I have a vinly single hung window I want to replace but have a question. I do not have a typical stop moulding so where exactly would I take measurement from? Would I measure from inside my current jamb extensions? If i did that then the measurement would be too small since your not including the RO.

Are the inside returns drywall?

Usually you would measure jamb to jamb if you are setting inside the drywall and the replacement frame is deeper so that happens or measure stud to stud and cut back the drywall to accommodate if the siding isn't the smaller measurement.

I have brick siding. If I measure jamb to jamb and go off those measurements then won't the window be too small since im not going off RO measurement?
