Installation Instructions 

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.

  1. Center and square up window frame in opening. Fasten a screw into each corner.
  2. Use shims if needed to maintain the same width in the middle of the window as in the top and bottom. An “hourglass” shape will result in window panels that are too loose.
  3. Fasten the sides with screws at each meeting rail (see Outside view diagram below)
  4. Fasten the header and sill with one screw in the middle.
  5. If needed, tighten the screen by removing the spline on one vertical side, pull the screen tight, and insert the spline. Trim off excess screen being careful not to slice inside of the splines.
