How to Measure Your Windows for Replacement Posted on August 25, 2020 By:Rob Simpson Installing new energy-efficient windows is an excellent way to both increase your resale value and improve your home’s insulation.

Before you measure for replacement windows, you should verify that the wooden frames surrounding your existing windows are in good condition. If the frames have water damage or rot, they will not be structurally sound enough to support replacement windows, and you’ll need to have windows that include frames installed instead. Measuring Your Windows Measuring Width: Starting at the window jams, measure between the top, middle, and bottom of the window openings. Start on the surface of the jambs, rather than at the trim strips or parting beads in the old window openings. Write down the measurements for reference later. Measuring Height: Begin your measurement at the sill, which is the surface closest to the inside, all the way to the top of the window openings. Measure the left side, the center, and right side of the window. Don’t forget to record your measurements! Measuring Depth: You can ignore any pulleys and parting strips while you measure the depth of your windows, since they’ll be removed during your replacement window installation. Ensure that there is at least 3 1/4 inches of opening depth between the inside window trim and the outside blind stop strip – that’s the minimum amount of space needed to accept a replacement window.
