What’s the Difference Between a Patio Enclosure and a Sunroom?

Are you looking to add more living space to your home? If so, you may be wondering what the difference is between a patio enclosure and a sunroom.

At S&S Remodeling Contractors, we are experts in exterior remodeling and can help you choose the right option for your home.

Here is a look at the key differences between a patio enclosure and a sunroom:

Patio Enclosure

Patio Enclosures

Patio enclosures are typically made of glass or screen and are designed to enclose your existing patio. This can give you a bug-free space to enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about the weather.

Patio enclosures are usually less expensive than sunrooms and can be a great option if you are looking to add a small amount of extra living space to your home.


Sunrooms are typically larger than patio enclosures and are designed to be an addition to your home. Sunrooms can be made of glass or screen and are typically built on a foundation.

Sunrooms are a great option if you are looking to add a significant amount of extra living space to your home. They can also be used year-round, as they are typically better insulated than patio enclosures.

If you are ready to add a patio enclosure or sunroom to your home, call S&S Remodeling Contractors for a free consultation at 610-876-0440. We are a 5-star rated, fully insured remodeling contractor serving greater Brookhaven, PA.
