Construction Process

At ECCO Sunroom and Awning, we take the sunroom building process seriously. We only use our own employees that have been drug screened and have passed a criminal background check. All sunrooms, patio covers, solariums, additions and even screen rooms require engineering to meet minimum wind loading of 100 mph in Hampton Roads and 130 mph in most North Carolina Cities as well as continuous footings. The first two pictures show poured concrete footings that have passed inspection by the city.

Next, we frame the deck foundation and open deck area and get a deck framing inspection. Your sunroom or screen room can be installed on a monolithic slab and footing (slab and footing poured at the same time) typically if your home was built on a slab. Once your foundation is in we start erecting the walls of your new Patio Enclosure.

Once the walls of your enclosure are up, we install all of the custom made windows and doors. Next step is to install your new Energy Star rated roof which can have exclusive ComfortGard insulated glass panels patented by Patio Enclosures. Your year round room is just about done. Next we wire and install electrical outlets, lights and fans as well as an optional heating and cooling system for your Year Round Sunroom. We handle permits and inspections for electrical work as well. ECCO Remodeling, Inc. offers all types of installed finish flooring from carpet to porcelain tile for your Sunroom or Solarium. Last but not least, we get final electrical and building inspections for your sunroom. Time to enjoy your new sunroom from ECCO Sunroom And Awning!

Porch Conversions

Many homeowners across Hampton Roads have chosen to convert their screen porches into sunrooms. Converting a screen porch to either a sunroom or three season room extends the time you can comfortably enjoy the space with additional protection from the elements across the seasons. Not only will you have a living space you can enjoy throughout the year, you will add value to your home by converting your screen porch to a sunroom.

Do you have a screen porch that you barely use due to heat, cold, pollen, dust, or inclement weather? At ECCO Sunroom and Awning, we can transform your Screen Porch to a 3 season sunroom or year-round sunroom. With a sunroom, you can enjoy being outside without the bugs, pollen, rain and extreme temperatures we have here in Hampton Roads and North Eastern, North Carolina. 

ECCO Sunroom and Awning is the ONLY sunroom company that custom manufactures windows and doors in 1/8″ increments so that your enclosed Porch, Sunroom or Solarium looks just like it was built as part of your home. Other sunroom companies use standard size windows and doors which means they have to put ugly filler panels throughout the patio room to make their windows fit.
