Full Answer

Sliding windows in the United Stated typically have widths of 36, 48, 60, 72 or 84 inches and heights of 24, 36, 48 or 60 inches.

The above sizes are the rough window sizes and are about 1/2 inch larger than the actual windows. For example, a double-hung window classed for a 24-by-44-inch rough opening would actually be 23.5 by 43.5 inches. The rough opening for a window should be made to be 24 by 44-inches; the additional 1/2 inch of space in each direction makes installation easier. Once the window is properly centered, the installer adds shims to keep it in place while attaching it to the rough opening.

Windows are often identified by a number describing the width and height of the rough opening in feet and inches. For example, a 2-foot-by-2.5-foot window would be identified by the number 2025.
