Turning your Deck into a Sunroom for All-Year-Round Enjoyment



Benefits to Having a Sunroom

Decks are a wonderful home feature to have, but they can only be enjoyed during certain weather and parts of the year. Sunrooms, however, can be used all year long! Sunrooms provide the same feeling and thrill of the outdoors, just like decks, but with the protection from excessive heat, dangerous weather conditions, and even bugs and insects.

There are also additional benefits to turning your deck into a sunroom. For example, sunrooms increase the square footage to significantly raise the value of your home. Without paying the fee to add a new sunroom to your house, you can just pay for the upgrade and reap the benefits of a much higher home value. Additionally, you can customize it to match the style of your house. Converting your deck into a sunroom is a wonderful idea, but it is certainly a large task. Fortunately, Four Seasons Sunrooms and Windows can help you perform the transformation to create you dream sunroom!

Deciding Whether or Not to Replace the Deck


A lot of preparation is necessary when transforming a deck into a sunroom, but the first decision to make is whether you want to remove your deck or just build onto it. This is a big decision to make, so don’t be afraid to ask a professional home remodeler to check your deck’s structural foundation and give you their opinion.

Designing Your Sunroom


If you have decided to modify your deck rather than replace it, you can begin designing the new sunroom. Professional constructors will suggest designing ideas to seamlessly merge the sunroom into your home while adding roofs, doors, and windows. They will also take care of scheduling inspections and acquiring permits.

Furnishing the Sunroom


Now comes the fun part! While the construction of the sunroom may have been very technical and uninvolved, this is your chance to truly personalize it so that it suits your taste and desires. Decide what kind of activities you want to do in that room, and customize it accordingly. If you want it to be a library, add a bookshelf. If you want it to be an office, add a desk. If you would like it to be a relaxation room, add some couches and pillows. Explore your interests and make your sunroom unique to you!
