Prior to measuring your window, please look at your window frame to see if there are plastic seam covers around the edge of the window. These are removable and should not be included in your measurement. Many new windows manufactured over the last few years have these covers.
After you inspect the window, measure the full height and width of the glass to the exact inch and fraction of an inch. Do not include the window frame or the plastic seam covers in your measurement.
If you have any questions about measuring your windows, please contact us so we can help you through this process.
