Common Clad Window Sizes
October 11, 2010
Clad windows offer low maintenance aluminum clad exteriors and the ability to finish the interior of the window in your choice of colors. Wood clad windows are available in many different styles such as single and double-hung, sliding, or casement to name a few, and each style has a wide selection of standard sizes to pick from when choosing replacement windows for your home. The various styles and sizes of clad windows usually make it easy to find windows to fit your home's existing openings, but if you happen to have a home with uniquely sized openings, many window companies offer custom clad window sizes.
A big advantage to choosing clad windows as replacement units for your home is that with the wide range of window styles available and each having many standard sizes to select from, there is a good chance you can find clad windows to slide right into your existing openings without modifications being necessary. If you choose clad windows in a style matching your existing windows, you may be able to find the exact size you need.
Common clad window sizes for double and single-hung windows often range from 28 inches to 36 inches wide and 52 inches to 74 inches tall. Standard clad casement window sizes often range from 20 inches to 36 inches wide and 32 inches to 48 inches tall and doubling these widths can give you an idea of common clad sliding window sizes. There are many sizes available outside of these ranges, and choosing other styles such as awning, hopper, or picture windows can give you even more of a size selection for your home.
Some window companies realize there may be occasions when homeowners are unable to find standard clad window sizes to fit their existing openings, so they offer the option of having custom sized clad windows built.
