How much will my project cost?
Often when people call us about a project, they have no idea how much something will cost – and why should they?
Building an outdoor project is not something you do every day. But we do it every day, so we have put together the following general price guidelines to help you plan for your project.
The word sunroom means different things to different people. Normally, we think of a sunroom as an insulated, heated, and cooled year-round space attached to your house. We build a sunroom with the same level of foundation, structure, trim, and finishes as the rest of your home. Our goal is to design and build it to look like it was always there rather than an afterthought.
Sunrooms usually have a lot of windows to let the sunshine in. Often, when people ask us to build a sunroom, they are addressing a specific need that their house lacks. Perhaps they want a place to sew, to read, or to gather with friends. Because sunrooms represent air-conditioned space, they add to the square footage of your house. That means a sunroom will directly add value to your home when you decide to sell the house.
Usually our sunrooms start at around $50,000, while the average price is around $70,000. We often convert existing porches into fully finished sunrooms, and the cost of these conversions is much lower, starting at $20,000 and averaging $45,000. The biggest cost factor in a sunroom is usually how it will be heated. We’ll determine whether it can be tied in to your existing HVAC system. If not, we can add a new system to heat and cool the new space. Room size and flooring choices can also have a significant impact on the cost.
