The joys of a sunroom are hard to ignore when it provides a perfect place to enjoy outside while having the comforts of indoors. Many people will add or convert their screen porch enclosure into a sunroom, and the benefits will keep you there often. The options to convert your Hillborough Country sunroom include pros and cons, and it’s important to note what will work best for you. American Home Center offers the best selection for your sunroom and what will fill your needs.

Screen Porch Enclosure Additions

Building an addition and referring it to your sunroom, but only if it has many windows and is the sunniest spot in the house. But for our purposes sake, the windows should be tempered, insulated, and UV protected glass. WAlls should also be insulated for practical purposes to be an additional living space.

The pros:

  • More living space
  • More space for entertaining
  • Attractive addition for more value to the home

The cons:

  • Expensive option
  • Necessary permits
  • Officially indoors
  • No sounds of nature and no breeze to enjoy
  • No outdoor parties

Season Room

A less expensive approach is to replace the screened areas on the porch with a single pane glass or screen system, then you can convert into a  3-season room!

The pros:

  • Additional space in your home
  • Open for breezes on nice day
  • Easy access from indoors to outdoors
  • More protection from outdoor elements
  • Traps heat for cool days

The cons:

  • Building permits
  • Limited climate control
  • When windows are open, you are not outside, feels like another room in the house
  • Traps heat
  • Not insulated
  • Adds very little value to home

The next option includes a porch with roll up curtains, as your main interest is to spend time outdoors and protect your outdoor furniture. Keep things protected with roll-up curtains!

The pros:

  • Less expensive
  • Less permanent
  • Easy to install
  • Use your porch instead of converting it
  • Protect your belongings
  • Low-maintenance
  • Outdoor living space

The cons:

  • Go outdoors and close curtains, or have curtains installed and expose your screen and framework to elements
  • No value to home

It is a no brainer: if you want more living space or enjoy the outdoor space longer, you have options. You can convert your screened porch into a sunroom, 3 season room, or create a lavish porch. The easiest option would be to convert your porch and replace the screens with sliding glass door panels.
