Sunroom additions have changed over the years. Gone are the times sunrooms meant a simple addition used only during perfect weather. Jalousie windows that let the warm air out and cold air in have been replaced with energy-efficient panes, which is wonderful news for Boston homeowners. Patio Enclosures offers a variety of styles and options that will match the architectural design of your home whether it be Victorian, Greek Revival or any other style. Our sunrooms and solariums allow you a variety of home remodeling and addition choices.
Types of Sunroom Additions
The key to choosing your sunroom space: Determine how you want to use the new room.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Will it be an extension of my living space?
- Do I plan to host guests in the room overnight?
- Will I use the room only in the warmer weather months and close it up during winter?
- Do I want to heat and cool the space?
Then take a look at the five options listed below and match your answers to the options for each.
- A screened-in porch works well for homeowners who only plan to utilize the space in good weather and for only part of the year. In Boston, this would likely range from mid-spring to early fall. Screened rooms cannot be heated or cooled, but our screens offer maximum visibility and weather stripping to keep out bugs and debris. Check out our photo gallery for past projects and custom screen rooms.
- A three season room is built to enjoy from spring to fall, but these spaces aren’t constructed for heating and cooling units. They do, however, offer weatherlock, which protects against Boston’s unseasonable weather, and polypropylene with fin seal weather stripping, offering superior draft and weather resistance. Double-paned insulated glass can help keep the cooler Boston temperatures outside when the weather starts to turn, and glass tint provides shade and UV protection while reducing solar heat gain. Since these rooms are enclosed they do offer protection from the elements, like wind, rain and snow. View various three season room options.
- Want to use the room year-round? All season rooms function as an actual home addition, allowing for heating and cooling systems to be installed. Vinyl sunrooms complement homes with vinyl siding and are reinforced with corrosion-resistant aluminum or steel. Aluminum sunrooms are extruded to resist fading and chipping in the harsh winter months.
- If your real purpose for the sunroom is to enjoy the outside views year-round, consider a solarium. Surround yourself with glass on all sides and watch the leaves change, the sun rise and the skies fill with stars 365 days – and nights – of the year. With a solarium you can add a heating and/or cooling system, and the thick, dual-sealed insulated glass keeps energy costs down. We offer a variety of options when it comes to design and can therefore match the architectural style of your home.
- Traditionally-framed sunrooms use common construction materials, like drywall and insulation, and can be used throughout the year as a guest bedroom or additional living space. Patio Enclosures offers a variety of patio door and window styles. Add a bay window to match your Victorian hideaway, or choose a double-hung window with a wood frame for your bungalow.
