Measuring for screen and thickness of frame

A contractor from Cos Cob, CT says:
Should I order exact measurements of width and height or should I subtract 1/16" or maybe 1/8".

Also what is the thicknees of your screen flexible frame?
A contractor from Cos Cob, CT says:
You followed up my question with a question, just like my wife.

width of frame for screen is 24-3/4". Height is 49-3/4".

My question again is should I order your flex screen a little smaller then exact opening size, say 1/16" or 1/8".

I also asked for the thickness of your screens frame.

Thanks for posting. You should order based on your exact measurements, as per the diagrams we show for how to measure your window. It's important to measure your window just as we show, since our FlexScreen doesn't install like normal screens. As for thickness, it's approximately 5/16" x 5/16".

Didn't see diagram.
