Proper way to measure the window frame for replacement windows.
I'm curious to see what the Proper way to measure the window frame for replacement windows. The only reason i think its tricks is that the sill is slanted, in one place i get 30" and the over i get like 30-3/4. How do i know where the right dimension is? thanks
Standard windows should be framed in 2" increments as in 2'4", 2'6", 2'8" and so on. When ordering always state width first. New windows come 1/2" small in both directions to allow for fitting and leveling.
So I take it I dont measure the front of the window that is 30-3/4 due to the soant. I measure the back of the window that is 30" even. Then take a half on an inch in either direction for install. Thanks guys!
It depends if you are installing as inserts or new full frame... All vinyl windows and most wood windows these days are available in custom sizes down to the quarter or eighth inch.
Harvey is not bad, certainly a fine choice in a garage
