Sunroom options in Charlotte, NC and price points

custom built sunroom in Charlotte

Energy-efficient custom built sunroom with lattice under deck

More and more people are wanting to add on to their homes with specific rooms that allow a lot of light in and make us feel like we are on vacation without having to leave our home. When people refer to a sun room, there are many options and connotations that we will clarify in this blog.

The definition of a sunroom is: “a structure usually constructed onto the side of a house which allows enjoyment of the surrounding landscape while being sheltered from adverse weather conditions such as rain and wind.”

Having said this, some people refer to a screen porch as a sunroom also and if you look at the definition, it is close. One of the key differences is how important it is that this space be heated and cooled. While living in the Charlotte area allows us to live on a screen porch about 80% of the year, many want the ability to be using this sunroom year around.

There is a hybrid between a screen porch and sunroom that we have found to be quite popular and used in neighborhoods from Ballantyne Country Club to Beverly Crest and Providence Plantation. This is a custom-built structure that has Eze Breeze windows installed in it. This would act as a convertible screen porch/sunroom.
These are plastic porch windows that slide open and closed depending on if you want to avoid pollen, rain, wind, and cold temperatures. On beautiful days, you slide the windows open and you are back to a screen porch.

A fully heated and cooled or what we refer to as conditioned space is becoming more popular the past couple of years as a place where you can feel outdoor without actually being outdoors. These rooms are extensions of the house itself and often use hardwood floors or tile that match the existing flooring. We spend a lot of time with our customers helping define what their needs and wants are so we can best advise on what will work for them.

When it comes to price points, an average screen porch is going to be between $15 – 25,000. An Eze Breeze porch will add on average about $5,000 to the screen porch price. Finally, a sunroom on average will run from $40,000 – 80,000 depending on size and materials!

“Where is the best place to put a billiards room in your house if you don’t quite have the space”

Billiards tables are large, heavy, cumbersome, and really great for recreation and entertaining! Where is the best place to put a billiards table in your home? If you purchase a regulation size billiards table, you not only need room to support the table but additional room to manuver your pool stick. There just aren’t that many rooms in the average home to accomodate this. Archadeck of Charlotte designed and build this outdoor living room that is designed to be a screen porch, sun room, and billiards room! The room features EZE Breeze windows that are retractable and convert a screen porch into a sun room and right back again.  A typical billiards table is 7′ x 3’6″ and then there should be at least another 3′ all the way around to manuever. So if you don’t have the ideal spot in your house for a billiards table, why not design and build a combination screen porch and sunroom that can also house the pool table? To see more rooms, take a look at Archadeck’s photo gallery at http://www.charlotte.archadeck.com

Archadeck replaces roofs too!

Archadeck of Charlotte has been replacing roofs for the past several years. It only  makes sense, we add over 200 room additions, sunrooms, and screen porches every year to homes around the Charlotte market and are always tying into existing roofs. Now more than ever as existing homes are aging, people are having us replace their entire roof so it all matches perfectly.

In addition, Archadeck has been called upon more often than ever to just come out and replace consumer’s roofs even if we are not building a room addition or screen porch. They just love our quality, integrity, and we have earned the trust of the market. We continue to grow our business of remodeling homes in Charlotte as we started off as a deck builder 21-years ago. It is hard to believe the growth of the brand and the company in this economy.
