Three Season Sunroom
Three-season sunrooms have lots of windows and provide tons of natural sunlight, but they don’t have heat and can’t be used in Winter. Because they don’t have heat, they’re perfect for Summer, Fall, and Spring, hence the name 3 season room. Most three-season rooms start as a porch, patio, or deck, but they can also be built from the ground up.
Three-season sunrooms bring the outdoors inside while providing a stunning architectural element to your home. They bring in tons of natural light and can be well insulated, keeping them comfortable most of the year. But they do get rather cold in the Winter months.
We’re one of the few sunroom contractors in NJ that builds on a solid foundation with extremely well-insulated walls, floor, and ceiling. This means that your three-season room can be kept warm in Winter by adding a portable space heater, even though the room technically isn’t heated.
Since a three seasons room isn’t heated, it can’t be integrated into the home unless the existing home’s heating can warm the space. This draws heat from the rest of the house, so it must be carefully calculated by doing a heat loss. But don’t worry, we can do these calculations for you.
Because of all the added sunlight, your sunroom may get warm in the summer, so blinds are always a nice touch. To add coziness in the winter, add a fireplace. Want even more natural light? Add some skylights or a full glass roof. But to truly bring the outdoors in, decorate the room with plants and add sliding glass walls for a true indoor/outdoor experience.
A Gambrick sunroom can be designed to match the look of your home, or it can be something unique that stands out. Each of our sunrooms is 100% custom-built and tailor-fit to the client’s style, needs, and budget.

What Is a Three Season Sunroom?
A three-season sunroom is an addition that isn’t heated, so it’s most comfortable in Summer, Spring, and Fall. Hence the name, 3 seasons. However, we still insulate our three-season rooms, so you can connect a portable space heater and use them in the Winter months. This saves money on the cost of the build.
Our three-season sunroom designs provide lots of open space for fresh air and natural light and the comfort to be used almost year-round.
The insulation R-value of our floors, walls, ceilings, and glass exceeds the minimum R-value required by the state, so your three-season room can easily be converted to a four-season room simply by adding heat. However, the heating must be permanent, not a portable unit that can be easily disconnected.
Why Add a Three Season Sunroom?
You’ll truly appreciate the advantages of a three-season sunroom in Summer, Spring, and Fall months. Our designs provide lots of fresh air and natural light, making them a great place to lounge, read, relax, watch TV, or grow plants.
Building a three-season room can increase your home’s resale value, but they’re not considered living space and don’t count towards the square footage of the house. However, because we insulate our three-season rooms, you can make them living space simply by adding heat.
Once the room is heated, it becomes an all-season sunroom, which counts as square footage and increases your home value even more.
Here are four of the biggest benefits of building a three-season sunroom:
Gambrick uses high-quality materials and a full concrete foundation to build all of our sunrooms, including our three-season rooms. This allows us to build a floor, ceiling, and walls that can accommodate R-values high enough to pass state code for living space. Typically that’s R-19 to R-23 in walls, R-30 in floors, and R-38 in ceilings.
Insulating a three-season room is a huge benefit when compared to non-insulated sunrooms because they’re versatile. Bring in a portable space heater and use it in Winter, or add heating and turn it into a four-season sunroom at any time.
Sunrooms have an air of elegance and sophistication when they’re designed and built properly. The glass allows for more brightness and adds character to the home. Sunrooms also bring new design options into play like exposed beams, a wood ceiling, vaulted ceilings, walls of glass, glass roofs, or more skylights.
The exterior of your sunroom can be integrated into the look of your home, or you can do something different to make the room truly stand out.
3. Natural Light
As a top sunroom contractor in NJ, we’ll design a dream space for enjoying all four seasons with the benefit of being indoors. You’ll appreciate sunny days and cold nights with lots of natural light at just the right temperature.
Natural light can provide both mental and physical health benefits for you and your family. You might notice that you have more energy, improved sleep, and reduced seasonal depression when you spend more time in the sun. It can even reduce the health risks associated with exposure to fluorescent lighting and it’s better for your eyes.
A sunroom is also an excellent place for growing and maintaining beautiful and healthy plants. You can plant species native to hot and humid climates and enjoy gorgeous blooms throughout the year.
4. Increased Home Resale Value
A sunroom built by Gambrick can significantly increase your home’s resale value because it adds more space to the home. Since sunrooms tend to be on the pricey side, it’s easy to recoup more of the construction expenses, making sunrooms a great financial investment for homeowners in terms of ROI.
