How to Measure your Windows
Measuring your Interior Shutters is easy. Let's start with a few general rules that apply to all of the window treatments we sell. Remember, it's best to measure TWICE and order ONCE.
Rule 1. Always use a steel tape measure. Never try to measure your windows with a cloth tape.
Rule 2. Measure down to the nearest eighth of an inch and do not round your measurements. Meaning don't measure 35 3/8" and call it 36".
Rule 3. When writing down your measurements be sure to indicate which measurement is the width and which is the height and ALWAYS note the width first, then the height. A common mistake customers make is transposing the numbers. Be sure not to get them backwards. Since these are custom made products it's generally very hard to have a size modified and can get costly to have them remade.
Measuring Example: your window is 36 3/8" wide by 60 1/4" high (tall). Your written measurements would look something like this... 36 3/8" x 60 1/4"
Rule 4. Inside Mount Only - Do NOT take any deductions . Our factory takes those allowances. You need to provide us with your EXACT WINDOW SIZE OPENING, do not use the size of an existing window treatment in that window.
Rule 5. Outside Mount Only - Do NOT add any additions. Our factory adds the size of the outside frame which you ordered. You need to provide us with your EXACT WINDOW SIZE OPENING, do not use the size of an existing window treatment in that window.
