At Burl-Oak Screen Sunrooms, we are proud to design and build custom screen rooms, sunrooms, covered decks, verandas and patios. And with each custom-designed screen room, there are a few main factors for homeowners to consider:

How Will It Be Used?

A lot of people have the misconception that sunrooms are just a covered outdoor space to use when you need to get away from bugs or rain. But sunrooms have many more uses, including home office, spa, exercise rooms and more. Before you decide on the type of sunroom you want, consider its primary use.

Type of Sunroom

Deciding how your room will be used is a great way to narrow down the type of sunroom you will want. Screened in porches, covered decks and verandas are great for summer use. Mylar and screen enclosures can be used throughout the year as a way to use your outdoor space when it’s too cold, wet or snowy to actually go outside. Insulated sunrooms can be used for almost any use, all year round.


When investing in any addition, including sunrooms and screen rooms, it’s important to make sure you know the size of the room you need. If you have specific furniture that your sunroom will need to accommodate, take measurements and calculate how large the room will have to be.

The View

There’s almost no sense in building a sunroom or screen room without anything nice to look at. Whether it’s your beautiful garden that you take so much pride in, or the conservation area your home backs out onto, consider the view your room will have.
