How A Sunroom Stacks Up as Compared to A Traditional Home Addition

If you are considering a home addition, you might want to read a few side-by-side comparisons between a new room of glass and traditional home construction.


The name “sunroom” itself conjures up an airy, light-filled retreat where families can snuggle into a cozy chair and read, sew, have tea or a cocktail. Your new room can be the setting for all of these activities, but it would also bring several other benefits to the table over traditional construction.

1. When you add a Four Seasons Sunroom to your home, you will not need an architect since your custom design ideas are most often included in the project cost of your sunroom.
2. Since a sunroom construction is almost entirely made up of vinyl and glass, the upkeep of the exterior will be minimal.
3. Our sunroom additions often come with a warranty, unlike augmentations built by independent contractors. 
4. Adding a sunroom, in many parts of the country, requires a less expensive permit cost than would a traditional extension.
5. Aesthetically, our sunrooms exceed expectations because of a myriad of customizable options and our European stylings.
6. Because you will be hiring one company and their crew, being distracted by several contractors working in or around your home will not occur.
7. Established sunroom companies include a financing options that are often not available with traditional contractors and architects.

8. Our product is well-established and trusted based on long-term, proven performance over more than 40 years.
