Measuring Your Windows

Over four decades of experience assures Vertical Vic’s customers the best of custom window coverings. We manufacture vertical blinds, faux wood blinds, and have a fully staffed drapery work room.

When measuring, to insure accuracy, use only a high quality, steel tape measure with a wide blade. Inform your sales associate of any obstructions inside your window frame (locks, screens, crank handles, etc) and inform them of any obstructions outside your window (distance to wall, space to cabinets, etc).

Inside Mount

 

Width (Side to side)

Measure the width of the exact window frame opening in three places (top, middle, bottom). Make note of the smallest of these three measurements (to the nearest 1/8 inch)

Height (Top to bottom)

Measure the exact height of the window in three places (left, middle, right). Make note of the largest of these three measurements (to the nearest 1/8 inch).

Depth (of the window)

Measure the available depths of the window frame. Be careful not to include inside moldings! Measure only the space that is available to install your blinds. Make note of measurements.

Outside Mount

 

Width (Side to side)

Measure the width from edge to edge across the top of your window frame. Make note of the measurement to the nearest 1/8 inch.

Height (Top to bottom)

Measure the height from the upper edge to the lower edge of your window frame. Make note of the measurement to the nearest w1/8 inch.

Do not make any adjustments to your measurements. Your Vertical Vic’s sales associate will make any necessary adjustments. If you have a window sill, measure how far it protrudes from the wall, and overall depth.
