As of 2016, styles of deck/patio enclosures include three season rooms, four season rooms, traditional sun rooms, solariums and screen rooms. These and other plans are available on PatioEnclosures.com, and additional deck/patio enclosure plans and ideas are available on Front-Porch-Ideas-And-More.com. Many of the plans include accompanying photo galleries.
The three season rooms on PatioEnclosures.com include those with existing roofs, single slope roofs, white aluminum frames, custom gable roofs and custom wood roofs. The entries include photos, and users can click on individual entries to view frame color options, frame styles, locking systems and door handles. The website's four season rooms offer customization options and large windows that ensure plenty of sunlight on sunny days throughout the year. Both first story and second story four season room plans are available.
Screen rooms include screened-in patio rooms, screened-in porches or screened deck enclosures, and these offer both access to outdoor air as well as protection from bugs and insects. Some include extruded aluminum frames for extra durability. Traditional sun rooms use traditional material such as wood and drywall, and serve as an extension of main home structures. Customization options include a pool or a connected outdoor deck.
Visitors to PatioEnclosures.com can plan their own sunrooms and receive free consultations and in-home estimates from the plan providers.
