Are you looking to add curb appeal to your home? Enhancing an open outdoor space with a patio enclosure is an easy way to do so. In this post, we will discuss the features and benefits of a Patio Enclosures® sunroom addition, as well as how it can increase the value of your home.

There are multiple types of porch enclosures to choose from, including screen rooms, three season rooms, four season rooms and solariums. After assessing your existing porch structure, the experts at Patio Enclosures will make recommendations for designing an enclosure ideal for you, your home and your budget.

Benefits of a Screened-in Porch

Screen Room

Outdoor spaces are great, but what about those pesky bugs? A screened-in porch maintains the authentic feel of a porch without letting bugs ruin your day. Screened-in porches can be added to any outdoor space or used to enclose an existing porch or patio. Are you tired of constantly sweeping the leaves, grass and bugs from your outdoor space? Screening in your porch can help keep yard debris from littering your floor and entering your home.

Concerned with cost? Are you still deciding which type of sunroom is best for you? This decision can be difficult; especially if you aren’t sure how much to invest in the project. Screen rooms are the most affordable sunroom option offered, and the construction timeline for this type of sunroom is shorter than others. Down the road, if you decide you would like a glass enclosure that provides more protection or more use, no problem! A Patio Enclosures screen room can easily be converted to a three season room to extend its seasons of use.

Benefits of a Three Season Room

If you’re looking to get additional use out of your space, a three season room might be right for you. Depending on your climate, a three season room can be used for most of the year and is less expensive than a four season room, solarium or a traditional sunroom addition. Three season rooms not only provide protection from bugs, but from the elements as well. Patio Enclosures offers several different three season room options to best suit your needs.

Our AllView three season rooms have a 3 1/8-inch powder-coated aluminum frame, which provides the highest resistance to scratching and comes in three color options to coordinate with your existing home.We also offer AllView Elite three season rooms, which have superior weatherproofing with advanced weatherlock and weatherstripping, which are draft- and weather-resistant. AllView Elite rooms also come with a dual-point throw bolt locking system, which includes a night latch, adding security to your home. Both rooms can be constructed with single-pane or double-pane insulated glass depending on your needs.

Benefits of a Four Season Room or Solarium

If you’re looking for a space to entertain in year-round, a four season room or solarium may be the right choice for you. Four season rooms and solariums are both engineered to be heated and cooled, allowing them to be used year-round, no matter the season or weather.

Patio Enclosures four season vinyl sunrooms are virtually maintenance-free, and vinyl is less likely to dent and scratch. Our vinyl doors feature structurally stronger, factory-welded corners, providing you with a room that will last a lifetime. Our four season aluminum rooms utilize aluminum extrusions in the frame, which provide structural integrity and the highest resistance to chipping and fading, keeping your room looking like new.

If you want to enjoy maximum views of your surroundings every season, a solarium may be the perfect option for you. Patio Enclosures solariums have floor-to-ceiling glass walls and a glass roof, which allow you to surround yourself with natural beauty all day and night. To improve heating and cooling performance, each custom solarium is manufactured with 1-inch-thick, double-pane insulated glass.

Adding a Patio Enclosure to Your Home: It’s Worth the Value

Whether you choose a screen room, three season room, four season room or solarium, each can add value and extra living space to your home. Can you imagine planning an outdoor get-together without having to worry about the rain, wind or bugs ruining your gathering? Adding a porch enclosure allows you to extend the seasons and enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about unpredictable weather elements. If you choose an enclosed porch or solarium, you’ll have the perfect, protected place for pets or kids to play without worry.
