How Much Does a Sunroom Cost?
So you've been dreaming of a new sunroom addition but you're
not sure if you can afford it? Luckily there are many
sunroom options to choose from resulting in a fairly wide price
range. Prices will depend on size, materials,
customizations, window types, roof types, insulation and more.
Before you start listing out all the things you'd like, you
should first check if you are even allowed to build in your
neighborhood. Check local building and zoning codes to
give you an idea of the size, design and sunroom type allowed in
your particular area. Depending on where you live, things
may be very restrictive or the sky may be the limit. The
last thing you want is to get your hopes up on a particular
sunroom design only to later find out you can't legally build it
even if you had all the money in the world (unless maybe you
bought your entire neighborhood but that's an entirely different
So assuming you've found out what building restrictions there
are in your area, let's discuss what you can expect to pay.
As mentioned previously, your cost will depend on the type of
sunroom you'd like. The least expensive screened
enclosures or covered patios which are not designed for year
round use and don't require added insulation or thermally
efficient windows. These rooms can range from as low as
$500 (if you are doing it yourself with a kit) to up to
The next step up in price occurs when you start talking about
three season and four season sunrooms which require more
expensive materials. These rooms can range from $15,000 to
$80,000+ again depending on many factors. If the room is
larger your costs will go up. If the room needs extra
foundation work, heating and air installation, energy efficient
windows, insulated roof panels, and custom features to match
your home, your price increase. To determine how much you
should spend on your sunroom, you should think about how you'd
like to use it. Do you want to be in it year round?
Do you only want a sunny place to hang out in the summers away
from the bugs? Will you be living in your home for a long
time to come? Will the home's value appreciate enough in
that time to justify the cost in building a sunroom? Keep
in mind that if you decide to build a four season room, you can
add the square footage to your existing home's square footage
which will no doubt add to the overall value of your home.
Remember also that you'll incur costs other than simply building
the sunroom including buying new furniture, carpets if needed,
artwork for the walls and any other items you'd like to add to
make the room your own.
