Should I Get a 3 or 4 Seasons Sunroom? The Sunroom Showdown


Alright, sunshine seekers, thinking about sprucing up your place with a sunroom but stuck in the 3-season vs. 4-season dilemma? Fear not, we’re about to embark on a journey through the sunny side of construction decisions!

Breaking Down the Seasons: A Tale of 3 and 4

So, what’s the deal with these sunrooms, and why should you care? Well, it’s all about the seasons, baby!

3-Season Sunrooms: A Spring Fling

Imagine a sunroom that’s like a summer fling—great while it lasts, but not built for the long haul. Enter the 3-season sunroom, your go-to buddy from spring to fall. No winter love here, folks! But hey, bugs, rain, and dirt? They’re all locked out, leaving you with a bug-free, rain-free, and dirt-free paradise!

4-Season Sunrooms: The Year-Round Romance

Now, if you’re dreaming of a sunroom that’s more than just a seasonal affair, say hello to the 4-season masterpiece. Fully insulated, rocking high-quality windows, and equipped with its own heating and cooling systems – this sunroom laughs in the face of snowstorms! Winter, spring, summer, fall, it’s always sunroom season.

Choosing Your Sunroom Soulmate

Picking between a 3-season and a 4-season sunroom is like choosing between pizza and tacos – both awesome, but it depends on your taste! If you’re in a region where winter is just a myth, 3-season might be your flavor. But if you want to cozy up year-round, embracing all four seasons, then the 4-season sunroom is your snuggle buddy.

Biggest Mistake Sunroom Owners Make

Please don’t make the common mistake that many homeowners make of trying to heat up or cool their 3 seasons sunroom. They will end up with excess condensation inside their room which will inevitably cause mold growth and cause parts of your sunroom to rot; including the framing of the house. If the sunroom walls and windows don’t have thermal enhancers to stop that temperature transfer, your room will have condensation.

DIY Upgrade Alert: Turning 3 into 4!

Got a 3-season sunroom and feeling FOMO during winter? Fear not! You can turn that fair-weather friend into a year-round sidekick. It’s like a sunroom makeover! Upgrade insulation, slap in some quality windows, and add a mini split unit. It’s a project, but hey, so was building the Pyramids. If you don’t want to attempt the project on your own (link here), consult a home improvement wizard first, though – they’ve got the spells for this kind of magic.
