Re: What size to order given diagonal measurement difference?

Ok, got it. My old wood windows are single hung, so the top of the top sash is hidden by the top exterior stop and top parting bead. The bottom sash has enough play in it that I can't tell the squareness of the frame from it. Given this scenario, how then would you judge the "squareness" of the fram...

(Only difference is my existing windows don't have a wooden vertical parting bead - the aluminum jamb liner has the parting...

Thanks to everyone who posts on this forum, it has been very helpful. I'm replacing (DIY) 21 wood single-pane windows with white vinyl windows. Twenty will be double hung (11 32x54, 7 32x74, 2 24x62) and one is a picture window (48x62). I don't have access to several of the brands I've seen recommen...
