Trends have changed with the times when it comes to sunrooms. Gone are the days of a simple screened-in porch off the back of the house that lets in wind and rain and can only be used two seasons out of the year. Now there are several options of sunrooms, as they have evolved into bona fide living spaces that can be customized to fit your desires and needs. Two popular alternatives with homeowners are to install a prefabricated sunroom or a custom-built sunroom.
A prefab sunroom is an economical choice if you want the extra space without spending a lot of money. The downsides to this type of sunroom are that it is only available in limited colors, and the design may not match that of your home.
Custom sunrooms come in a variety of styles and quality. The layout, architecture, color, and materials of a custom enclosure are meant to blend with your home’s exterior as well as its interior. Best of all, a sunroom that meets your specifications will add value to your home.
Certain upgrades that can be made to a custom sunroom to make it even more luxurious and relaxing include high-end wood or vinyl materials, high-efficiency windows, skylights, and even heating and cooling systems. Some sunrooms can even act as a greenhouse or have a fireplace. A sunroom is a true extension of the home that may be enjoyed year-round, just like any other area in the house.
Which type of sunroom is right for you? The biggest difference between a prefab and custom sunroom is cost. If you’re looking to thoroughly benefit from a sunroom’s features while increasing the value of your home at the same time, erecting a custom sunroom is a natural choice.
