What are the most popular framing materials for sunroom construction?


Each choice you make during the planning and construction of your sunroom is an important one, as it will decide the style and longevity of your new addition. Upon making plans for adding a sunroom to your home, one of the early decisions youll have to make is what kind of framing material youd like used. There are pros and cons to the popular choices, so make sure to consider all of your options before making a decision.  


Wood Sunroom Framing


One of the most common framing materials for any kind of structure — including, likely, your own home — is wood. Because it is used in a variety of construction projects, using wood to frame your sunroom will allow for consistency in your structures integrity and continuity in design. 


Aluminum Sunroom Framing


Another common material used in framing a sunroom is aluminum. This material allows for more durability and is better equipped to handle the weather, as it doesnt rust. Because of this, aluminum framing requires little maintenance, and many find that the result is aesthetically pleasing. Global Solarium uses 100% thermally broken frames, eliminating the transfer of hot and cold, meaning your sunroom will be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.


Vinyl Sunroom Framing


Another common framing material you can choose for your sunroom is vinyl. This material is lightweight and durable, making it the first choice for some builders. Vinyl is also efficient and low maintenance, so it allows you to spend less of your time worrying and more of your time on the things you enjoy the most.

Choosing a framing material for your sunroom is an important decision that will set the tone for the look and feel of your new space. Spend some time thinking about which choice feels right for you and your sunroom goals.
