How to Measure For Shutters:
There are basically two types of installations: Inside Mount and Outside Mount.
The first thing to look for on an inside mount is that there is enough depth to the window for the shutter to operate. A good rule of thumb to follow is that on a 2 1/2″ louvre you should have 2 inches of clear depth on the inside casing of the window, and 2 1/2″ of clear depth on the inside casing of the window for a 3 1/2″ louvre. This depth will allow enough room for the louvres to turn and space for the magnetic catches to be installed.
Next measure the width of the opening. Measuring at three locations, top, middle and bottom of the opening, record the smallest (narrowest) measurement. Next, measure the inside height. Measuring at the left, centre and right areas of the opening record the shortest of these three measurements.
NOTE: If any of the width measurement vary by more than 1/2″ or any of the height measurements vary more than 1/2″, an inside installation cannot be properly done. Cadillac will make factory deductions, so your shutters will fit. You are required to provide us with the opening sizes only.
First, measure the width of the window from outside of trim to outside of trim at the top, centre and bottom and record the widest measurement. Next, measure the height of the window from outside to outside of trim at the left, centre and right of the window, recording the largest measurement.
An outside mount will normally consist of a four piece frame which will be mounted around the outside of the window trim, creating a box in which the shutters will be hung. Make sure your measurements are exact to the 1/16th of an inch in order to provide a proper fit for your shutters.
For windows with no trim, measure your opening sizes as described above and add two inches to your width and two inches to your length, in order to wall mount your shutters.
