Screened Patios Vs. Glass Sunroom Enclosures: Which Is Right for You?, Blairsville, Georgia

An outdoor room is a great way to enjoy your back garden without being exposed to the elements. But when you’re preparing for your addition, you face the decision between building a screened patio or glass sunroom enclosure.

Today, the talented craftsman at Backyard Enclosures, serving the Blairsville, GA, area, offer a complete breakdown of each type of outdoor room to aid in your decision. Take a closer look at the advantages and disadvantages of each type of outdoor room.

Screened Patios Vs. Glass Porches

Screened Patio

Screened patios offer an affordable level of security and protection from insects and outdoor creatures while still offering homeowners the chance to enjoy the fresh air. The biggest advantage of a screened-in porch is the price point. Even intricate custom designs are usually less expensive than their glass counterparts.

During summer, the humidity can be intense, so the lack of air conditioning on the porch may be an issue. However, you can combat the heavy heat by including a ceiling fan in your porch design.

Glass Sunroom Enclosures

An enclosed, glass sunroom has the advantage of being temperature controlled regardless of the season. It can easily be attached to your current heating and air conditioning system to provide year-round climate control. This type of outdoor room also offers an unobstructed view of the outdoors without dealing with any unwanted creatures.

The biggest disadvantage of a glass porch is its price. The amount of design and materials involved is usually associated with a higher price point than a screen porch.

Once you’ve decided between a screened patio and a glass sunroom enclosure, call the outdoor room professionals at Backyard Enclosures to get your project under way.
