At ABEX Impact Windows & Doors, we encourage window shopping with a purpose. When shopping for new windows, knowing your window dimensions is the best way to ensure that your window selection is accurate. Also, knowing how wide is a standard window will help you better gauge the appropriate size for your home. By using standard window dimensions rather than custom made window sizes, you will keep costs low and avoid paying unnecessary premiums. We’ve included an informative list of average window size measurements that will help you make better window decisions. 

What are standard window sizes

By now, you may be wondering what standard window size is. These sizes are typically provided by manufactures as standard sizes that are appropriate for most homes. We take windows for granted since they are just a part of the houses we live in. Yet, your view of the outside world has a significant impact on your quality of life and is offered in average window sizes appropriate for most residences. 

The standard window width depends on what type of window it is. For example, a typical bedroom window is 24 inch by 36 inches, with varying larger sizes. This can vary even more with double-hung windows. However, when window shopping, the sizes are not displayed in inches. The notation of window sizes combines the width and height. So, a window that is 24 inch by 36 inches will read 2436. It’s also important to be aware that the actual window measurements are ½ inch less than the whole notation. In this case, the actual measurements will come out to 23 ½ inches by 35 ½ inches. This happens because the manufacturer adds a ½ inch for easier installation. 

What about double hung window sizes

Double-hung window sizes are the most common window replacement and are typically found throughout the house. In fact, double-hung window sizes are the most popular in Florida. These too come in sizes ranging from 2436 to various larger sizes. Specifically, window widths start at 24 inches going up to 48 inches. Heights range from 36 to 72 inches. Again, all sizes should be adjusted ½ inch less for all window sizes. Double-hung windows are easier to clean, provide more airflow, safer, and come in a tilt in a style that can be cleaned from the inside. These are the most popular style of window.
