You can watch the video below about measuring your opening.

Planning and Preparation

Before diving into the installation process, it is crucial to plan and prepare for the project. Start by measuring your porch windows’ dimensions and determine the number of windows needed. Consider the type of material you want for the frames, such as aluminum or vinyl, based on your preferences and budget. Gather all the necessary tools, including a tape measure, level, screwdriver, drill, safety goggles, and gloves, to ensure a smooth installation process.

Removing the Old Windows (if applicable)

If you already have existing porch windows, you will need to remove them before installing the EzVue™ Porch Windows. Carefully remove any screws or nails securing the windows to the frame. Gently pry the windows away from the frame, ensuring not to damage the surrounding structure. Dispose of the old windows responsibly, and clean the area thoroughly.

Installing the Window Frames

Begin by positioning the EzVue™ Porch Window frames in their designated locations. Ensure that they are level and plumb using a level and adjust as necessary. Once properly aligned, secure the frames to the porch structure using screws provided by the manufacturer. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines (Porch Conversions) regarding the appropriate size and type of screws to use.

Inserting the Vinyl Window Panes

Once the frames are securely in place, it’s time to insert the EzVue™ window panes. Start by removing any protective covering from the panes. Carefully slide the window panes into the frames, ensuring they fit snugly and securely. Be cautious not to apply excessive force that could damage the windows. Double-check that the panes are level and aligned correctly within the frames.

Sealing and Insulating

To ensure optimal weatherproofing and insulation, apply a high-quality sealant around the edges of the EzVue™ Porch Windows. This step is essential for preventing drafts, and water leaks, and maintaining energy efficiency. Follow the sealant manufacturer’s instructions for application and curing times. Inspect the windows from both the interior and exterior to ensure a thorough seal.

Testing and Maintenance

Before declaring the project complete, thoroughly test the functionality of the EzVue™ Porch Windows. Open and close the windows to ensure they operate smoothly. Check for any gaps or air leaks that might compromise insulation. Annually inspect and clean the windows to maintain their pristine condition over time. Refer to the manufacturer’s maintenance recommendations for guidance. Watch the video below for the correct operation of EzVue™ windows.

Get Your Porch Ready For Spring with DIY Vinyl Windows

Your porch or patio is a transitional space that connects you to the outdoors when summer arrives. There are many different configurations in people’s homes that range from completely enclosed spaces (often called four-season rooms) to screen porches and open stone patios or wooden decks by the pool. The possibilities really are endless when you design your outdoor living space or simply enclose your porch area to extend your indoor living space for 3 seasons or more.

Do-It-Yourself Solutions

Why should you consider vinyl over standard glass windows? 

Consider these four reasons why:

Vinyl windows preserve the “porch” feel. 

One reason people love a Porch Life vinyl window porch is that it gives them the luxury of experiencing the outdoors without necessarily having to be outdoors. Vinyl offers just that.  The panels are also easy to remove. With just a few steps you can take them down for the summer and enjoy the outdoors with a screened-in porch. Glass windows unfortunately don’t provide that option and make your outdoor space look and feel like just another room in your house. Vinyl porch windows keep out the elements while maintaining the open feeling of having an outdoor space. 

Vinyl windows last longer through seasonal change

Porch Life’s customized window system allows you to keep the inviting feeling of a screened-in porch regardless of the season. Our product is designed to keep the elements out while providing 75% ventilation. Much more than your standard windows. Also, our vinyl windows are flexible, which makes them much more shatter resistant than any other product out there. Children and pets don’t stand a chance!

They require less maintenance

Porch Conversions porch windows by Porch Life are made with sturdy aluminum frames that don’t require any painting or staining. The durable Flex Vinyl has UV inhibitor built right into it so it keeps its transparency and durability. We guarantee it! Just clean the panels every 6 months, and your vinyl windows will last a lifetime!

Glass windows are made for inside the house and not for an unconditioned outdoor space. Porch Life Windows are low maintenance and designed specifically for use in a porch or sunroom and will stand up to the harsh Minnesota climate.
