Basically, “sunroom” is a term that is really all-encompassing and refers to:
A. A solarium, B. A screen room, C. A three seasons room, D. A four seasons room
1. Basically, it’s a room with access to the great outdoors as well as plenty of natural light.
2. If you’re looking for a sunroom that’s suitable for use from spring through fall, a three seasons room could be the perfect choice for you. However, it’s important to note that they’re not insulated against the cold winter weather and aren’t really designed for being heated or cooled. But, they can provide a great deal of family enjoyment for the rest of the year depending on the climate. Three seasons rooms are popular in Glen Ellyn but homeowners often prefer an insulated four seasons room that they can use year-round.
Traditional room additions are built on-site. First, a foundation is poured. Followed by the framing of the walls and roof. After the walls and roof are covered, the doors and windows can be hung. Usually, the exterior is then finished, using shingles and siding and the interior will be completed with drywall, insulation, electrical, and paint. With the majority of room additions, an HVAC system will then be connected to the existing system or a separate system will be installed. Even with no HVAC system during the cold winter months in Glen Ellyn, even a temporary heat source, such as a space heater or electric fireplace could make your room addition wonderfully warm and toasty. An all seasons room addition can be enjoyed every single day of the year because it’s engineered for all of the seasons with room cooling and heating units in a fully-functioning room that’s just like any other room in the home.
Can you imagine how great it would be to watch a peaceful snowfall during the holiday season while spending time in the warm indoors with your loved ones? A room addition can provide plenty of added space for you and your family to get together while maximizing the panoramic views. You can be enjoying the sun on sweltering summer days while staying cool in the comfort of your very own sunroom. You’ll never have to feel the sun’s heat or deal with all of those pesky bugs.
