Fort Mill SC screened porch to sunroom conversion

Fort Mill, SC, screened porch to sunroom conversion by Belk Builders.

This year a friend received luxury suite tickets to the NASCAR All-Star Race at the Speedway and invited me to go. Wow what an experience in such an awesome amenity rich, climate controlled room with a view! Although a lot of fans believe the sights, the sounds and even the smells are what make NASCAR, some people can get overwhelmed by all of those things and that can inhibit their enjoyment of such an incredible sports event. This same sort of thing happens to some homeowners, when they try to spend quality time in their outdoor living space. Insects, outdoor allergens, dirt, mold, mildew and for some, even the sun can be real hamper for outdoor living.

Recently, Belk Builders was contacted by Fort Mill, SC homeowners with this exact problem. They had an outdoor living space, a screened porch to be precise, which they weren’t able to fully enjoy. During our free in-home consultation, we discussed their options to improve their outdoor living space, and after much consideration regarding the multiple benefits of a sunroom (as listed below), they decided to convert their screened porch to a beautiful custom sunroom.


A sunroom:

  • Greatly enhances the look and curb appeal of your home
  • Adds value to your home
  • Creates a room which is free from the irritants of seasonal allergies
  • Using natural light, it saves energy (compared to a traditional room addition)
  • Provides emotional benefits of sun light (increased Vitamin D and stress reduction) without harmful UV rays
  • Is a party room that is protected from sudden thunderstorms that pop from a Carolina blue sky
  • Is a dining area with a clear barrier against pesky mosquitos and stinging insects
  • Is a pollen-free outdoor living room
  • Is a comfortable way to enjoy the outdoors
  • Is a great solarium-like room for plants

Not only will everyone enjoy being outside without worrying about heat, cold, rain, harmful UV rays or insects, but they will also be able to relax while taking in the view of their beautiful surroundings from the comfort of an enclosed room.

As the Charlotte area’s premier upscale home exterior contractors, we at Belk Builders use only the finest quality products made by some of the best manufacturers.  To pull together this conversion, we replaced the screened panels with Simonton windows, installed a Therma-Tru door and finished the exterior in Hardie® Board, painted in white to match the façade of the existing home.

Simonton replacement windows are consistently our most requested product line because of their aesthetically pleasing appearance, innovative designs, energy-efficiency, value, and durability. We paired these beautiful windows with a Therma-Tru door system, which offers the same quality, beauty and durability. Tying these elements together to create a beautiful space which seamlessly blends with the original structure was easy with the use of Hardie® Board, the premium exterior siding which offers maximum durability, resistance to prolonged exposure to cold temps and moisture and has a long-lasting low-maintenance finish.
