Sunroom vs. Screen Rooms: Which is Right for You?

When you want to add more living space to your home, you may be wondering if a sunroom or screen room is right for you. At S&S Remodeling, we install Oasis sunrooms and screen rooms from Joyce Mfg. Co., which are the best in the PA market!

Here are some things to consider that may help you make your decision:

1. What is your budget?

Screen rooms are typically less expensive than sun rooms. If you’re working with a limited budget, a screen room may be the better option. The coolest thing about screen rooms is that they can be created using your existing patio or deck structure!

2. What is the climate like where you live?

If you live in an area with a lot of snow and cold weather, a windowed sunroom may be a better choice. Screen rooms are not heated or cooled, so they may not be as comfortable in extreme weather conditions. 

3. What do you want to use the space for?

If you’re looking for a space to entertain guests or relax, a sunroom may be a good option. Sunrooms are typically more comfortable, given you can control the temperature and fend off the elements a bit easier, and they let in a lot of natural light. Screen rooms can also be used for entertaining, but they may be more suitable for entertaining only during the warmer months. 

4. What is the style of your home?

If you have a traditional home, a sunroom room may be a better choice! They have more personalization options and can be more easily blended into the existing style of your home. A screen room naturally has more of a modern look but is much quicker and cheaper to install.

5. What is the condition of your home’s exterior?

If your home’s exterior is in need of repair or replacement, a sunroom may be a better option. If you’re building a screen room onto your existing porch or deck structure, you’ll want to ensure it’s in a safe condition and up-to-code first. A sunroom more commonly provides an opportunity for rebuilding and the addition of a new structure altogether.

If you’re still not sure which is right for you, call S&S Remodeling Contractors for a free Brookhaven sunroom consultation at 610-876-0440. We can help you assess your needs and find the perfect solution for your home.

    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. The work was done quickly, at a good price, and I'm happy with our results. I'll definitely be calling these guys for my next project, as they have earned my trust, and my … read more appreciation.

    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.
