What is the difference between a sunroom and a conservatory?

Many people ask what is the difference between a sunroom and a conservatory. Although many people think sunrooms and conservatories are the same, there is a vast difference between the two. Both can provide an extra room and space in your home for little expense, however there is a difference in structure and it is important to choose which build is more suitable for your home. One of the main differences between a sunroom and a conservatory is that a conservatory has a glass roof, while a sunroom has a solid roof, both of which can be created to suit the design of your home.

Choosing between a sunroom and a conservatory

The factors to consider when deciding on whether to build a sunroom or conservatory are pricing (cost is an important consideration for most of us), warmth and the ability to control the temperature and heating in a room, especially considering the weather conditions in Ireland and strong sun available in winter.

A sunroom can give the feeling of being outdoors while still protected from the elements and enjoying the view fo the garden.

We used Crystal Complete Building to build a third story sunroom on our private residence. Both ourselves and our surveyor found Daragh Carolan to be very competent, efficient, and helpful. During the construction Daragh and his crew were friendly and approachable but polite and unobtrusive. They were punctual and kept affected areas clean. The project was finished on time with no complications and we are delighted with the results. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Crystal Complete Building for any similar work.

Crystal Complete Building, Seamus Carolan and sons Daragh and Stephen, carried out major work on my large attic, ca. 50 sq. m. during May to July 2011. They worked efficiently and with a minimum of fuss or mess. I employed them following a recommendation from a friend and had no regrets. Any minor queries were sorted out without fuss. I would have no hesitation recommending them to any potential customer. Also, I had no concerns having them carry out work in my absence.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Crystal Complete Building as a small family building business. The quality of work which they provide is second to none, and their work ethic is such that I found it a pleasure to have them under take two separate tranches of work. Finally, in terms of neatness and punctuality, they tick all the boxes.
