When Is The Right Time To Renovate Your Sunroom?


If you’ve owned a sunroom for a while, you already know how these bright, airy spaces add countless benefits to your home. But how do you know when it’s the right time to renovate it? Learn more about a sunroom’s average lifespan and a few clear signs it’s time to give it a makeover.

How Long Do Sunrooms Last For?

A premium sunroom could last anywhere between 10 to 25 years, sometimes even longer. How long it lasts ultimately comes down to the materials you use, the local climate, exposure to the elements, and how well it’s maintained over time. Keeping up with repairing any damages and cleaning it regularly can keep it looking stunning for years to come!

4 Signs It’s Time To Give Your Sunroom A Makeover

If you’re still on the fence about renovating your sunroom, here are a few obvious signs it’s time to revamp your space:

It Looks Outdated

While some classic designs can stand the test of time, most trends fade after a few years. After a while, an outdated sunroom could become less pleasant to spend time in compared to newer, more vibrant styles. Something as simple as a new paint job, new flooring, or contemporary furniture can give your space the makeover it needs.

It Has Major Structural Issues

Like any other part of your home, sunrooms will develop structural problems over time. Keep an eye out for issues like water damage, cracked windows, or compromised framework before they become a safety hazard. If these problems persist even after repairing your space, it may be a sign to consider a complete remodel instead.

You Want To Repurpose It

Even if your sunroom is in great shape, you may to transform your sunroom into something completely different. Maybe you’d like to build a greenhouse for your plants, a new home office, or a living area for when you have family over. No matter your vision, you can create a customized sunroom and tailor it to your preference.

Extreme Changes In Temperature And Light

A well-built sunroom should be a comfortable space to enjoy sunlight and relax after a long day. That said, consistent temperature and light exposure are two essential sunroom features.  But if you're experiencing fluctuations, it may be time for an upgrade. Updating your sunroom's insulation, windows, and ventilation will help maintain the perfect temperature and natural light levels year-round.
