Practical Tips To Remember When Measuring Windows For Window Film
• Most residential windows have straight sides that are fairly easy to measure. Always measure the inside of the window as that is where the window film will be applied.
Measure the width from left to right Measure the length from top to bottom
Add an extra inch to each side to allow for error in cutting and installation. If you are requesting a patterned film, allow extra few inches to accommodate the pattern.
• Check all windows carefully for any cracks or defects and get them replaced. Applying window film to a damaged window could cause the crack to lengthen as the window contracts and expands.
• Remember to measure the inside of the window, glass only, as that is where the film is applied. Do not include the window frame in the measurement.
• Use a long, preferably flexible, tape measure. Don’t try and measure with a ruler or a tape measure that is too short as your measurement may be inaccurate.
• Get someone to help you, especially if the windows are large. You are bound to make a mistake if you attempt to measure a large area alone.
• Double check all your measurements and calculations before submitting them.
• Write all the measurements in a notebook, not loose pieces of paper that can get lost. Label each drawing carefully so you are clear as to the window you are referring to and ensure you write neatly so the measurements are not misinterpreted.
