It is very important to measure the window opening correctly. You want to be detailed about the height, width, level and square.

To measure the width of your existing window opening, start to measure the window frame in three areas. Begin with the top of the window, left to right, then the middle, left to right, and then the bottom, left to right. Use the smallest measurement for final your measure.

 

When measuring the height of the window opening, measure the window frame in three areas. Begin with the left side, top to bottom, then the right side, top to bottom, then in the middle, top to bottom. Use the smallest measurement for your final measure.

 

  • The windows should have one primer coat and two coats of paint.
  • You can use any sealing primer.
  • For the paint, either Acrylic (water-based) or Alkyd (oil-based) works fine.
  • Prime the wood first with the sealing primer by running the paint slightly onto the glass. This will seal all the frame work from rain water and will prevent the finished coat of paint from being absorbed into the wood ensuring a even gloss or sheen on the finished product.
  • Using either the Acrylic or the Alkyd paint, paint the wood using the same process as you previously did with the primer allowing to dry thoroughly between coats of paint.
  • You should apply at least two coats of paint.
  • Every 3 to 4 years apply a new coat of paint to your windows.
