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.
