If you’re interested in adding a 3-season sunroom onto your home, you’re probably curious how much it’ll actually cost you. We are here to give you an idea of overall cost on a 3-season sunroom and what factors can influence that cost.
A 3-season sunroom is a cost-effective alternative to a 4-season sunroom, because it’s not designed to be heated or cooled year-round. But don’t let that make you think you won’t receive a great quality room! 3-season sunrooms are a great way to add space onto your home that makes you feel like you’re at a relaxing getaway.
Overall Approx. Cost
The cost of a 3-season sunroom can range anywhere from $10,000 to $70,000. The range in cost is so large because of a variety of factors. Materials, labor, the market. Let’s break those down.
Materials used to build a sunroom can have an impact on the overall cost:
If the cost of materials rises, then that will cause the overall cost to also go up. However, there are also times materials can be on the cheaper end, making the sunroom cost cheaper too. Keeping an eye on the value of materials you plan on using is a great way to save extra cash on your project!
Materials also play hand-in-hand with the market; they’re dependent on each other. If the construction market is booming, materials could be cheaper and vice versa. The U.S. construction market is expected to register a CAGR (compound annual growth rate) of 4.2.% over the years of 2019-2024. It’s expected to ease the trade tensions and boost economic growth.
Companies will charge different amounts for labor. However, just like materials it’s easily influenced by the overall market. Labor is also influenced by location, contractor quality, and installation time.
- Location– Depending on where contractors are located it will impact costs. For example: companies that are in an economically depressed area may have lower labor costs than companies in places with a higher cost of living.
- Contractor Quality– A red flag you need to watch out for when shopping for a sunroom is when the cost of labor is suspiciously low. The quality of work isn’t exactly something you should try to lower.
- Installation Time– Time is money! Depending on the length of the sunroom installation the less time should lead to a lower price and vice versa.
Customization has a major impact on the price of your 3-season sunroom. Here at Porch Conversion, all of our orders are custom! But that doesn’t mean it has to be expensive.
