Heavy Snows Reveal Need for New Porch Windows in South Shore

Over 1,000 homes served in over 40 years of business

“As beautiful as the winter weather may be, I need it to be outdoors,” Eve said. The recent storm had some significant winds that blew the snow up against her South Shore home. “There are literally drifts on the porch,” she said. “Enough where I had to have my son shovel. And that’s ridiculous. I’m clearly going to need new porch windows.”

That famous New England thrifty tendency means many South Shore homeowners have porch windows that have been repurposed from other installations; many of these windows are several decades old and leaky. “You don’t really think about it most of the time, because no one expects their porch to be as warm and comfortable as the house,” Eve said. “But why shouldn’t the porch be warm and comfortable? Once I’m in the house, I don’t want to have to worry about chilly breezes and blowing snow.”

The best porch windows for the South Shore are high quality vinyl replacement windows. “They’re very solid windows,” Eve said. “You don’t have to worry about leaks along the sill letting cold air and moisture in. And they look really nice.” Vinyl porch windows are available in a variety of styles and colors. You can match your home’s existing decor and boost curb appeal by having new porch windows installed.”

Another reason people are choosing vinyl porch windows is the fact they require practically no maintenance. “Our old porch windows are wood, and every couple of years, I spent a weekend scraping them down and repainting them,” Eve explained. “I don’t actually mind the job but honestly, there are better ways for me to spend my time.  With the vinyl porch windows, you spray them with the hose when they get a little dingy and that’s it.”

“We have vinyl windows in the rest of the house, so having them installed on the porch makes sense,” Eve said. “Now everything will match – and I’m done worrying about the snow in the house!”
