4. Call us at 1-808-238-5634 if you have any questions


Measuring the Width

Inside Bracket Mounting
Measure the exact distance between the points where the brackets are to be placed, inside the window casement. ( We will make allowance for bracket clearance ) MEASURE TOP, MIDDLE AND BOTTOM, CHECKING FOR SMALLER WIDTHS.

Outside Bracket Mounting
Measure between the points where the brackets are to be placed. It is recommended that the brackets be placed to allow 1/2" to 2" overlap on each side of the casement.


Measuring the Length
Measure the full height of your window opening from top frame to lower sill. (We will add 12" to your measurement.) This extra 12" is the "safety margin" to permit the shade to be drawn full length with no danger of it being torn from the roller.


To Replace Old Shades
Measure your old roller, not the cloth, from the outside edge of one metal cap to the other and specify "Tip to Tip", then measure the window opening height next.
