How to Measure Your Enclosure: A Step-by-Step Guide

Before we can build custom patio enclosures, we need some specific measurements. Fortunately, it’s a simple process. Watch the video and/or follow these written instructions to get accurate measurements for your vinyl patio enclosure.

  • Prepare
    • Grab a tape measure, a pen, a piece of paper, and a trusted friend.
  • Measure Section #1
    • Approach the enclosure on the left side (section #1).
    • First, measure the width.
    • To measure your enclosure height, extend the tape measure from the very bottom to the tallest point. If your roof has an angle, measure the tallest side, then measure the shortest side to the tallest point.
  • Measure Section #2
    • Approach the midsection (side #2). This is the longest section.
    • Measure the width from one end to the other, including the door if it doesn’t come with a glass insert.
    • Measure the maximum height from the ground to the very top.
  • Measure Section #3
    • Approach the right side of the enclosure (section #3).
    • Once again, measure the maximum width.
    • Measure and record the maximum height.
  • Submit Your Measurements
