Creating a sunroom in a home brings the outdoors in with all the comfort of a living space. For this recent Charlotte home porch to sunroom conversion, the homeowners wanted to update this addition and modernize the materials. The existing porch was dated and not energy-efficient, making it not so pleasant during very cold or hot weather.

Removing the Old Porch

As you can see from the before pictures, the porch addition had stairs leading in from the outside and old “jalousie” windows. We began by removing the stairs. The stair removal was necessary so that access to the new room was within the home, so it flowed with the rest of the layout.

The windows and siding were removed next. From there, our crew had a clean slate to start building the homeowner’s dream sunroom.

The New Sunroom Provides a Place to Relax

The most important part of any sunroom remodel is the windows. There are now three windows at the front and back and four on the side. They now let the sun nestle the space, but the room’s temperature should remain the same with energy-efficient windows. The homeowners will be able to gaze at the bright days from the windows but still feel comfortable.

New Siding Modernizes the Exterior

The second part of this exterior transformation was adding new horizontal siding. The vinyl siding has a clean, modern look. It’s low maintenance and dependable, so homeowners don’t have to worry about the constant upkeep of the home’s exterior. The white trimmed windows pop against the darker siding giving the property much curb appeal.

More Details for a Refreshed Exterior

We completed the job by adding a few more finishing touches. First, we trimmed the gable at the opposite end of the home to match the sunroom side, providing a cohesive look for the house. New soffit and fascia were also part of this project. Replacing the soffit and fascia wasn’t only for aesthetics, as we painted it to match the siding; it also protects the home against the elements.
