How to measure your windows:

Measure the width of the window from brick to brick (or equivalent). We suggest you take the measurements at 3 different points, somewhere near the top, middle and bottom, as a window opening may not be perfectly parallel and equidistant. If there is any variance you will need to make allowances.

Measure the height of the window from brick to brick (or equivalent). As with the width, we suggest you take more than one measurement, so that you can make allowances if the height space isn’t perfectly parallel and/or equidistant.

Use the smallest of the width and height measurements to order your replacement windows. Its much easier to pack small gaps than knock out brickwork to squeeze the window in.

Measure the height and widths of any openers, sections, transoms, georgian or astragal bars.

Make a note of where you want your handles, hinges, openings, trickle vents etc.

You might like to get a second opinion, or help with your measuring – better to be safe than sorry!
