Measuring to replace wood windows  

 

  1. To measure the width extend a tape inside the window frame from jamb to jamb as shown in "Horizontal Section" and subtract 1/4".
  2. To measure the height, extend a tape from the highest point of the sloped sill to the window head as shown in "VERTICAL" SECTION" and subtract 1/4".  (Care must be taken not to measure to the stool or trim.)
  3. When ordering always indicate the width first, then the height.
  4. In most cases you must use either a Single Hung or a Double Hung window to meet egress for fire codes.
