Before we Start
To measure an exact size (opening) for door shutter you must need to have a measuring tape. We recommend you to use a standard measuring tape which is stiff even for measuring a longer distance. Here is an example of a good measuring tape. Good quality measuring tapes come with a scratch guard which is assumed to be of good quality for longer durability. Most of the highest quality measuring tapes are verified by Legal Metrology for its scale. We want to you be assured that tapes are providing right measures and there are no mistakes in the tape that you prefer to use. It is always useful to have someone accompany you rather than taking a measurement on your own.
Once you are ready with measuring tape, a final check needs to be done in ensuring your door frames are in good shape and size. While ordering the door shutters you will have to be sure in the perfectness of door frame. A door shutter will be delivered based on the measures provided by you while ordering a door shutter. Of course, we have a process where we can have a video call with you to recheck on the door size. But it is important to have it right in the first place to avoid any subsequent hassles in delivering high-quality products.
Make sure you understand the metrics being used on your measuring tape. For highest accuracy, we at woodartguru measure the door dimensions in Mili Meter (MM). Most of the high-quality measuring tapes use the meter as metrics which makes it more comfortable to take measure in Mili Meter.
