Whether you want a cozy retreat for relaxing or an open space for entertaining guests, we have the expertise to create a sunroom that meets your unique needs.
What is a Sunroom?
A sunroom, also frequently called a solarium and sometimes a "Florida room," "garden conservatory," "garden room," "patio room," "sun parlor," "sun porch," "three-season room," or "winter garden," is a room that permits abundant daylight and views of the landscape while sheltering from adverse weather. Sunroom and solarium have the same denotation: solarium is Latin for "place of sunlight". Solaria of various forms have been erected throughout European history. The sunroom or solarium is currently popular in Europe, Canada, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Sunrooms may feature passive solar building designs to heat and illuminate them.
Our sunrooms are made of high-quality materials that are designed to last for years, even in harsh weather conditions. We use durable aluminum frames that are lightweight, strong, and resistant to rust and corrosion. Our sunroom windows are energy-efficient and designed to provide optimal insulation, keeping your sunroom comfortable and cozy year-round.
Types of Sunrooms Superior Offers
Screen rooms are popular for those who want to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about bugs and other pests. These sunrooms are typically made with sturdy aluminum frame beams and high-quality mesh screens, providing a comfortable and safe outdoor experience. Screen rooms are ideal for those who live in areas with mild weather conditions. Crafted to balance indoor comfort and outdoor immersion, these rooms often have large Florida windows or screened panels providing excellent views and the breeze.
Three Season Sunrooms
Three-season sunrooms are designed for spring, summer, and fall. They are typically made with insulated walls and roofs, providing added comfort and protection from the elements. Three-season sunrooms are ideal for those who want to extend their outdoor living space while protecting them from cooler temperatures and occasional rain showers. Unlike their four-season counterparts, they aren't built with the insulation necessary to handle the colder temperatures of winter. This makes them more cost-effective and quicker to construct. Whether used as a relaxation nook, a dining space, or even a reading corner, Three Season Sunrooms extend living spaces, allowing homeowners to revel in nature's beauty without the inconvenience of pests or unpredictable weather.
Four Season Sunrooms
Four-season sunrooms, or all-season sunrooms, are designed to be used year-round. They are also known as all-season rooms. These spaces are equipped with insulated walls, floors, roofs, and energy-efficient windows, ensuring a comfortable environment even during the coldest winters or hottest summers. These sunrooms are ideal for those who want to add extra living space to their home that can be used throughout the year. Unlike the Three Season Sunrooms, which might not provide adequate insulation for the colder months, Four Season Sunrooms are built to seamlessly integrate with a home's HVAC system, allowing for temperature regulation like any other room in your house. This makes them a perfect patio addition for homeowners looking to expand their living space with an area that offers panoramic views of the outdoors. Whether watching a rainstorm gently fall in the winter or enjoying the greenery of summer, Four Season Sunrooms provide a serene, nature-connected retreat without compromising on comfort.
A solarium is a unique architectural structure designed to maximize the amount of sunlight entering the room, offering a full, unobstructed view of the sky and surroundings. Characterized by its all-glass walls and ceiling, solariums are often referred to as "sunrooms," but their defining feature is the glass roof, which distinguishes them from other types of sunrooms. This design allows occupants to bask in daylight or stargaze at night, creating an immersive connection with nature. Often constructed using aluminum or other durable frameworks to support the extensive glazing, solariums come equipped with specially treated glass. This treatment ensures UV protection, reduces heat buildup, and offers energy efficiency. They can be an oasis for plant lovers, offering an environment where sunlight is abundant. Whether you're enjoying a morning coffee under a sunrise, taking a mid-day siesta in a sunlit space, or observing stars at night, a solarium provides a uniquely illuminating experience, merging the comforts of the indoors with the beauty of the outdoors. They are typically used for relaxation, meditation, or to grow plants and flowers. Solariums can be built to be used year-round or as a three-season room.
