How To Get Your Windows And Doors Measured Up


The First Minister has instructed us all to continue to stay at home for the moment to protect the NHS and save lives, which obviously prevents us from being able to conduct surveys for customers. 

Georgian Style Windows

But we very much remain open for business at Mitchell Glass should you be interested in getting windows and doors fitted for after the lockdown has ended – enquiries and orders are still being handled, with plenty of the team here to help. 

Many of these enquiries and orders are coming through our FREE Online Design Service. If you try it out yourself, you will be told on the video-call that we’ll need you to take some measurements of your windows and doors, which is actually a pretty easy thing to do, believe it or not. 

Clear instructions on how to do this will be given, which we’ll sum up here for you too:

Windows

  • With a tape measure, you need to measure both the width and height of your windows. 
  • Measure the width and height of the windows by going brick-to-brick, and record the measurements in millimetres, centimetres or inches. 
  • One of our fitters will pay a visit at a safe time to take the exact measurements, so don’t worry if they are slightly off.
  • Choose what window material you want – UPVC, aluminium or timber
  • Choose a window design and colour.
  • A photograph of your windows from the outside is always handy if you want a like-for-like replacement design. 
  • If you want a new window design and have an example of it, please show us. 

Doors

  • With a tape measure, you need to measure both the width and height of your windows. 
  • Measure the width of the door by going brick-to-brick, and measure the height of the door by going brick-to-floor, recording the measurements in metric or imperial units. 
  • We need to know if you want your new door to open inwards or outwards. 
  • We also need to know if your existing door is hinged on the left or right when you look at it from the outside. 
  • Choose what door material you want – UPVC, composite or timber.
  • A photograph of your door from the outside is always handy if you want a like-for-like replacement design. 

 

It hopefully won’t be too much longer until we can come and do the measuring ourselves, but doing some measuring for us in the meantime is a useful stopgap.
