This is a question that has probably crossed your mind at least once during your porch build or remodel project. Well, you are in luck! We have some insights that might help make the decision a little easier.

Sunspace’s WeatherMaster Porch Windows are built with light-weight View Flex Vinyl Glazing offering you a luxury look that is made to withstand all seasons. Additionally, each and every window is custom made to easily fit your existing porch layout, saving you from making costly modifications to the structure. Continue reading to learn more about how vinyl porch windows, in our opinion, are superior to glass. 

So, why should you consider vinyl over standard glass windows? Consider these four reasons why:

  • Vinyl windows preserve the "porch" feel. One reason people love a Sunspace 3-season porch is because it gives them the luxury of experiencing the outdoors without necessarily having to be outdoors. Vinyl offers just that.  And because the panels are easy to remove, with just a few steps you can take them down for the summer and enjoy the outdoors with just a screened in porch. Glass windows unfortuantely don't provide that option and make your outdoor space look and feel like just another room in your house. Vinyl porch windows keep out the elements while maintaining the open feeling of an outdoor space. 
  • They last longer as the seasons change. Sunspace’s unique WeatherMaster window system allows you to keep the unique, inviting feeling of a screened-in porch regardless of the season. Our product is designed to keep the elements out while providing 75% ventilation. Much more than your standard windows. Also, our vinyl windows are flexible, as seen in video below, which makes them much more shatter resistant than any other product out there.
