How To Measure Up For New Windows And Doors

Even during this time of lockdown, you can still put through an order for new windows and doors from Bon Accord Glass, as many people are doing via our FREE Online Appointment Service. 

Replacement UPVC Windows

In ordinary circumstances, we would send out a fitter to the home of a customer to measure up ahead of them being fitted at some point in the future, but because of the current restrictions, that isn’t possible. 

We have a solution though – you can measure them for us! It’s actually not a difficult job and we don’t need the measurements to be completely precise. 

They will provide us with a rough guide to the sort of window and door sizes we must produce, and any way, once a quote has been accepted and we’re able to visit, we will take more precise measurements. 

Users of our FREE Online Appointment Service get talked through how to do it, but we thought we’d let you into the secret of doing it here too and also give you some pointers to buying them:


Window buying and measuring

  • Decide on your choice of window material – UPVC, aluminium or timber.
  • Decide on a coloured finish. 
  • When measuring the windows for width and height, go brick-to-brick and do it in millimetres, centimetres or inches.
  • If you want a like-for-like window replacement, take a photograph of your existing windows and send it to us. 
  • If you have seen a particular replacement window design that you like, again, please send us a photograph of it. 


Door buying and measuring

  • Decide on your choice of door material – UPVC, composite, timber. 
  • Decide on a coloured finish.
  • Decide if you want the door to open in or out.
  • Let us know if your current door is hinged on the left or right when looking at it from the outside. 
  • When measuring the door, go brick-to-brick for the width and brick-to-floor for the height in either metric or imperial units. 
  • Take a photograph of the outside of the door and send it to us if you want a like-for-like replacement.
