    Removing a uPVC porch

    Window Specialists

    In the front of our house we have an old uPVC porch. Its going to come down easily enough because it's just glazed panels. Im just wondering how it's actually attached to the house. I don’t mind ruining the porch but want to have minimal damage to the walls of my property. Thanks.

    "The porch should come down easily enough. The frames will probably only be fixed to the walls using screws and rawlplugs and the same with the roof. The worst will probably be cleaning the sealant off the walls if any was used initially."

    The upvc frames should just be anchor fixed to the wall. Remove the glass you should expose the fixings.
    Hope this helps"

    "Remove the plastic beads from the inside which hold the glass in place. Remove the glass carefully then you will be able to see what type of fixings have been used to attach the unit to the wall."

    "Hi, the porch, if Upvc, will be directly fixed to the wall.

    If you remove the the glass and lower panel closest to the wall you should see the fixings.

    Do this last though, remove all other sections prior.

    "Hello, the porch should just be anchored with concrete screws. if it is a bricked porch with uPVC onto of that then you will need to knock the wall down and unscrew the wall ties, Hope this helps"

    "The porch should be bolted to the wall with star screws once the glass panels are out."

    "Once the porch is de glazed you should be able to see bolts screwed into the house wall. It should just be a case of just taking the bolts out."

    "The porch should be attached to he house with fixings,these are easily removed after deglazing the panels, inc roof pals so all fixings can be removed,then the lead can be removed and any sealants."
