At ClearView Sunrooms & Windows, the most difficult part of our jobs is hearing our customers lament that they wish they had built their sunrooms sooner. While we feel gratified our customers are enjoying their sunrooms (usually four season sunroom additions for year round use), we are frustrated too. In most cases there is no good reason to delay building. The result of the delay is they deny themselves the enjoyment of the room. Our experience tells us enjoying their sunroom is a huge part of their Return On Investment (ROI).

To clarify, many people confuse a Four Season Sunroom with a traditional room addition.  A traditional addition will usually have a few more windows than a home living room. 

On the other hand, a Four Season Sunroom will have virtually all windows. Sunrooms are built specifically to accentuate window and glass area to embrace an outdoor experience - while sitting indoors protected from bugs and the elements. 

Conversely, when using traditional building methods, Wisconsin building codes and materials needed limits the amount of windows - glass area.  The result is traditional room additions can make if feel as if you are sitting in just another room in your home.
