Print Friendly and PDF

Porches and sunrooms are a dramatic improvement to any Atlanta area home. The most obvious benefits of porches and sunrooms is the way they expand living space and elegantly open up a home to the outdoors, light, and fresh air. Regardless of a home's style or size, most houses in the Atlanta, Georgia area can be fitted with porches or sunrooms while significantly increasing real estate value.

Porches and sunrooms are so desirable that those Atlanta, Georgia homeowners who do not have them hope to add one or the other as soon as possible. Those who already have a porch or sunroom often seek an upgrade to the size, energy efficiency, décor, and technology of these structures. As a matter of fact, if you were to ask some of your neighbors who have added porches or sunrooms about the size of these additions, most homeowners would probably tell you that they wish they had built larger ones.

One of the most common questions we are asked is, "What is the difference between porches and sunrooms?" The answer to this question is simpler than you might think. "Porch" is a generic term for a wide variety of outdoor additions. Porches in the Atlanta, Georgia area can be as simple as an open concrete slab or as elaborate as a screened in porch with ceiling fans and a gable roof.

Sunrooms are a specific type of room addition. In most ways, sunrooms can be as functional as any other room addition such as a bedroom or den. What sets sunrooms apart is the way that they allow occupants to enjoy nature and sunlight without having to worry about rain, snow, wind, insects, and excessive heat. Sunrooms accomplish this goal because the walls, doors, and sometimes the ceiling, are built out of glass held inside an aluminum, vinyl, and/or wood frame. The glass used in the construction of sunrooms employs various technologies to make the Atlanta sunroom addition energy efficient as well as resistant to UV rays that cause sunburn and furniture fading.

Depending on where you live, sunrooms sometimes go by other names. In greater Atlanta, Georgia, a sunroom might be called a patio room, solarium, green room, porch enclosure, or conservatory. South of us, sunrooms are often called Florida rooms. Regardless of what you call them, sunrooms give you a panoramic feeling of being outside among the flowers and trees, but without the bother of bad weather, mosquitoes, and other outdoor frustrations. And, due to advances in construction techniques, sunrooms can be downright beautiful when viewed from the outside. You don't have to worry about your sunroom looking like a box stuck to the side of your house; today's stylish sunrooms come with pitched roofs, creative shapes, architectural detailing, and chic colors.
