Are you thinking of installing new windows? Then it might be time to dust off your measuring tape and put your skills to the test!

Allowing them to handle measurements ensures they’re responsible for any mistakes, not you, and they’ll take measurements multiple times throughout the estimate and installation process.
DunRite Windows & Doors will happily measure and order the correct windows for a flawless install every time, if you’re interested in a price quote. However, here’s a quick tutorial if it’s something you prefer to do yourself.

Both are NOT something we’d recommend.
