To ensure that a smooth transaction is made measurements need to be accurate and precise. We have provided a guide on how to measure your doors and windows to ensure that time and mistakes are saved. Measureing a door or window is simple but mistakes are easily made. Take note of the following methods when measuring your door.
Measure the fram outside on both the height and the width. Always measure the exact brickwork opening and NOT the old door frame as this is a common mistake.
Measure brick to brick in at least three different places and deduct 10mm from both the final height and width measurements.
The width should be measured brick to brick at the three points - top, middle and bottom of the opening.
(See Figure 1)
