Can a Sunroom Be Built Atop an Existing Deck?

Can a Sunroom Be Built Atop an Existing Deck?At some point in the ownership of your home, you may have had a deck installed. However, your dreams of family barbecues, sunbathing on lazy weekend afternoons, and other outdoor activities may have been dashed by the unforgiving whims of Mother Nature. A sudden storm, the oppressive heat of the sun, and the persistence of blood-sucking insects may have put the kibosh on any enjoyment you may have hoped to experience with your new deck, so now you’re looking for a different option: a four-season sunroom.

A four-season sunroom offers all the potential of making precious memories with your family as a deck, but with Mother Nature held in check. The resplendent glass walls will allow natural sunlight to flood the interior, which you can use for anything from a family room or nursery to a home gym or office. And you can do it all safely shielded from rain, snow, the sun, and those bothersome, winged pests. But can a sunroom be built atop your existing deck?

It Depends on What State Your Deck Is In

The primary concern with building a sunroom on top of an existing deck is if the deck is strong enough to support the extra weight. Sunrooms are heavy, and they can be even heavier if you’re located in an area that receives substantial snowfall. A deck that is deteriorating or that does not have a solid foundation may not be able to support the weight of a sunroom, in which case modifications, such as additional piers and joists, may be required.

Before moving forward with having a sunroom installed on your deck, it’s imperative that you seek the advice of a qualified contractor who can determine if modifications are needed to support the weight of your home’s new addition.

Jared, Clint and Paul came to the house and were very professional and polite. They installed our pellet stove and explained everything to us.
