How to Measure for Replacement Windows

When the time comes to replace windows in your Maryland home, it is very important to know the size of the windows you intend to replace. Knowing the size will not only help you communicate with your contractor but also understand the pricing during your bid, as size is one of the biggest factors in pricing in a new window.

Before we dive into the basics, let's first mention that there will be a bit of jargon for windows here.

When taking measurements for windows, be aware that there are three people who do everything. You measure the height, width, and depth of the window and do this three times in different places on the window for an accurate measurement.

• For the window height you want to measure from the sill to the head pillar (the window pillar refers to the trim around the window – you can call it a "frame". Measure from the far left first, then from the center, then from the far right.


When choosing a replacement window, everything is important. This is because if the measurement is turned off by even an eighth of an inch, the new window you buy will be very unprofitable.

If you don't have the time or if you can't rely on your results, hire a specialist! Experts are very focused on getting the job done right. As players, we feel like ourselves (and in most cases, we need to make sure everything goes smoothly).
