If you are ready to let the light shine in by adding a sunroom to your home, you’re probably hoping a quick online search will tell you how much the project will cost. Unfortunately, it's not that easy. Adding an addition to your home is not like buying an appliance that is self-contained. A sunroom addition needs to be attached to your existing home and there are a multitude of variables that can add considerable dollars to your project and need to be taken into account. According to Remodeling Magazine, a 200-square-foot sunroom addition with footings and slabs-on-grade foundation can cost up to $70,000, while a survey conducted on HomeAdvisor.com found the average cost of sunroom additions ran around $15,104.
Why the discrepancy? And how much can you expect to pay? A variety of factors determine the cost of a sunroom, which is why you can’t pin down an exact price online. Patio Enclosures starts each sunroom project with a free, no obligation, in-home estimate for homeowners ready to begin planning a sunroom, screen room or patio enclosure. During this consultation we:

What Determines the Cost of a Sunroom?
A variety of factors determine the cost of a sunroom addition. The biggest factors are the size and type of room. However, there are a number of other factors that can greatly impact cost including: local building code requirements for your specific area; location of the sunroom on the home; how the room ties into the rest of the home; type of roof; type of foundation; type of flooring; electrical requirements; heating and cooling requirements; and finishing touches or décor. Rooms can be very simple to very complex. It all depends on your wants and needs for the space.
For instance, Patio Enclosures offers five types of sunrooms:
Additionally, each room can be customized in various ways to suit your needs. Want glass tint? We can do that! Hope to use your sunroom in the winter months? We can make that happen, too.
