How Much Does it Cost to Convert a Screened Porch to a 3 Season Room?

Transform your screened porch to a 3 season room with Archadeck of Charlotte

At Archadeck of Charlotte, a popular project we take on is converting an existing screened porch into a 3 season room. This is called a porch conversion or a porch retro. Homeowners call on Archadeck to help them upgrade their screened porch. This typically involves replacing screens, decking, ceiling, and accessories. When asked how much it costs to convert a screened porch to a 3-season room, the answer isn’t as easy as one number. Because no two projects are the same, the price heavily depends on the shape of your existing porch, the size of your space, materials, permitting, and more.

Let’s take a look at this Rock Hill, SC Porch Retro

Retro Porch
This existing screened porch served for many years as an outdoor retreat for these Rock Hill homeowners. After thinking about it they decided it was time to call Archadeck to help them transform their screened porch to a 3 season room.

Project Details

This Rock Hill Porch Retro consisted of a bit more than simply replacing the porch screens. The scope of this project included the following:

  • Demolition of the porch walls, stairs, decking, and ceiling
  • Re-decking the existing deck in Pressure treated pine
  • Rebuild a T&G Pine ceiling
  • Reframe porch for 4-track windows
  • Install Eze—Breeze Windows
  • Install a new door
  • Add a drink rail in wood around the porch
  • Re-deck the stairs outside of the porch in TimberTech Dark Cocoa decking

As you can see, this porch was much more than simply replacing screens with windows. Porch conversions require strong attention to detail to preserve the existing porch while changing the interior and exterior.

How much did this Porch Conversion cost?

After evaluating the space and scoping out the specs of this project, the final cost rang in around 22K. We commonly hear “We are just replacing the screens with windows” but people don’t consider that it requires much more than just popping out the screens. Porch conversions can range in cost depending on your situation but it’s safe to assume you will pay anywhere from 15-30K.
