Sunrooms and Screen Porches by Conrad & Conrad Inc.
Sunrooms, screen porches and patios are the personal areas of your home where you can get away. These areas are where you can relax with friends and family and enjoy the outdoors.
We design our sunrooms to make use of as much of the natural light as possible. Roof over hang is considered, to limit summer sun. Ventilation is also important so operable windows with screens are usually used.
Screen porches allow you to get the outdoor experience without the bugs. These areas are usually low maintenance and built out of materials that can stand up to the elements.
Whatever type of outdoor living area you are considering be it a screen porch, sunroom, patio, front porch cover or gazebo, we visit with you and listen to your ideas. We discuss the types of materials that are available and give suggestions of options that my be possible. We develop a detailed estimate and proposal from this meeting. When you receive the proposal and make changes if needed, we meet again and adjust it to best suit your needs and budget. If you award us the job at this point, we meet with you again to pick out your materials if needed.
Customer service, safety and satisfaction is our main goal in all of our building and remodeling business and we do this for all of our clients.

The first row of pictures above are a screen porch that has a treated floor joist system. Timbertech twin finish plank was face screwed to the floor joist with stainless steel screws. Half walls were built for some privacy and covered with vinyl siding on the exterior and pickled beaded pine paneling on the interior. Cathedral trusses were used for the roof system and the ceiling is beaded vinyl soffit. A vinyl screen door was installed to exit onto the composite deck. The screen system used on this project is Screen Ttight.

The first five pictures are of a deck which we reworked the floor system and and post supports. The concrete slab had to be cut and pier holes dug to support the new loads. We then built a shed roof system and covered it with roofing. The framing and roof sheeting is exposed. TimberTech Floorizion was installed for the decking. Arndt & Herman vinyl rails and Screen Tight were also installed. The remaining pictures are before and after pictures of a sunroom. We tore down the old sunroom and built the new one to give a full 8' high ceiling. Due to the low pitch roof, we had to use Muel Hide EPDM rubber roofing. Taller SilverLine Low E windows to catch as much of the natural lighting as possible because this is the shady side of the home. The exterior is covered with vinyl siding and pvc/aluminum trim coil. The interior is painted with bright colors to accent the natural lighting and laminated flooring is installed as the floor covering. A through the wall was installed to heat and cool the new room.
