Measuring the Window Opening
In order to get a proper picture of the overall shape and size of your Los Angeles windows it is a good idea to measure the following areas.
Be certain to measure the space between the jambs of the window opening at the following three points: top, middle and bottom. It is important not to measure from the trim strips in your old window opening but instead from the surface of the jambs. The smallest of these measurements is the one you will want to use.
Measure from the highest part of your window sill, which is the area closest to the window’s inside to the very top of the window opening. Again you will want three measurements: one on the left, one on the center and one on the window’s right side. Of these you will want to use the smallest height measurement.
Ignoring all parting strips and pulleys, you will then want to measure the dimensions of the window depth. It is good to note that there needs to be at the very least 3 ¼ inches of opening present between the window trim on the inside and the blind stop strip on the outside.
