Winter months often bring with them a lull in home improvement projects. The cold weather and shorter days can make it challenging to take on outdoor tasks. However, for those looking to transform their porches into multi-seasonal spaces, winter is the perfect time to embark on a DIY porch window project, especially with Porch Life’s EzVue Memory Vinyl Windows.

Why Choose Porch Life’s EzVue Memory Vinyl Windows?

Porch Life, a renowned name in the realm of outdoor living spaces, offers the revolutionary EzVue Memory Vinyl Windows from Porch Conversions™. These windows are:

1. Initial Costs:

Memory Vinyl Windows are affordable and durable: Designed to be both cost-effective and long-lasting, these windows provide homeowners with a value-for-money solution for their porch enclosures.

  • Material Cost: Memory vinyl windows are generally more affordable than traditional glass windows.
  • Installation Cost: These windows are designed for easy installation, often without the need for extensive framing or structural changes. This can lead to reduced labor costs.
  • Durability: EzVue™ memory vinyl windows by Porch Conversions™ can withstand impacts from children, animals, and even baseball bats. They reshape their form quickly making them safe for active porch areas.

Glass Porch Windows:

  • Material Cost: Traditional glass windows, especially if you opt for double-pane or tempered glass, can be much more expensive than memory vinyl.
  • Installation Cost: Glass windows typically require more intricate framing, sealing, and installation processes, potentially increasing labor costs. In almost all cases, you’ll need to hire a professional contractor.

2. Maintenance and Longevity Costs:

Memory Vinyl Windows:

  • Maintenance: Memory vinyl is durable and resistant to common issues like rotting and corrosion. Cleaning is straightforward, usually requiring just a wipe-down.
  • Longevity: While memory vinyl is durable, its lifespan might be shorter than some high-quality glass options, however a few memory vinyl window replacements over the years will not compare to the cost of professionally installed glass windows.

Glass Porch Windows:

  • Maintenance: Glass windows require regular cleaning to maintain clarity. They can also be prone to smudging and streaking.
  • Longevity: With proper care, glass windows can last for decades. However, they are susceptible to cracks and breaks, which can lead to high replacement costs.

3. Energy Efficiency and Associated Costs:

Memory Vinyl Windows:

  • Memory vinyl windows offer excellent insulation, helping maintain a consistent temperature in the porch area for 3 1/2 seasons. This can lead to energy savings if you decide to have the porch integrated into part of the home’s HVAC system, or if you use a fireplace in this space. When closed, EzVue™ memory vinyl windows shield against rain, snow, wind, and almost 98% of the sun’s harmful rays. When open, they offer an impressive 75% ventilation, letting in the fresh air while keeping out bugs and dust.

Glass Porch Windows:

  • The energy efficiency of glass windows largely depends on their type. Double-pane or insulated glass windows can offer good insulation, but single-pane windows might not be as effective.

4. Resale Value:

Both memory vinyl and glass porch windows can enhance the resale value of a home. However, the exact value addition might vary based on regional preferences, the overall design of the porch, and current market trends. For DIY enthusiasts or homeowners who do not have luxury home budgets, Porch Life vinyl windows are easy to have custom-sized to fit existing openings without the need for expensive reframing. Whether you have a standard screen porch, sunroom, covered patio, or deck, these windows can transform it into a space you can enjoy almost year-round.

Winter: The Ideal Time for a Porch Window Project

While it might seem counterintuitive, winter is an excellent time to undertake a porch window project for several reasons:

  1. Preparation for the Upcoming Seasons: By working on the project in winter, your porch will be ready to use by spring, allowing you to make the most of the warmer months.
  2. Lesser Distractions: With fewer outdoor activities in winter, homeowners can dedicate more time and focus to their DIY projects.
  3. Work at Your Own Pace: The off-season means there’s no rush. You can take your time to ensure every detail is perfect.

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
