Akron 3-season rooms and Akron sunrooms offer a superior outdoor lifestyle with interior comforts. While they can often appear very similar, the difference between the two is significant. A 3-season room delivers the benefits of a screened porch but the added versatility of fully closeable windows to block out cold breezes, pollen, rain and debris. Our favorite 3-season porch window system is Eze-Breeze as they offer crystal clear vinyl and flexible venting options. Sunrooms are a bit more complex. They offer all the comforts of an interior room with insulation, HVAC and interior finishes. Usually featuring large windows to let in a lot of natural light and beautiful views of your property.
The main benefit of choosing an Akron 3-season room is that you can get that classic screened porch feeling with the option to close out cold wind, allergens and rain. With our porch window systems, you can easily customize the air flow for whatever the Northeast Ohio weather forecast brings your way. You can also add an outdoor fireplace or space heater to use your 3-season room comfortably well into the winter months, too!
Sunrooms, sun porches, Florida rooms, solariums, 4-season rooms; sunrooms are referred to by many different names. A sunroom is a great choice for gaining additional square footage in your home at a lower cost than a full addition. Sunrooms can be built over existing decks or patios or in their own new space. Sunrooms are usually known for their many glass windows that allow for sunshine to fill the space, creating an outdoor feel with all the comforts of interior living. With insulated floors, ceilings and walls, HVAC and custom interior finishes, sunrooms are the outdoor space that can be enjoyed year round.
Sunrooms can be built in a variety of locations at your home. While the back of your home, off the main living area or kitchen, is the most popular location, maybe you could use a private retreat off the master bedroom or a playroom for the kids, the choice is yours. The size of your new space can vary greatly. Depending on where you choose to place your new sunroom, it may be able to span the entire back of your home or be a cozy retreat for two. Every home and every family’s lifestyle is different. At Archadeck of Akron, our design experts will help you choose the size and location that best meets your family’s needs.
The variety of materials and finishes available to build for your new Akron sunroom are as plentiful as the interior design options. Starting with the location, roof style & windows is just the tip of the iceberg. When choosing interior finishes it is important to consider how you plan to use the space. If the kids and pets will be coming in and out of the sunroom from the backyard you may want to consider a hard surface floor such as wood, tile or laminate for easy cleaning. But if your sunroom is only going to be accessed from inside the home, carpet may provide more comfort. With so many design options, it is important to work with an expert design and build firm like Archadeck of Akron. We’ll help you choose the basic design as well as keep you informed of the latest options for accessories like an outdoor fireplace or skylights, things you may not have considered.
