When selecting vinyl replacement windows for your home, style and color are just two of the many things that you need to consider. Size is another important factor to take into account. And to help you ensure that you’re getting the correct window size for your home, Woodbridge Home Exteriors shares a few tips below.

Standard Sizing

Windows usually have standard sizes to make shopping easier. Typically, the sizes range from 24 to 48 inches for width and 36 to 72 inches for height. Nevertheless, there may be areas in your home that do not fit these measurements, so opting for custom sizes are more ideal. In this case, it would be best to consult with a window expert to know the right size of window to get.

Floor Area

Floor area is another factor that a window company looks into. For east-facing windows, their size should not exceed 15% of the total floor area of the room. For south-facing windows, the size should not be more than 15% of the total floor area of the room.


Depending on where your home is located, some of your windows may be exposed to more sunlight than other areas. North-facing windows, for instance, can contribute to your heating during winter, so you might want to consider getting larger windows. Nevertheless, don’t forget to take note of other seasons too. In the summer, the heat from your north-facing windows may be too much, so adding eaves and awnings might help.
