
  2. When recording measurements, follow the format “width by length.” For example, a window that is 63 inches wide and 27 inches long is recorded as “63 x 27.” A window that is 37 inches wide and 55 inches long is recorded as “37 x 55.”
  3. Measure windows width from left edge to the right edge.
  4. Measure windows height from top edge to the bottom edge.
