Beware of discounters selling metric sizes or off color blocks - Remember the Latin phrase - caveat emptor (which means let the buyer beware). Although metric sizes can work in openings you are creating new the standard metric sizes usually do not fit existing masonry and rough openings in the United States market. Another trick some 'discounters' will use is to sell off color glass blocks. These are blocks where the shading or hue of the blocks may be inconsistent from size to size or from block to block. Evaluate the quality of your potential supplier starting with their web site, to the staff that answers your questions on the phone, to the manufacturers they use - Pittsburgh Corning and Mulia are two of the highest quality manufacturers in the market today. If the pricing seems too good to be true it just might be.
Quite a few people are comfortable with the Johari Window idea. This was an instrument of understanding created by Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham in 1955. It is still used extensively today, in almost all corners of existence. The value in management has not really declined over time.
Buy Prefabricated Window Panels Factory Direct - Since a large percentage of block windows are made to order due to sizing differences with the existing windows being replaced, why invest unnecessary time going to supply yards and retailers who rarely sell custom sized block windows? As long as you have your opening sizes the windows can be prefabricated and shipped directly to you anywhere in the United States. There is generally a substantial price saving to you versus having to find a skilled mason to put the windows together and the quality is higher since the windows are built in the factory, not at the project site. Consumers in states like North & South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and Louisiana where masons are harder to find have found this service beneficial.
If someone is making the curtains for you just give them the sizes as measured. If your having a go at making yourself then (take a tranquilizer) you need to multiply all your width sizes by 2.5 to allow for gather.
Next measure and make a note of both outside straight edges up to where the arch starts. Finally at each of the markers on your window sill measure straight up from the sill to where the tape measure touches the curve. make a note for a these vertical measurements. It"s a good idea to make a quick sketch of the window and jot your sizes next to the places where you measured.
