If you’re looking for an article on how to get the exact measurements for your new windows to achieve a perfect fit, you’ve come to the right place. But, you won’t find any detailed self-help information here, or a manufacturer’s “guide” to replacement window measuring. At Window Nation, we take the guess work out of measuring new windows–and we do it for free. How cool is that?

You don’t have to read a long do-it-yourself list of instructions, and you don’t have to wonder if you’ve done everything right. The best way to measure for replacement windows is to have a certified professional do it. And it is even better when that certified professional works for the company that is installing your windows. If any mistakes happen, you’re not going to be left eating the cost.

When you have a Window Nation technician do your measurements, you don’t have to know whether or not you have 2×4 or 2×6 studs. You don’t have to account for the materials your walls are made of, based on the age of the home. You don’t have to be familiar with what windows you currently have and how they differ from the windows you want to replace them with. You don’t have to know that accounting for the insulation in the trim of your new windows is vital in getting an accurate measurement. Your technician will worry about all the details.

It is also important to understand that we don’t send a salesperson to your home when you request a free in-home estimate. We send a technician with the experience needed to make sure you’re going to get the right window measurements for the new windows you’re getting. Our measure technicians average 80,000 windows measured. That is why 99.5% of the windows we install fit perfectly the first time!

You can also count on your Window Nation Measure Tech to measure down to 3 mm, ensuring a precise and tight seal. We don’t want you to lose any of the energy benefits of your new windows. Because, when you feel the difference your new window make to the internal comfort level of your home, you’re going to tell people about it. We’re counting on that.

We also want to make sure your new windows keep the moisture out. The last thing you need is to find out your walls have mold in them. It doesn’t matter if you did the measurements or we did the measurements when you find mold. You’re not going to be happy about it, and we are not in the business of making unhappy customers.

Through the years, we have installed a lot of windows, and we have learned a lot along the way. One of the most important things we’ve learned is that, no matter how much experience and education a technician has, mistakes can still happen. That is why we require our measure techs to measure each opening three times. They also follow an 18-point checklist, which includes a step-by-step review process to make sure we’ve done everything possible to make the replacement window installment a joy.

At the end of the day, what matters most to us is that we have met, or exceeded, your expectations. We want to know that you’re happy with your purchase and the service you’ve received. We want you to tell others about how impressed you were with how knowledgeable and friendly your technicians were. We want you to tell everyone how much you love your new windows. We want you to tell the world! Sure, it is a little selfish on our part. After all, your happiness helps our bottom line. But, this is a kind of selfishness we can live with.

So, put down that tape measure. Relax. We’ve got you covered. You can trust the experienced and knowledgeable technicians here at Window Nation to measure those replacement windows, and get you ready for your new replacement windows.
