Deciding Between a Seasonal or Year-Round Sunroom
The weather in Northern states like Minnesota and Wisconsin feature extreme temperature fluctuations. While summers are hot and wet, the winters are freezing, snowy, and windy. The range of seasons is part of what makes these states interesting and charming, however, it can also make it difficult to enjoy the outdoors. If you’re a homeowner in this region, there is a way to comfortably enjoy the views of the outdoors without having to contend with the elements: install a sunroom. This new home addition will become the perfect lounging space for you and your family to use without worrying about harsh temperature fluctuations, bugs, dirt and debris, and other aspects of Mother Nature.
Which Type of Sunroom is Best for You?
A seasonal sunroom—also called a three-season sunroom—is ideal for those who want to enjoy the expansive views and natural light of the outdoors, but not necessarily during the harshest low-temperatures of the year. Rather, these sunrooms are typically only used during the spring, summer, and fall, as their aluminum frames are not engineered to prevent heat loss. Because of the material and construction, seasonal sunrooms are a more affordable option than their four-season counterparts. Seasonal rooms allow you to enjoy the outdoors day or night without interruption by bugs or bad weather.
A year-round sunroom is designed with maximum glass that allows you to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors with indoor comfort. Our year-round rooms are stick-built to blend with your home or are thermally protected engineered aluminum for even greater glass. The rooms are typically installed on code compliant insulated decks to maximize energy efficiency while minimizing disruption to your home and yard.
To decide which sunroom option is best for you, you should consider your budget, what you plan to use your sunroom for, how often you plan to use the room, and what features you want it to include. These are all factors that we can help you consider at The Board Store. Our home improvement company is proud to offer three-season and year-round sunrooms that are engineered for efficiency and comfort and provide the added space you desire for great moments or family gatherings.
