Sunrooms are usually add-ons that make you feel the warmth outside, without being outside, like a traditional patio.

Some Like It Hot

For most people, a patio is full of brick pavers extending from the back. The major difference between a sunroom and even an enclosed patio, is how a sunroom makes you feel as if you’re outside without being outside.

Our sunrooms are temperature controlled, yet freeing. When it gets too hot, you can open the windows without compromising your home’s internal temperature. We can do the same with screen rooms and covered porches, with fireplaces as added features.

Precision encourages our customers to be creative with their patio designs. Sure, you won’t have a roof or a complete temperature enclosure, but that doesn’t mean you should limit yourself to what everyone else’s idea of a traditional patio is. Let’s see what features will suit your needs the most.
