1. Sunrooms And Screen Rooms - Advantages And
Disadvantages Of Each
Sunrooms were at first matured from farmhouse porches and have become increasingly accepted in
recent years. Today technological developments have made sunrooms and screened porches even
more popular. With latest developments in flexible outdoor fabrics, heated flooring, and
electronically controlled blinds, sunrooms are gradually becoming more and more comfortable every
Sunrooms and screen rooms are a fantastic way to expand your living area and enjoy the outdoors
while guarded from the weather. They allow you to easily enjoy your home no matter the weather or
temperature. And while these two types of enclosed outdoor areas offer flexible degrees of shelter
from the outdoors, they both provide superior protection from annoying insects.
In case you're contemplating installing a brand new
sunroom or converting a porch to a screened room,
it's important to think through the differences.
Sunrooms and screened porches are very much
alike, but they do offer divergent benefits and
Possibly the best benefit of a sunroom is that it's
usually warmer than a screened porch. Sunrooms offer total protection from rain, wind, and chilly
temperatures, and their window glass in fact intensifies the sun's light to heat the room further.
With new heated floors, a sunroom is great for year round use! However, keep in mind that the
summer's heat can be intensified by your sunroom; for summer enjoyment, make sure the windows
open or remove so you can let out extra heat. Sunrooms are usually more expensive than screened
porches, though, so not all considers their benefits worth the cost.
The primary benefit of a screen room is that you feel closer to nature with only screens between you
and nature. However, this factor can also be a drawback, because you're also more laid open to the
elements. A screened porch provides a great deal of defense from the weather, but it doesn't keep
out cold temperatures. And if it's really nasty outside-think raining horizontally-the screens don't
offer much barrier. For this reason, screened porches are generally recommended for three season
use or are great for home in Central Florida. However, screen rooms are by and large less expensive
to install than sunrooms, so some people consider them a better choice than sunrooms.
Once you've decided if you want a screened porch or a sunroom, the next decision is prefab or
custom. Most sunroom installation contractors offer both types, so you may want to talk to a
professional before you make your selection. Prefab sunrooms or screen rooms are usually more
than custom-built ones, but you will want to consider your options.
2. No matter if you're thinking of adding a sunroom or screened porch to your home as an investment
or just to enjoy the great outdoors, you're sure to love your new outdoor room. With all the extra
living space and the beauty of nature, you will be amazed how you lived without your fabulous
