Hello Rixbak,

 

Welcome to the community.

 

You will need to measure the width and height in 3 locations.

 

Width: top, middle, bottom

 

Height: left, middle, right

 

Aluminum window need to be measured at the inside edge of the frame. (Smallest opening)

 

Wood windows are measured directly behind the sill stop. (See picture below)

 

Here is a diagram and worksheet that might help.

I also wanted to give you a link to our window buying guild. It will help you understand windows better so when you go in to purchase your windows it will be easier.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. I would love to help.
