Patio room additions are excellent options for homeowners who want to add livable space and value to their homes, as well as bring a little nature into their lives. The two main kinds of patio rooms are sunrooms and screen rooms. Both add space to your home that is great for entertaining and serves as a safe place for the kids to play when it’s raining or dark. These home upgrades are enjoyable in similar ways, but they both have advantages and disadvantages.
Sunrooms are patio rooms with large or floor-to-ceiling glass panes that let in plenty of sunlight. They can have solid roofs, which provide some shade during the hot midday hours, or they can have skylights or glass roofs that let in maximum sunlight. The main disadvantage of sunrooms is that they are expensive patio rooms, but luckily, their advantages can far outweigh their cost:
- They can be enjoyed in heavy rain, snow, and wind
- They protect from insects and other pests, like squirrels
- They provide a quieter space than a screen room or open patio does
- They can have heating and cooling systems
Screen rooms offer a little more unity with nature, but they don’t let in as much sunlight as sunrooms. As their name suggests, screen rooms are patio rooms with walls constructed with fine mesh panels that allow in fresh air but keep out the unwanted aspects of nature. These rooms are the more affordable of the patio room additions, and they have several other benefits that make them well worth having, including:
- They keep out pests and insects
- They’re well ventilated
- They can be enjoyed in light rain and wind
