What is a sunroom?
The concept of the sunroom began decades ago with the earliest homemade attempts to enclose front or back porches to keep out bugs & weather using wood posts and stapled screens or storm windows.
Over the years, Taylors has taken the screened-in porch idea, added advanced thermal window and roof systems, and created an engineering marvel in what is known as today’s contemporary sunroom that can be used in any season and protect you from heat, cold, insects, and pollen.
Homeowners can now effectively solve the problems of the outdoors, enjoying it more, and extending the ways a sunroom can be used.
Additionally, advances in sunroom design now give homeowners a wide range of attractive construction options – a far cry from the “box on a house” look popular throughout the ‘60s and ‘70s.
In short, a Taylors sunroom is a quality manufactured addition to your house that provides extended use of outdoor recreational space. A sunroom is a place to unwind, relax and spend time with your family and friends.
Why should I choose a sunroom over a standard room addition?
Each type of room has its own specific purpose, and you should first determine how you want to use your space. A standard room addition (studs, drywall, standard roof, windows, and integrated permanent heating/cooling systems) is designed to meet certain codes as a year-round, permanent living space, like a kitchen or a bedroom.
A sunroom is designed as an additional room on your house that protects you from weather and insects during the times you would want to be outdoors. It offers incredible flexibility to enjoy many activities such as soaking in a spa, entertaining, exercising, working, relaxing, and so much more. It is designed with wall-to-wall windows that provide panoramic views and protection from summer heat, high winds, and cold winters. Screen systems control insects and allow refreshing breezes. Thermal engineering and design help regulate the interior environment of the sunroom to keep you comfortable throughout many days throughout the seasons, and in many seasons throughout the year.
There are various options in a Taylors sunroom wall system that are designed to provide maximum thermal protection against cold and heat. These will extend the times throughout the day and the days throughout the year that your sunroom can be used. You may also add sunroom-approved heating and cooling sources for year around use.
In addition, a sunroom can be installed at a fraction of the cost and time compared to a standard room addition. Sunrooms may be installed on a variety of approved foundations (deck, concrete, and more) in just two or three days, compared to the weeks and months required for a standard addition.

Can I use a spa in my sunroom?
Spas are best installed at the time of original installation of the sunroom. In addition, you’ll want to consider the electrical needs for the spa during the sunroom’s installation. A spa can be added after your room is installed, but may require dismantling a portion of your room. Only a Taylors-authorized installer should handle this process, if it becomes necessary.
