Frequently Asked Questions for Sunrooms
What is the best way to utilize a sunroom?
Sunrooms are used for many reasons: entertainment, place to relax, room for my pets, TV room, enjoy the outdoors and seasons… the list goes on and on. Finishing touches like beautiful flooring and wicker furniture help create that perfect retreat.
What are the advantages of Craft-Bilt’s sunrooms vs. competitors?
Craft-Bilt sunrooms have many technical advantages, like thicker wall extrusions with intelligent designs.
All of our sunrooms utilize swivel header designs that support the weight of the roof evenly and eliminate unsightly gaps inside the room that competitors don’t address or cover with an ugly angle.
Weatherstripping is important to keep out the wind and bugs; our Grand Vista Sunroom uses ingenious concave tracks to cradle the weatherstripping, while our Betterliving™ Sunroom uses mylar-reinforced weatherstripping to achieve FMA certification.

How much does a three season sunroom addition cost?
There are a lot of variables: Is a new deck required? New footers? Is there an obstruction, an exhaust fan or a water spigot that needs to be moved? An installed 12 x 12 three-season sunroom will start around $20,000, not including the deck, building permit application/drawings and other factors.

How to Heat and Cool your Sunroom or Solarium?
All-season sunrooms, referred to as four-season sunrooms, are meant to be enjoyed all year.
There are three-season sunrooms and all-season sunrooms, and there are solariums and conservatories. Most sunrooms are added to the house without removing the patio door to the house, although sometimes the door is removed, and sometimes an entire section of the house wall is removed to open the sunroom completely to the house.
Heating Your Three-Season Sunroom
Although all-season sunroom sales are growing, most sunrooms sold today are three-season rooms. The windows are single-pane glass. Three-season rooms are great for sun worshippers because the smaller sashes (window framing) allow for maximum glass area and maximum ventilation. A three-season room does not alter the existing building envelope.
