Begin your plan for a sun room or screenroom by setting goals, considering designs,
understanding the construction process, knowing the benefits, speaking with a manufacturer,
and considering the porch or patio enclosure options.
Patio Enclosure Location & Preparation: What is the best location for a screenroom or sunroom? How
much modification will my house need? Will I be mounting a porch enclosure on an
existing deck or patio or will I be building a new one? Do I need a foundation?
How will the enclosure fit and attach to my house?
Assembly & Ordering: Are there many screenroom/sunroom
designs to choose from? Who will be measuring and ordering the patio or porch enclosure?
Should I consider a do it yourself sunroom or screenroom? Can I count on my family
and friends to help? Should I hire a manufacturer or contractor to help with the
steps I find difficult? Do I want to pay a retailer for the entire project? Should
I consider custom sunrooms? Should I design a sunroom of my own?
Cost & Expectations: What is my budget
for the entire patio or porch enclosure project? What are my expectations based
on my budget? How will I pay for the project? Do I have or need financing options?
How will a SunPorch addition affect my home's value?
