Standard Windows Sizes & Customized Window Sizes 

Standard Windows Sizes & Customized Window Sizes 

Standard window sizes are those sizes that fit most of the rough openings, which you could be easy to find in most manufacturers. However, there might be some openings with uncommon sizes, which requires customized sizes.

Standard Window Sizes

In modern housing, casement windows are more popular while double hung windows are often seen in classic buildings. Casement adds modern elements to a home. The most common window sizes for casement are : for width, they range from 14 inches to 35.5 inches, that’s 355 mm to 900 mm. For height, they range from 29.5 inches to 77.5 inches, that’s 749 mm to 1969 mm.

Fixed windows, or picture windows, are also popular in modern housing to invite huge amount of light into the room. Usually you see them more in the living rooms. As fixed windows do not open, so there is much flexibility in sizes of fixed windows. For width, they range from 24 inches to 96 inches, that’s 609 mm to 2438 mm.

However, if your houses are with some irregular shape windows and doors, customized size is better for your unique projects. They are made to tailor your opening and housing style.And customized sized windows do make you have more flexible design to represent your taste.

And aluminum is strong which means slimmer aluminum profile is good to make windows. Aluminum windows is good for modern style houses. Vinyl windows don’t come in many colors and design and they don’t allow for much options. And aluminum won’t warp like vinyl.

Budgetary And Service Life
