Our customers from throughout the New York City area often bring in their own window measurements to get a quote. We can certainly use your measurements to get a general idea of your product cost; however, having your windows professionally measured before purchase and installation will ensure that your treatments fit and function perfectly. You’ll also avoid delays and costly reorder charges that might happen when you do your own measuring.
Start With Correct Measurements
Professional measurement protects your window treatment investment. A few mistakes we often see with DIY measurements include assuming that your windows are all the same size or that your new window treatment can be mounted on the inside of your window, misjudging how different window treatments will hang together, not allowing space for lifting mechanisms or considering current or future motorization features. Finally, many customers assume that all windows are perfectly square—often, they are not.
Steps Our Installers Take
Our certified and professional installers have perfected the process of getting accurate window treatment measurements. First, they measure horizontally at the top, at the center, and at the bottom. Then, they measure vertically along both sides and at the center. Finally, they measure diagonally. Then they combine the measurements to see if the window is truly square.
Inside or Outside Mount?
Professional window treatment installers are specialists in their field. They will consider your home’s architecture—such as your light switches, window moldings, etc.—to be able to recommend the best installation. Correct measurement means knowing where the window treatment is going to be hung in relationship to your window.
- Outside Mount – With this mount, your window treatment is hung outside the window, usually covering the molding or casing. If your windows aren’t square, this is a good option. Plus, it makes your window appear taller.
Inside Mount – With this mount, the window treatment hangs inside your window frame and closest to the glass, providing better insulation.
The Final Details
Finally, professional installers ensure that you have selected the appropriate window treatment and mounting option. They use correct hardware to properly support your new window treatment and protect your window’s frame and molding. When you work with the professional window covering installers at Window Treats, we guarantee that your window treatments will operate perfectly.
