Installing EzVue™ Porch Windows: Your Questions Answered

Transforming your porch into a versatile living space can greatly enhance the comfort and value of your home. One of the best ways to achieve this is by installing porch windows. Among the many options available in the market, EzVue™ Porch Windows have gained significant popularity due to their durability, ease of installation, and aesthetic appeal. In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of installing EzVue™ Porch Windows yourself, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful, weatherproof porch nearly all year round.

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.

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

We love our new windows. We were originally going to go with just a screened in porch. After seeing some examples and talking to Porch Life Direct it was an easy choice to go this route. We turned a porch from something we would use in the summer to something we use throughout most of the year. They are extremely easy to install, easy to maintain and even easier to use. We couldn't be happier with our decision!
