How To Measure For Double Glazed Windows

In order to be able to correctly price your double glazed windows you will need to take accurate measurements of where you are planning for them to be installed. Now this may sound like quite the daunting task but in reality, it’s really quite simple. All you need to do is grab a tape measure and follow this step-by-step guide.

Step 1: Measure the width from plaster to plaster and the height from the windowsill to the plaster.
Step 2: When building your online quote, it will allow you to take measurements in either inches, centimetres or millimetres. It is highly recommended that you take an average of 3 measurements across the width and height.
Step 3: The final step is easy, all you need to do is take a measurement from the bottom of the windowsill down to the floor. If this is below 80cm then you will need to have toughened glass as an addition in your online quote to meet building regulations.

Once you’ve got your measurements at hand, you can then enjoy browsing through different window styles. Below we have listed our exceptional range of uPVC window designs.

In order to have a better idea on which windows would be better suited for your property, have a read of our guide below.
