Home Improvement Tips For Measuring Porch Windows
Vinyl windows are a top premium choice for home remodeling and home improvement projects. In and of themselves, vinyl windows offer a thermal break, minimizing heat transfer from outside of the home to the inside. Porch Windows Direct’s Vinyl windows look great, are energy efficient, and require very little maintenance. As a result of their aluminum frame and composition, there is also no need to repaint or re-stain vinyl windows since they are the same color throughout.
However, before placing an order for a memory vinyl window, the first critical step is to determine the right measurement for the new window.
How to measure your windows
- The first thing you’ll want to do is to make sure that the window is level. Equally important is checking to make sure that the sides are plum.
- The next thing you’ll want to do is check across the width in three locations and make note of the dimensions.
- Measure across the bottom.
- Then, measure across the middle.
- Also, measure across the top.
- Equally, you’ll also want to check the height of your opening in three locations – Left, middle, and right.
When ordering your window, you’re going to want to use the smallest of the dimensions that we just took to make sure that your window is going to fit properly in the opening. You can downsize the window yourself, tell us what you want it to be, or you can give us a rough opening and we will downsize it a quarter of an inch. This will leave you with a nice eight-inch reveal so you’ll be able to center your window up in the opening. If you have an opening that is out of square, we will have the information you can follow that will guide you on how to properly measure and submit for an out-of-square opening.
