To change the old wooden windows has long been a habit. However, before replacing the window, it is necessary to measure the old one.

At first glance, it is not difficult to do this, howeverWhen measuring, you need to take into account the peculiarities of your window opening, the type of the house, as well as the materials of the exterior and interior decoration of the house. The window openings in a typical standard house are divided into two types: a window opening without a quarter (installation seams straight) or a window opening with a quarter, Angular.

Instructions

1

Measurement of a window opening having a quarter:
The width of the opening is measured outside the window. It is calculated as the distance from one vertical slope to the other plus a mounting 2.5? 4 cm to the mounting gap, which comes in a quarter. The size of the mounting gap is multiplied by 2, by the number of sides. The height of the window opening is also measured from the side of the street. The height of the window is measured from the top slope to the outer tide plus the amount of the mounting gap from the top. If there is a cement screed under the ebb, its height must also be added to the already obtained data.

Next, measure the length of the window sill. This can be done either from the old window sill, or to the width of the opening, add 5-10 cm to each side. The width is calculated by measuring the distance from the edge of the frame to the outer edge, while the sill should not overlap the radiator.

3

The length of the low tide? This distance between the outer side slopes plus 6-8 cm. Width? From the outer edge to the frame of the window plus 3? 5 cm, since the ebb should stick out beyond the outer wall.

Measurements of the opening without the outer quarterIs also taking into account the fact that when measuring the width and height of the opening itself, it is necessary to subtract 1.5? 2 cm, depending on the curvature of the walls. When measuring height, it also needs to be remembered that if the window has a sub-profile, its vertical dimension does not enter the height of the window. The length and width of the sill and low tide are measured according to the scheme described earlier.
