Need more room for the holidays -- A Columbia outdoor room may be the answer

Would an outdoor room addition such as a sunroom, screened porch or 3 or 4-season room satisfy your need for more livable space for the holidays?

When a deck is not enough, consider a Columbia outdoor room addition!

Outdoor rooms provide various levels of comfort while still allowing you to enjoy the beauty and splendor of the outdoors, even during the ever-changing seasons of fall & winter. With the impending arrival of the holidays and the flurry of family and friends coming to call, wouldn’t it be nice to have additional outdoor and indoor living space? We know how “cramped” conditions can get as loved ones converge on your home. Having additional functional room for dining, relaxing or even extended holiday decorating can put your mind, and your patience, at ease.

Our large portfolio of outdoor room designs includes structures that function as additional conditioned indoor space, as well as rooms and porches that can be used for three and even four seasons throughout the year.

A sunroom

White painted sunroom

A sunroom is a room that functions as an interior room but allows you to take in the vistas of the outdoors year-round. You can enjoy a cup of cocoa from a warm and cozy nook inside your sunroom and watch the snow fall in the winter undaunted by the chill of Mother Nature. A sunroom, in essence, is an interior room with many windows. Sunrooms require the same construction fundamentals that an interior addition requires, such as HVAC systems , meaning they are insulated, heated and cooled.

Sunroom with outdoor fireplace and Christmas decors

Choosing a sunroom for your home opens up a greater realm of interior finishing choices than you can get with other outdoor living structures. These materials include ceramic tile, hardwoods, wood trim and moldings, and more. Since the use of Sheetrock comes into play with a sunroom, you can use paint, faux finishes, wainscoting and even wallpaper to show off your personal style. During the holidays, a sunroom or four-season room will allow you extended decorating capabilities and even provide an alternate spot to trim a holiday tree. A sunroom will often have dual entry from the interior of your home as well as the exterior via a deck, patio or porch to deliver convenience for indoor and outdoor entertaining and indoor to outdoor transition.

Screened porches and three-season rooms

The screen porch is a covered porch that has screened openings instead of windows. The screen serves as a barrier from bothersome insects and inclement weather. Having a screen porch will give you the opportunity to have an “outdoor” room without the exposure to the harsh elements. Since screened porches are shade structures because they are built under the cover of a roof, they supply superior protection from the sun, heat and inclement weather as well.

Screened porch with outdoor fireplace and Christmas decors

Screened porches can be outfitted with a wide range of amenities much like an interior room. Ceiling fans, recessed lighting and even a place to mount your outdoor TV have become common among homeowners building a screen porch. You can even upgrade your screen porch by adding luxurious amenities such as an outdoor fireplace or a sliding window system.

Aluminum & vinyl outdoor rooms

Aluminum and vinyl outdoor rooms you a luxury living space, are custom-made to order and designed to match your home’s architecture and colors. Unlike other aluminum outdoor rooms that are built using a kit, we custom design your outdoor room according to your spatial needs, your roof pitch and interior amenities desired.

Seating area on screened porch

Our convertible outdoor rooms are designed to make your porch or patio more usable year round. We offer custom made-to-order components allowing you to have fun designing an outdoor space that’s just right for you. You can use them to replace existing screened enclosures or to add a new one. These porch enclosure systems deliver the best of both worlds — screen when you want it, or a more enclosed “windowed” room when you want that, too!
