Why are sunrooms such a popular home addition?

Homeowners who decide to invest in a sunroom say it’s their favorite room in the house.

 

Why? What is a Sunroom?

A sunroom is a glass and screen outdoor living room installed on a wood or concrete foundation. It is also referred to as a patio room, solarium, patio enclosure or Florida room. Walls of glass bring in sunlight and protect you from wind, bugs, rain, and chill. Composed primarily of single or double pane glass, sunrooms should be designed to fit the look and feel of your home. Sunroom additions are a popular means of home improvement. They are an affordable way of adding leisure living space without the hassle and cost of conventional construction.
