We want to make sure your windows are perfect. We've put together instructions on how to measure for your new windows, along with helpful tips found below. Please know, we can only ship the single window units that are up to 54" wide and 108" tall.
At this point, we can finalize product selections, colors, and other options before securing time on our production schedule.
Next, we will place the order for your custom-made products. You can expect your windows to arrive within 8-12 weeks from the order date.
The final step is installation, please watch this helpful video to get you started and review additional installation details below!
Sunspace Porch Windows are available in five frame colors and four vinyl tint options to match your style.
Sunspace Porch Windows have a 1” flange around the perimeter so you need to have a flat surface on the exterior that is 1” thick or greater. Double-check on the top and bottom of the framing to make sure there is something to catch the flanges and is flush with the vertical posts. If you are placing windows next to each other, there needs to be at least 2” of framing in between them. We do offer mulled units of double and triple wide windows up to 12’ wide that do not require framing inside that opening, but these are not available for shipping. We can only ship the single window units that are up to 54" wide and 108" tall.
Height: 42" to 108"
Width: 12" to 54"
Windows can be installed between posts with no interior or exterior trim. We measure these as tightly as possible to minimize gaps. Typical deduction is 1/4” off the rough opening resulting in a 1/8” gap around all 4 sides that can be sealed with the caulking that comes with the windows. In this case, we would install the windows with our color matched screws for a finished exterior look.
Windows have a 2” jamb depth and 1” of frame visible inside.
Option 1: Windows can be installed onto rough framing or sheathing and then have interior trim applied after window install. Exterior trim can be placed over top of the window flanges. In this case we will install windows with flat head screws.
Option 2: Windows can be installed on top of exterior trim boards and then have interior trim used.
Option 3: Windows in-set into openings for an exterior railing to be used.
Sunspace porch windows have a 1” flange and are designed to be fastened through this flange into framing structure. Silicone caulking and color matched screws are provided.

"Brandon did a great job helping me select windows for a screen porch at our lake cabin. He was very good at explaining how the windows were constructed and how to install them. He allowed me to see windows installed at a place of business before my purchase. He was always ready to answer questions before and after I bought windows"
