There are only seven measurements and one critical observation for obstructions that are necessary to ensure a perfect job every time. When you measure the window you should be recording a picture of that window with your measurements that will allow any window treatment to be made without your having to return for more measurements. These abbreviations are my own and are not considered "industry standards".
