A three season room can be an extremely beneficial home investment. While many different kinds of improvements allow for the enjoyment of the outdoor spaces of your home, a three season room provides protection from the elements, giving maximum value. 


There’s a few different things to consider when it comes to estimating the cost of building a three season room. The amount you’ll need to spend can vary widely based on the material used, the finishes that have been chosen and where you live.  


Get Estimates


It’s really important when undertaking any kind of home improvement project to obtain estimates. You’ll get ballpark figures of how much it will cost you and you’ll be able to get a few ideas from each professional as to how they will go about completing the project. You’ll be able to create your ideal model this way, just by asking for input. The cost will depend on other factors like whether demolition needs to be involved, or how much site preparation is needed.


Use What You Have


Existing structures on your home may be used to build a three season room. A porch or deck may have the ability to be closed in. As long as the condition is good, or the structure is sound, it’s easy to use these parts of your home that are already there to build an area to enjoy the outside. A three season room needs a combination of glass, windows, screens and a sturdy floor.


Roofing 


It’s important that you match roof of your sunroom the existing roofing materials on your home. You can choose from a variety of different kinds of roofs from simple to more elaborate styles. For even more light in your sunroom, think about adding a skylight. 


What The Estimate Should Include


The estimate of your three season room should include all of the following areas:


  • Foundation
  • Framing
  • Electrical
  • Moldings
  • Doors and windows
  • Drywall
  • Skylights
  • Screens
  • Ceiling fans

The cost of labor will also be included in the estimate. Carpenters charge around $70 per hour. Electricians range in their charges from $65 to $85 per hour. It will most likely require many different contractors in order to complete the job of creating your three season room. When your building, the most important thing is that you add the aspects that you’ll enjoy the most throughout the year. Another important point to remember is that the room will be exposed to the elements, so it is possible that dirt and dust will build up quickly in the sunroom. You should plan accordingly to make cleaning a breeze.  

No matter where you live, it’s always great to maximize your enjoyment of the outdoors! Building a three season room can give you the ability to to do just that.
