Measuring for new windows or replacement windows is easier than you think. And to make it even easier, we share some industry trade secrets in the video below.


Windows in Brick or Rock

1. From the outside of the home measure the width of the opening at top, middle, and bottom.
2. Take the narrowest measurement and subtract ¼ inch. This will be the width of the window you order.
3. Measure the height of the opening at left side, middle, right side.
4. Take the shortest measurement and subtract ¼ inch. This will be the height of the window you order.
5. Repeat for each opening.

"The high pressure sales tactics of a lot of the local window companies in my area really turned my husband and I off. We almost gave up on new windows until we found Window E-store. We couldn't believe how easy it was to measure and order our new windows! The Window E-store also emailed us a list of AAMA certified installers in our area! We saved a small fortune which enabled us to buy more windows than we had planned on! " - Jodi M.
"My wife and I had several estimates from turnkey window companies and none of them came close to the quality of the Eco line of windows. As per my request, Window E-store even gave me the names of AAMA certified window installers in my area so installation was a breeze too!" - Jordan M.
"My partner and I always thought we could install our own windows but we were worried about ordering the wrong sizes. Window E-store made it so easy with their "How to measure" video and instructions. We followed the easy directions and our windows came out perfectly!
