How to Calculate How Much Beading Is Required
How do I calculate how much beading I need?
To calculate how much stop / staff bead you need:
- Measure the perimeter of the window frame i.e. height x 2 and width x 2 of window.
- Add together then add at least 100mm on to each measurement to allow for a mitre cut.
To calculate how much parting bead you need:
- Measure vertically from the sill to the head of the frame
- Multiply by two (as you will need this on both sides of the window)
