Sunrooms and Porches
Sunrooms and porches are great options for entertaining guests, lounging, or simply enjoying the outdoors. Plus, you won’t be bothered by pesky insects and glaring heat. Therefore, having a clear understanding of the differences, advantages, and disadvantages of your options is essential when choosing which is best for your family.
Difference Between a Sunroom Attachment and a Porch Enclosure
Many homeowners add an addition or an enclosure to their home in order to have more space. Before choosing between the two rooms, you will need to seriously think about several things. First and foremost, what will you do with it? When will you use it? Lastly, what is your budget?
You can enjoy a four-season room all year round with your family and guests. Because they often have insulation, you can use them even in winter. Similarly, a solarium is a four-season sunroom with a glass roof. Additionally, a sunroom may have additional windows or doors so you can access the yard or patio, or it may be fully enclosed so you can only access the room from inside the house.
By contrast, sunrooms built traditionally do not have insulation. You will need to attach a heating device externally, such as a portable heater or electric fireplace, if you wish to warm the enclosure.
