[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”50″][vc_column_text]This page is designed to assist you in measuring for window and door screens. While we, will assist you, the final measurements will be your responsibility.

Often you may be able to measure a screen from your neighbor who has the same window. If you live in an apartment complex, a townhome, or condo your neighbor will often have the same screen. Perhaps they will be kind enough to allow you to measure their existing screen.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]


The simplest way of measuring is to measure your existing screens. Provide the width, length and then the thickness of the frame.

Then determine which if any hardware or screen clips are needed and where they are located on the screen ( which side and how far from the edge of the screen).

Although screens may be different sizes on your house you may often be able to determine how to measure by looking at existing screens. Look at from what point to what point the frame fits into the window.

One of the most common types of screens are the spring loaded type. Below is a drawing of how you would measure this type. Tabs will go on opposite side of the tension springs. Springs go on the side where the screen fits into the deepest channel.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]screen measurement[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]


Usually, to measure for sliding screen doors you need to do the following:

1. Measure from the top of the bottom track up into the top U channel about 3/8″ inch.

2. Measure the width from the side jamb about 1 to 2 inches past the center of the doorway, just short of where the stationary glass begins.

3. Check your height measurements in 3 places, center, and both ends and take the smallest of the 3 measurements.
