In this video, Matt Risinger shows how to replace a casement window in a brick opening. He shares a few quick tips for measuring windows. Matt recommends starting with the center dimension (measuring from brick to brick), then the lower dimension, and finally the upper part of the window. Then, pick the smallest of those measured dimensions and subtract half an inch- that’s should be the width of the window you order.
