Window Width

You will need to measure the width of the window in three places – top, middle ands bottom. The tape measure should be measuring from the widest part in between the left and right window jambs. If you have a sash, remove it from the way to take accurate measurements. Take the same measurement at the bottom, middle and top of the window. The smallest size measured is your window width size.
