If you need a chair or ladder ensure you follow safety guidelines on the product and try to get someone else to supervise, (they can also note down measurements as you measure)
If your elderly or have mobility issues you can take a photo of the window/ door and just note down the length, we should be able to estimate the height from this.
If you have a combination of opening and fixed windows – you might find it easy to draw them – write the measurements on the drawing and take a photo and email the photo to us.
You can fold the measuring tape so that it reaches higher and read the number on the fold.
Use the Iphone Measuring app. Search your phone for the “Measure” app and use this app to measure things which are in front of you.
All we need to know is the height and width, and if there are any window openings.

Please let us know if the windows open and where.
