Lititz, PA Patio Sunroom (3-Season Room)
One of our favorite ideas for converting an enclosed deck space is this three-season room renovation in Lititz, PA! We turned this existing concrete patio into an enclosed room that blends beautifully with the aesthetic of the original house.
This charming new deck sunroom features sturdy walls and an enclosed roof with skylights to allow ample glorious sunlight in, especially during those dreary winter months. The Eze Breeze windows can be opened to reveal a screened or unscreened view, allowing plenty of fresh air to move through the entire space.
Award-Winning Grantville, PA Deck Enclosure (4-Season Porch)
This Spitler Renovation project was a complete overhaul of the home’s exterior, including the deck. We replaced the old, worn-out deck with a beautiful new one that perfectly complements the rest of the home’s new look – as well as building a deck sunroom atop of it!
With gorgeous Marvin Elite fiberglass windows and a heating system connected to the house, this conversion of a deck to a sunroom is one that the owners can utilize contentedly every day of the year.
Lancaster, PA 3-Season Enclosed Deck

Why Turn Your Deck into a Sunroom?

In addition to the financial advantages, here are a few other reasons to convert a deck into a sunroom:
- Maximize the time you can spend comfortably enjoying the outdoors
- Save money by building with what your home already offers
- Enjoy sunlight and warmth during drab winter months
- Extend the usable square footage of your home
- Removes the annual chore of putting outdoor furniture in storage and performing deck/ patio maintenance
- And so many more!
