Three-Season or Four-Season Sunroom?

Maybe you’ve been thinking about adding a sunroom to your existing home. If so, would you add a three- or four-season sunroom? What’s the difference? And how do you choose?

First of all, it’s important to note that sunrooms in Ontario should not be confused with atriums or solariums. A sunroom to withstand our harsh winters needs to be constructed with energy-efficient glass/walls, have a properly insulted floor structure, plus pre-engineered roof construction manage snow load.

Lifestyle Home Products is the respected manufacturer of sunrooms made for the Canadian climate. Lifestyle manufactures its custom sunroom panels and components in Peterborough, Ontario – taking great pride in providing a product that is also 100% Canadian-made.

Here’s how we outline the different three and four season sunrooms we make:
