Each style can be evaluated by cost, complexity and exposure to the elements. When planning your project, start with one of the basic designs. Choose what you will use the addition for, how many days a year it will be used, and the degree of comfort desired.
Open Porch - The open porch is basically a deck or slab covered by a roof structure supported by posts and/or rails. It will keep off the sun and rain, and can be used approximately 180 days a year.
Screen Porch - Screen porches, unlike open porches, come with an additional protection of large, screened panels that allow fresh air to circulate while keeping out bugs and mosquitoes. A screen porch is a fairly inexpensive way to expand living space and to enjoy the outdoors. Insect screening not only makes a porch more usable but it also provides a sense of enclosure. With insects out of the way, a screen porch transforms into a pleasant alfresco dining area and serves as a wonderful sleeping environment on a daybed or a southern favorite, porch swing. Georgia Sunroom can bring back the days of southern comfort with a wonderful screen porch. A screen porch has 180 useable days per year.
Three Season Sunroom - The three season sunroom is designed to extend a home’s usable living area with minimum expense. With walls of single pane windows, full screens, and single pane doors, the three season sunroom can be used during inclement weather, and chilly spring and fall days. In the south a three season sunroom can be used up to 320 days a year, only not on harsh winter days that fall below the freezing. An inexpensive, portable space heater can lengthened the use of your three season sunroom. With double-hung full screen windows, a three season sunroom has plenty of ventilation similar to a screened porch enclosure. The big advantage over a screen porch is double the usage days, and no indoor pollen cleanup. Three season sunrooms are often decorated with nice furniture, and are an ideal plant room for the avid gardener in winter. A very affordable for sunroom addition, three season sunrooms are usually only 15% more expensive than a screen porch.
Four Season Sunroom - A true four season sunroom is characterized by a fully insulated walls, floor, and ceiling, and a generous use of insulated, energy star rated windows and doors. Our four season sunrooms come with a thermostatically controlled heating and cooling system. A sunroom composed almost entirely of glass, is still designed for warmth and comfort even on the hottest and coldest of days. A true sunroom invites as much natural daylight as possible into a home with a minimum of structural elements, such as walls or posts. A four season sunroom is any room you want it to be: a family room, play room, office, den, exercise room, or kitchen extension, with the outdoors invited in. Georgia Sunroom four-season room is like no other in design, function, quality, style, value, and elegance to match your home. Our four season room is a real home addition that is a true sunroom. Prefabricated sunrooms from factories are not home additions; they will not look like your home and most of the time, will not pass restrictive covenants for neighborhoods. Our four-season Georgia Sunroom is the finest sunroom on the market. Georgia sunroom is truly the “South’s best name in sunrooms”.
