Replacement Window Sizes

Replacement window sizes vary by the type and style of window being installed. There are numerous standard sizes for all types of windows. Any other size has to be custom made. The difference between the two is huge as far as price is concerned. Even a small custom unit might actually cost more money to buy than a much larger one that fits the standard scale. The reason for this is that these standards are set in place to provide manufacturers with templates for their higher production materials. They mass produce windows of the standardized variety, making them much cheaper per unit to fabricate. Customized materials, on the other hand, are made from high labor short run processes that cost much more to produce.

The relation between size and cost is something to keep in mind for all homeowners. If you can get some good measurements and determine where your materials fall, it will help you determine how replacement window sizes will impact the cost of the job. Find out how to get good measurements without having to tear everything completely apart and it can make things much easier. There are methods for getting this done and if we know them, it helps speed the process along. Find out all you can on replacement window sizes and save money on the cost of replacing your old windows.

Size and Replacement Windows Cost

Installing replacement window sizes and their replacement cost are extremely closely related in general terms. Because of the cost of materials and fabrication expenses, replacement window sizes are very important to their monetary cost. Smaller windows are less expensive to buy while larger ones usually cost more. This all works within the confines of the standard sizing system whereby window sizes are identified and labeled. As long as a unit fits into one of these standard measurements, it works along these guidelines for price.

Of course, non standard or custom size window replacement units also exist. In areas of the home where none of these normal sizes will work, it is up to the homeowner to go to the step of ordering them in custom made lengths and widths. This step obviously ensures that the job can be done even when the replacement window sizes are not in a normal range, but it also drives cost up tremendously. Average prices for these oddball sized units are extremely high, making them harder to afford for most people. This is a common problem in older homes, where homeowners sometimes choose to have the replacements sized down and the rough openings partially filled in to save some money off of the cost of the job.

Measurements for Replacing Windows

Getting measurements for a replacement job like this is not always easy, but there are definitely some ways that we as homeowners can make it much simpler on ourselves and get it done faster and more accurately. Getting replacement window sizes for an entire house can be time consuming, but many times we find that the entire home only requires two or three different dimensions at most. To double check this, we can check by just measuring quickly across the frame from side to side and from top to bottom. The different replacement measurements should all match roughly if they are the same window.

If we find that they all match, it is only necessary to get one detailed measurement to find which size to order them all at. Remove the inside window trim and get the numbers that way. Use manufacturer specifications on whether to go with the rough opening or the existing frame and find out how much tolerance to subtract from the figures to allow for enough spacing for shims and irregularity in the different openings.
