How to measure windows and doors for remote pricing

Domestic installation with new aluminium windows suited to traditional property

Are you wanting to get new windows or doors fitted, but have concerns due to social restrictions currently in place? Or do you have a job with anti-social hours?  If so, don’t worry. Our helpful advice, on how to measure windows and doors for remote pricing, will get your home improvement project started.

Contact your chosen double-glazing installer

Most reputable double-glazing installers, such as Techniglaze will have a system in place for remote pricing. To get the process started simply make an online enquiry. You will then receive a phone call from a friendly professional team member, who will talk through the project with you. If necessary, you will then be sent any available product brochures in PDF format for your consideration. Remember if you have any questions at all, you only have to pick up the phone.

Make sure you have all the tools you need before you start

It is important to have all the equipment ready, prior to taking the measurements. After all you don’t want to be half-way up a ladder and realise your tape measure is out of reach. Wherever possible try to have someone with you when you are taking measurements. They will be able to write the dimensions down, whilst also keeping an eye on you and your safety. Essential equipment you will need is a sturdy step ladder, pencil and paper and retractable tape measure.

How to measure for replacement windows and doors

A professional installation company will not expect your measurements to be 100% accurate, an approximation will do. If possible, try to measure in millimetres, as this is more detailed.  It’s important to take the measurements of the width and height of the brickwork/rendering opening. Please do not take the height and width of the existing door or window frame. If you’re measuring for a first-floor window or above, an internal measurement of the plaster reveals will be fine. You certainly won’t be expected to put yourself at danger! Once you have taken the measurements email them to the company.  It’s super handy to send a photo of the site where you want your windows or doors installed too!

What happens after you have submitted your measurements?

Once your measurements have been received, you should receive a quote within a few working days. It is important to note that this quote will be subject to a survey. However, it will be accurate enough for you to decide if you wish to continue with your project. Most reputable double-glazing firms work from live prices rather than fixed price lists. This means that you will be getting the best current price available.
