A sunroom is meant to extend the outdoor livability of an open patio area in spring and fall, to keep out insects, and to provide a lovely, relaxing area for enjoyment and entertaining. Your new sunroom can be rectangular or bowed, and can have shed, peaked, domed or curved roofs. It can be a kit or a new or existing stick-built room with big, bright multi-paned windows. They can range from a 6 x 9' kit with acrylic panels for under $2,000, to palatial three-season rooms costing $20,000 to $30,000 and up. It is also possible to get a DIY kit.
Lightweight sunrooms don't bear snow loads as well as those with heavy, durable structural elements, but may be perfect in mild climates.
