Home » Blog » Custom Sunroom vs Vinyl Sunroom: Who Wins?

A sunroom is a perfect addition to any home that desires extra living space and an area to enjoy the outdoor views without being affected by weather conditions. When it comes to choosing between a custom sunroom and a vinyl sunroom, homeowners are often confused about which one is better. In this blog, we will explore the advantages and disadvantages of both to help you make an informed decision.

Custom Sunroom

Custom sunrooms are designed to match the homeowner’s specific needs and preferences. As the name suggests, custom sunrooms are built from scratch, providing a unique and tailored sunroom to meet the homeowner’s requirements.


  • Personalized design and style to match the existing architecture of your home
  • Endless options for material, style, size, and shape
  • Greater flexibility in choosing the features and accessories you want, including HVAC systems, flooring, and lighting
  • Increase in home value


  • Higher cost than prefabricated sunrooms
  • Longer installation time due to custom design and construction
  • May require local permits and approvals, adding to the installation timeline

Vinyl Sunroom

Vinyl sunrooms are prefabricated sunrooms that come in a kit form. These kits are designed and manufactured in a factory and then shipped to your location, where they are installed by professionals.


  • Lower cost than custom sunrooms
  • Shorter installation time compared to custom sunrooms
  • Durable and low maintenance material
  • Energy efficient and excellent insulation properties
  • Can be easily removed and relocated if needed


  • Limited design options
  • Standard sizes and shapes that may not perfectly fit your home’s architecture
  • Limited accessory options

Which One is Best for You?

Ultimately, the decision to go with a custom sunroom or a vinyl sunroom depends on your preferences, needs, and budget. If you’re looking for a unique and personalized space that perfectly matches your home’s existing architecture, a custom sunroom is the way to go. However, if you’re on a tight budget and want a quick and easy installation, a vinyl sunroom might be the best option for you.

    I replaced 2 exterior doors in the past with nightmare results. I called S&S Remodeling to replace the main front door based on the Google reviews with the hope that a family business would have better results than a large chain. My wife and I are ecstatic with the results from S&S. Julian, Nancy, Chris and Gavin … read more all made the process seamless. The quality of the door and the workmanship exceeded my expectations. Will be using S&S for future projects.

    I called this company in order to have my roof replaced on a Wednesday (the week of a major holiday), and the work was started that Friday.

    Julian was very helpful and Chris did an outstanding job installing my front door and repairing my siding. They were both responsive, punctual, and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer S&S Remodeling to family and friends. Thank you to the team for a job well done!

    S&S replaced a door in our daughter’s room that leads to a patio. They were extremely efficient, on time, and their communication was and is still excellent. I also felt that there were extra considerations taken during the initial consultation given this was for our baby’s room, which I really appreciated.
