When considering replacing vinyl windows, one of the first concerns is how to get the right measurement. You want the size(s) of your new vinyl windows to match that of the windows you are replacing. Certainly, it can't take a rocket scientist to measure and replace vinyl windows with the dimensions you need. Unfortunately, the process of size and windows may not take a Steven Hawking, but can be complicated.
The good news is that the number of vinyl windows companies and manufactures is plentiful which gives you more selection. The stumbling block to this is that each one has their own set of windows types which beget a vast array of vinyl window sizes, dimensions and measurements. Suppose you want to buy new vinyl windows from Pella or Milgard, but your old windows are Anderson windows.

The more common the window type (i.e., single or double hung windows), the more luck you may have finding the window size you need. That said, there are ranges of sizes that vinyl replacement windows come in. Typically, double or single hung windows are sized about 24 to 30 inches wide and approximately 48 to 56 inches high.
Each room in you home can dictate not only the type of vinyl window you choose but also its size. Ranges of windows sizes, though not specific, can give you a better idea of the typical sizes available.

Even larger retail outlets like Home Depot or Lowe's may not have the vinyl windows sizes you need as they cater more to new construction sizing.
Nevertheless, here are some common prefabricated vinyl window sizes:
