“Measure twice, cut once” is an old carpenter’s adage with a lot of truth behind it.

Many home improvement retailers offer free measuring services; take advantage of these offers whenever possible to prevent costly errors. If you’re cutting material on your own, have a friend take a measurement for you and compare it with your own measurement.
