There’s no such thing as standard window sizes

Feb 09, 2017

When you shop for replacement windows, be advised that there’s no such thing as standard window sizes. There are common dimensions, of course, but the precision that is required to fit your home with airtight windows means that you can’t expect “off the rack” sizing.

You might be surprised to know that the location of your home makes a difference. Design standards in one state may vary from another.

Your home’s architectural style is another factor in the window sizing. A modern home might incorporate different sizes than a classic design.

The construction date matters as well. Trends in design also reflect windows. The styles that were popular in one era may not have endured into the next one.

Your home’s age is very important in determining the correct size of your windows. Over time, your home’s frame and siding weathers and the size can shift a bit.

Your best bet is to have your windows measured before placing an order so you avoid the additional costs, delays, and stress that comes with discovering that your replacement windows don’t fit.

At Johnson County Siding & Window Company, we work with Simonton Windows, which doesn’t charge “custom” prices for a custom fit. Contact us to ensure you get the right windows the first time!

"A portion of our 32+ year old siding was blown off during recent windy days. We really appreciate how friendly and quickly this company came out and replaced the section that was destroyed.”

"32 years ago this company installed siding on my house and it still looks great! Needed a small repair and with a phone call and a quick response repair was done. Thanks again for a job well done!”

- Sandy R.

"The lap siding on the front of our home was failing so we decided to replace it all with James Hardie fiber cement siding. We knew this would be a job that needed to be handled correctly. We were apprehensive about hiring someone to handle what we knew would be a huge undertaking and were very pleased with the way this company performed. We would definitely recommend them.”

- Linda B.
