Sunrooms and Patio Enclosures for Your Lancaster, PA Home
Wouldn’t you love to come home from a long day of work and sip a cold lemonade in your brand new sunroom or screened-in patio? You don’t have to worry about the weather elements when you have a cozy enclosed patio room or when you add a beautiful, spacious sunroom.
Add a SUNROOM to your beautiful home
The defining feature of a four seasons sunroom is that they have a “vast amount of glass” in them. Sunrooms have come a long way from the glassed-in porches of the 1960s. Today’s versions are full-fledged year-round 4 season sunrooms featuring cathedral ceilings, skylights, energy-efficient windows, tile flooring, heat, and air conditioning.
Sunroom additions bring the outdoors inside – but without the bugs and bad weather. As a result, they quickly become the family’s favorite hangout spot.
Choose stick-built sunrooms vs. pre-fab kits
When you are thinking about adding a sunroom to your home, the primary consideration is this – site-built or pre-fab kit. Shakespeare, your sunroom specialist, believes there is no comparison between the two!
Pre-fab kits for sunrooms
- Designed and fabricated at an off-site location and shipped flat
- Look and feel of an add-on and do not match the architecture and design of your home
- Foundations may not support future add-ons
- Like other pre-fab structures, they will not hold or increase in value
- Connecting exterior siding, brick, etc. wall of your house is usually left untouched – redoing this is extra
- Typically have the minimum amount of electric receptacles as building code will allow and it is very difficult to add any electrical once assembled
Stick-built option for sunrooms
- Custom built on-site just as you would a regular addition or even a house – foundation is laid, walls are framed, roof trusses built, and the entire structure is wired for electric and can be plumbed if needed
- Seamless flow between your existing home and the new sunroom so it appears it was always a part of the home
- Because they are built on a foundation, future add-ons can usually be done very easily
- Shakespeare can build a custom designed stick-built sunroom to your home for equal to and often less than a pre-fab kit.
- The choice should be very clear; a “stick-built” sunroom addition that looks like the house makes the most sense – financially and aesthetically.

Add a PATIO ENCLOSURE to your beautiful home
A patio enclosure is one way to expand your living space, or “internal area” in your home. This is done using your existing porch, patio, or an external area as a starting point. We offer many patio enclosure options—in fact, the enclosures can usually be built on existing decks and patios. Additionally, we’ll always make sure you have adequate foundation to build on.
Building a patio enclosure is an effective, usually less expensive way to update your home. This is due to the fact that you have an existing “foundation system and roofing structure” to work from.
Whether you want to add to the aesthetic beauty of the house, increase living space, enclose a current patio, or simply create a dry, shady spot to read that favorite book, a patio enclosure is a great addition to your home. It will bring the outdoors to you, and will give you a comfortable space for your family and friends to enjoy for years to come.
