Firstly, what is a window pane?
A window is typically made up of more than one pane. A “pane of glass” is a piece of glass surrounded by a frame on all sides. You will want to count each individual pane of glass separately. Just remember that if a window is separated by a frame, it counts as more than one. Shown in the image below.
How do I count my window panes?
Most of our clients find it is easiest to gather their own pane count. This is typically a fast and easy process that will allow us to give you an estimate of the cost of the job. We recommend that you take a pen and paper and walk the perimeter of your home to count up the window panes. Our over-the-phone estimates are primarily for your convenience and to give us an idea of the scope of work involved as well as the amount of time the job will take.
