A housing estate may standardize on a particular size, but on a wider scale
there is no
standard (that I know of).

However, it is increasingly common that windows are built in a factory
somewhere in the
middle of nowhere and orders for those windows are taken in shops in urban
centres.  There
are still places in towns that cut glass, fashion frames and assemble
windows, but often it's
just a place that takes orders which they send off to the factory.
