How To ‘DIY’ A Porch Life Sunroom

by | Mar 9, 2022 | Uncategorized

Did you know you can order and install your own Porch Life windows? Other competitors don’t normally offer this DIY option. We saw this issue in the market and decided to help DIYers like you! And get this, we made it super easy! From purchasing to installing, this article will show you how easy it is to work our custom 4-track windows and doors.

Order Process

We make it easy to order your windows and doors. All you have to do is reach out to us and request a quote for your measurement here. Let us know that you’d like to install the windows and doors yourself, from then we will work with you to get it shipped over.

Install Process

By using quality engineering to create our windows and doors, its structure is simple to install and work with. Before starting the installation, we have some important things to note:

  • Minimal tools will be needed to do the install just make sure to have a tape measure, level, drill/screw gun, hack saw or miter saw, screw driver, and a pencil.
  • Understand the rough opening and that the closer you are to a perfect square the easier it will be to install windows and doors.
  • Follow our instructions

Us VS the Competition

Our custom 4-track windows and doors can transform any outdoor space into a 3-season oasis. Our proprietary Flexiglaze is so durable you don’t ever have to stress about the elements of nature, kids, or baseballs damaging your glazing. We offer two screen options; standard and premium. Both are great options; the standard is great for letting in a cool breeze and premium goes next level with its top-tier rip resistance. We also are completely custom, so you can pick and choose all of your options and colors to make your new sunroom uniquely fit you and your home!

Customer Testimonial

One of our customers, Joe Malecki, chose to self-install our 4-track windows and doors to create a 3-season sunroom. He says he was pretty nervous about self-installing, thinking it’d be a significant project and wasn’t sure how great our memory vinyl would hold up. Well, take a look at what he ended up saying about it after 70-MPH winds and a tornado touched down nearby.

You could see the vinyl moving because it’s a flexible product, but you know, everything just held up just fantastic. I would definitely recommend yours (system). If somebody is asking me about these types of 4-track systems based on my experience, your product as far as I’m concerned is highly recommended.

We used this window system on a 3-Season Room project recently and they were great. Easy to order, quick to deliver and easy to install....and they look fantastic too! Already have had many people ask about them and will most certainly use them again.

We love our new windows and would recommend them to anyone considering these windows. We contracted with another supplier for the doors but we’re not pleased with the lead-times and scheduling delays. So we contracted direct with Porch Life for the windows. The ordering process was easy and seamless. The windows were exactly what we wanted and expected. We installed the windows ourself as the installation is pretty simple. I would suggest careful measuring and measure multiple times to ensure the windows will fit as expected. We are very pleased with our purchase.

We love the windows we purchased from Porch Life. We upgraded our deck to a sun room and the windows help the room look so open and inviting. When they arrived, they were well protected and no damage. The windows were made to the precise measurements sent to them and fit perfectly in the openings we had prepared. Great value for these windows. Their customer service is fantastic, too.

Transformed our back porch into a great three season room. Just wish we did it years ago. Andrea was great throughout the whole process. Can’t wait to see how long we can use it with the north east winter coming. Installation was easier than expected; took two of us about half a day. Thanks for everything.

Andrea was great to work with. She did all she could to ensure I had a positive experience from start to finish. After I discovered several pieces were damaged during shipping, Andrea helped me work through the claim process to obtain replacements. I am pleased with the construction and material of the 4-track windows. The installation steps are straightforward. The openings on my porch required 4 twin units. For wthat it's worth, if I were to do again, I would leave 1/4" per joined unit (or min. 1/2 total) rather than 1/4" per rough opening. In short, I'm happy with the product and very happy with the service I received from Andrea and Porch Life Direct.

We ordered the 4 track windows for our back porch to enclose it. We needed help measuring and Andrea was super helpful with that and answered all of questions so we felt really good about tackling a DIY project with these windows. Everything came as described and we simply followed her videos to get them installed. I definitely give Porch Life a thumbs up for making our outdoor living space project super easy. Thankyou!

1-30-2023 Andrea @ Porch Conversions- We have really enjoyed our “new porch windows”. We can sit out there when sun warms it up. The temperature outside might be mid-forties and with the sun it can be mid-fifties on the porch; and the space heater kicks in some extra comfort. We hope for the best weather when our kids ( and kiddos) come in February from NYC and the Netherlands . Our two man team got the windows installed in less than a half day; and they look GREAT! We’ve told a bunch of friends how easy it was dealing with you and your company - the best - quick and the price was right! Also, we were most pleased to get the replacement screens for two windows and our contractor got them installed in about 40 minutes. Overall you get a very high mark for service, friendliness, sense of humor and being so easy to work with - many, many smiles! Come see us in the mountains of southwest Virginia and see the handiwork. All the best Buz Booker Pulaski, Va
