Four Season Porches

Plenty of Windows

Unlike a three season porch, four season porches (sun porch, solar porch, sun room, solarium, and conservatory) usually have:
  • Insulated walls and ceilings
  • Insulated glass windows and doors
  • Heating/cooling systems controlled by thermostats (i.e. climate control
  • Few structural elements meaning more natural light is allowed in

Do you have the luxury of having a four season room?

Our good friends, Dan and Rosemary, have one and they tell us that they spend hours there every day - listening to music, reading and relaxing.

Properly oriented, these special porches and their counterparts act as solar heaters. The heat can also then be transferred to other parts of the home.

Sun Porch Addition

The easiest and simplest way to add a sun porch to your home is to purchase a manufactured or prefabricated structure. These are built to attach easily to your home and come in many different styles, sizes, configurations, and shapes. Look at some of the options you will have with manufactured sun rooms:
  • Wood or aluminum frames
  • Glass roofs or conventional (shingles)
  • Different roof heights and slopes
  • Different wall heights
  • Built in or installed shades/blinds
  • Heating / cooling options
Most building codes require a foundation with a perimeter footing below the frost line. Check your local building codes.


A DIY Project

Building an existing porch into a 4 season porch is doable if you have the right skills and knowledge or willing to invest time into learning exactly what's needs to be done. Check out our Build your own front porch section for more details before you tackle this project!
