Whether you know it as the City of Brotherly Love or the Cradle of Liberty, Philadelphia has long been a pioneer in shaping America's history, ideals and architecture. With famous residents like founding father Benjamin Franklin and baseball Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, America has embraced the innovation and history of this beloved city.
And although Philadelphia is known for its cold winters and hot summers, this iconic Eastern Pennsylvania city boasts over 6 million residents. Many Philadelphians have found an inexpensive and unique way to enjoy the warm seasons and warm up during the cold ones. Some homeowners in Philadelphia have found the right remedy for the problem of a shorter warm season with four season rooms from their local Patio Enclosures design center.
When faced with challenges like decreased home resale values and lack of space, many Philadelphians have turned to home additions to improve value and add extra living space. Keep reading for examples of how homeowners use four season rooms to maximize their home's square footage, improve their homes overall, and extend the seasons.
All Season Oasis in North Philly
When homeowners in the Manayunk area of Northern Philadelphia decided to make the most of their hot Philly summers, they decided to add a vinyl four season room. In the process, they also increased their home's living space in the winter.
Custom-designed to replace a second-story deck, this home improvement project proved to be a cost-effective way to add space to their home, open up a compact dining room area and create a year-round oasis to enjoy their surroundings regardless of the weather. The glass four season enclosure features a cathedral gabled roof with floor-to-ceiling glass to let natural light stream in. The open views to their backyard provide a one-of-a-kind showcase for beautiful landscaping and a spectacular in-ground pool.
The problematic hot summer days were solved for this Manayunk family with their new backyard oasis. But their four season room also allowed them to enjoy winters in Philadelphia. By opening up their cramped dining room area into a four season room, they increased usable living space while being able to enjoy the outdoors all-year round in the warmth of their four season room. And of course, all of that resulted in an affordable way to add value and utility to their home.
Retirement Living On Another Level
Because of Philadelphia's proximity to populous cities such as New York, Baltimore and Atlantic City, living space in that area can come at a premium. That's why one couple in Philly decided to retire in the 55+ community of Heritage Point in South Jersey. Even though space was more plentiful there, they still found they needed a more open and inviting area to enjoy their retirement in the beautiful surroundings of their eastern seaboard home.
That's when they decided to call their local Patio Enclosures design center for an affordable home improvement project to add an all season sunroom to their existing home.
The spacious and custom-designed vinyl sunroom features a gabled roof patio enclosure overlooking gorgeous views of their surroundings. Tall glass windows and glass knee walls encompass the new all season room to provide unobstructed floor-to-ceiling views. Natural light now fills their all season room during the sunny summer months as well as cold winter days and the double-pane insulated glass helps maintain energy efficiency throughout the year. A simple set of stairs connect the glass-enclosed room to the patio below, where the family savors their barbecues and entertains during warm east coast months.
The Philadelphia-area couple enjoys their retirement surrounded by the lush nature they longed for, while staying warm in the winter and remaining bug and critter-free in the summer.
With help from their local Patio Enclosures team, these homeowners were able to transform their existing home into an inviting space to enjoy throughout every season. And the bonus of maximizing their space while increasing the value of their home in an affordable way was just an added advantage.
