Turn a Deck into a Sunroom

Advantages of Turning a Deck into a Sunroom

A sunroom is much like a screened porch but has windows rather than screens, so it provides extended indoor living space year round. Turning a deck into a sunroom is a great way to add square footage to your home’s footprint. With the addition of heating to a sunroom, you gain an interior room that can be used in any way that suites your lifestyle.

We convert decks and screened porches into sunrooms for communities north of Atlanta, Georgia including Kennesaw, Roswell, Marietta, Acworth, Dallas, Woodstock, Canton, Holly Springs, and Waleska.

  • Provides complete protection from the outdoors.
  • Increases the value of your home with the additional square footage provided by the sunroom.
  • Suitable for year round use without regard to the weather.

Can My Deck be Converted to a Sunroom?

To determine if your deck can be converted to a sunroom, we’ll need to inspect it to evaluate:

  • Can your deck handle the weight of a new sunroom? Converting a deck to a sunroom requires adding a roof to the deck.  That is a lot of additional weight, and the deck support posts must be able to support that weight.  The deck footers, which carry and distribute the weight of the deck and new sunroom, must be an adequate depth to support the additional weight. It is extremely important that both the footers and support posts are sized and spaced properly to support a sunroom.
  • Is your existing deck built to code? If your deck is not built to code according to the Georgia deck building code requirements, we’ll bring it up to code before the conversion.  We require this since we assume liability for the sunroom, and a sunroom that’s not code-compliant can be a safety hazard.

Once your deck is ready for conversion, we begin the process of pulling permits (required by the state of Georgia) and designing a unique set of plans for your sunroom.

What’s Involved in the Sunroom Conversion

  • Installation of a tin or shingle roof
  • Framing the sunroom structure
  • Installing a vapor barrier house wrap
  • Low E windows and energy efficient doors
  • HVAC and electrical installation
  • Insulation
  • Siding
  • Interior drywall for the walls
  • Installation of a Tongue & Groove ceiling
  • Trim around doors and windows
  • Baseboards
  • Flooring
  • Painting

We will provide you with flooring samples and paint swatches, so you can integrate the look and feel of your sunroom with the rest of the house.

Sunroom Windows

We install Andersen Windows or Pella Windows in our sunrooms which use Low E glass and are argon filled to improve energy efficiency and reduce energy costs. This is important since it is estimated that heat gain and heat loss through windows are responsible for 25% to 30% of a home’s heating and cooling energy use according to energy.gov. These windows are low maintenance to make your sunroom virtually maintenance free for years to come. 

Sunroom Flooring

Typically we install a 1/2″ or 3/4″ sub-floor over your existing deck boards and then install LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) flooring over the new sub-floor. We provide flooring samples for you to choose from to coordinate with the interior design of your home.

Convert a Screened Porch into a Sunroom

Converting a screened porch to a sunroom is typically a straightforward process, since the roof and majority of the structure are already built.  We’ll examine the existing structure to ensure it’s build to code. If not, we’ll make the necessary repairs to bring it up to code before the conversion.



CHL understood our vision and executed it beautifully. They built a large screen porch with a gabled roof. They also recommended and worked seamlessly with another contractor to build a stone patio outside the screen porch. They handled everything including replacing an existing deck, building a new deck and roof structure, installing electrical, cladding all exposed structural wood and painting. Chris was easy to work with through the entire process. It looks amazing.

We are really happy with the work CHL did at our house. They turned our screened porch into an additional room—installed 3 windows, dry wall, electrical, added AC vent. They also repaired some of our large deck, added a stair case and replaced an exterior sliding door. Chris and his team were professional, clean, upfront and hard working. We appreciated Chris’ communication and honesty about the project and it’s completion.

We hired Chris and his team to rebuild our deck and turn it into a screened porch. Every step of the process exceeded our expectations. CHL Services is responsive, affordable, and they show up when they say they will. We’ve had bad experiences with contractors in the past, but I can say with full confidence that I would recommend CHL Services to anyone I know and that we will absolutely use this company in the future for additional remodeling projects. Thank you for your professionalism and exceptional quality of work. We could not be happier!
