You know you want a home renovation that is effective both financially and in terms of the overall style. How do you strike this balance? A sunroom addition may be exactly what you’re looking for. Understand everything that you have to gain from this unique residential upgrade.

Conventional Construction Comparison

When compared with standard residential construction projects, sunrooms make for a more affordable option. One reason for this is that sunrooms have an affordable base price, one that increases depending on the number and type of options chosen. Sunrooms are also more affordable from a purely engineering standpoint. On a related note, the city permits required for a sunroom are more affordable.

Ease of Installation 

A sunroom addition is quick and easy to install, which means that you and your family can enjoy them much faster than you would a standard construction. Specifically, there are no minimal labor or material charges to factor in. Another factor impacting overall installation efficiency is that you do not have to dig up or pour concrete. That also means that any landscaping you have on your property remains safe and whole during sunroom construction.

Energy Efficiency 

You likely care about how energy-efficient your addition is. If so, you’ll be pleased to know that sunrooms can help you save on your overall cooling and heating costs throughout the year. Specifically, it’s the glass glazing that makes sunrooms energy efficient, providing them with proper insulation no matter the season.


In addition to the base price of a sunroom addition, you’ll do well to consider the ongoing costs, such as maintenance. Maintaining your new sunroom and better ensuring that it lasts for as long as possible won’t cost you a lot of money. That said, it is up to you to ensure that you schedule regular maintenance, much like you would on your car.
