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.

    Professional service from respectful contractors. They left the job site clean and met the project deadlines as promised. They also responded to questions in a reasonable time frame. I would recommend them to anyone looking for quality work from a reputable company.

    Gavin Subers was excellent at reviewing our needs and recommended a Craftbuilt-Aristocrat retractable awning for our residence. We had the work completed in April and couldn't be happier. Joe Paris and his assistant (also named Joe) did a great job on the installation. I highly recommend S & S Remodeling!

    Would recommend S & S highly. Being a senior citizen and not knowing what is what. I needed a new roof and Zach worked with me and his crew did a phenomenal job. Thank you so much again Zach. Will be calling in the future to get more work done. God Bless, Frank and Ann Marie Dunlap Siermine.
