How to Measure for Shutters

Tips to getting started

  • Use a steel tape measure for accuracy, and provide all measurements to the nearest 1/8"
  • Determine if your window has sufficient depth to install as an Inside Mount
  • Always measure width (left to right) first and height (top to bottom) second

Determine Inside or Outside Mount

  • Inside mount shutters are available with Z-Frame or L-Frame options (Requires more depth)
    • Finished framed look
  • Outside mount shutters will cover beyond your window opening in width and height L-Frame only
    • Mounts on trim or wall surface

Measure for Inside Mount

Measure for Inside Mount - Width
  • Start measurement at 1 1/2" deep inside window opening
  • Measure width at the top, middle and bottom of opening edge to edge
  • Record narrowest measurement of the 3 to the nearest 1/8"
Measure for Inside Mount - Height
  • Start height 1 1/2" deep inside window opening in 3 places. Left, middle and right edge to edge
  • Record shortest measurement of the 3 to the nearest 1/8"

**Inside Mount shutter will have a small deduction taken by the factory to fit inside the opening**


Measure for Outside Mount

Measure for Outside Mount - Width
  • Measure the width of the area you want to cover (1 1/2" overlap on each side)
  • Record measurement
Measure for Outside Mount - Height
  • Determine where you want the top of your shutter frame to be positioned and mark the spot
  • Measure height to be covered from the top of marked headrail position to top of sill. If no sill exist, measure down to where you want your shutter to cover (recommend 2" added below window)
  • Record measurement

**Outside Mount shutters will be made to your exact measurement frame edge to frame edge**
