Sunroom FAQ

Sunrooms are a great addition to any home. They increase the square footage of your home along with its overall value. In addition to increased value, sunrooms can be enjoyed year-round and fill your home with natural lighting. We understand that any addition to your home will come with questions. We want you to rest assured that the experts at The Window Source have the experience to help you find the sunroom of your dreams.

What will a sunroom cost?

The Window Source believes in upfront pricing. A porch enclosure sunroom can vary from $5000 to $10000 or more depending on the size and specifications. To get a price from The Window Source, we’ll schedule an expert to come take a look at your home and talk with you about what you have in mind. We take measurements, show you the products we offer and give you a written price. We require a 50% deposit to start the project and also offer financing options for the rest, including special financing for 12 months with approved credit.

How long does installation take?

Installation of a sunroom varies depending on the size. An average sunroom installation takes anywhere from 2-3 days, up to a full week. During a consultation with a Window Source expert, we can assess the project and give you a time frame to expect. After placing an order, we will order your custom windows and all products needed to complete the project.

From purchase to completion you can expect about a 4-6 week period.

Will a sunroom increase my energy cost?
