ECCO Sunroom and Awning, offers sunrooms, screen rooms, pergolas, shade canopies, awnings and decks. We design and build residential  sunrooms, awnings, solariums, conservatories and decks for all of Hampton Roads, North Eastern North Carolina and the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

We have specialized in building sunrooms and awnings in Hampton Roads since 1990. We are the only continuously operating sunroom company in the Greater Hampton Roads and Richmond area. Other sunroom companies closed their doors during the economic downturn of 2009 leaving their customers without service. We have always been here for our customers, including the ones left in the lurch by other sunroom / awning companies.


I had the opportunity to speak with several companies in the Hampton Roads area that would satisfy my need to purchase an awning for my newly constructed home. I was particularly impressed by the Design Consultant from ECCO Sunroom & Awning, Mr. Niles Groves. His professionalism and product knowledge of awnings made it easy for me to decide which way to go when it was time to settle on a purchase. He displayed multiple examples of awning fabrics, colors and suitable framing that accented my homes curves along with satisfying my particular style. There was no need to compare any further. One visit and my search was over.

Thank you for your professional service Mr. Groves

Friedrichsen – Virginia Beach, VA

ECCO Sunroom and Awning enclosed our porch and created a wonderful sunroom.  The ECCO team provided a pleasant experience from our initial contact with them to the conclusion of the installation.  We understood the materials that would be used and had a timetable for the project.  All of our questions were answered thoroughly, and we were updated as we moved through the installation process.  The crew was careful and cleaned up so there was no evidence they had worked around our shrubs and in our flowerbeds.  Now complete, our sunroom looks like it has always been here.  We love enjoying the garden in comfort, without regard to the weather outside, all day and every day.  The “height” of unsolicited compliments came from the gentleman who climbs on our roof to clean our house gutters:  he complimented the “seam alignments” and said whoever did the installation did a great job!  We highly recommend ECCO Sunroom and Awning.

We had a wonderful experience with ECCO. For those who are looking for the low-cost competitor for awnings; don’t. A superior product and superior install will give you the longest lasting awning that looks great attached to your home. This is what ECCO delivers; a high quality product with a high quality installation with great warranties. ECCO installers removed the siding, installed a ledger board, coverer and flashed the board, reinstalled the siding, and routed the wire inside the wall. The low cost competitor wasn’t going to do anything like that; they just going to screw the awning to the studs over the siding and it would have looked horrible. I am glad we chose ECCO; they delivered a product that looks as nice retracted as it does extended and will hopefully last for years to come.

Compliments to everyone on the Ecco Remodeling team for a beautiful outcome on our converted screened porch. I was able to receive an excellent financing option, our sales rep was knowledgeable and helpful. But particular thanks are extended to our installers for a job well done and to the office manager who handled some hiccups with promptness and professionalism. I highly recommend this company for sunroom remodeling.

We had a screen porch removed and a Sunroom installed. I must say that we love the outcome, it’s better than we could have hoped. We have referred friends and family to work with ECCO and we would use them again in the future.

Dodson (Hurricane Update) – Yorktown, VA

Our new under-pergola canopy from ECCO Sunrooms & Awnings managed the hurricane well. Matter-of-fact, a downburst of wind blew under the deck and completely knocked out a section of lattice; not just a piece of lattice, but an entire section – framework and all – where it was screwed into the deck itself. Yet, up on top of the deck, all went unscathed.

S. – Virginia Beach, VA

We installed a motorized awning with ECCO Sunroom & Awning in spring 2019; it’s been installed professionally and on time. It’s working as expected for the second summer. We even recommended it to our family, happy with it also.

Dodson – Yorktown, VA

Just a note to say “thank you” for the installation of our new under-pergola canopy system. The canopy looks great with Merrilyn’s material color selection against the house’s color in the background, and the system is easy to operate and does so, smoothly.

Your leads mechanic, Ricardo and his assistant Bo showed up on-site as scheduled and worked steadily the entire time while here. Both gentlemen exhibited themselves as professionals and carried themselves accordingly; at the same time, they were polite and courteous.

The system installation was neat & clean, with the surrounding area left in the same condition as when the ECCO crew started the job.

I just want to let you how much we are enjoying our new Sunroom and to thank you for all your help in making recommendations and suggestions during design. We finally have it furnished and have been enjoying it for 2 weeks now. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be our favorite room. Even before it was furnished we received many complements. Thanks again Ed, and to Eddie, and to all the different crews involved in the construction (foundation, construction, electrical, and flooring). The work was all first class and proceeded in a timely manner and minimal disruption to us.

The ECCO Sunroom & Awning 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.

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 sunroom.

Once the walls of your enclosure are up, we install all the custom-made windows and doors. Next step is to install your new Energy Star rated roof which can have exclusive Comfort-Gard insulated glass panels. Your year-round room is almost complete. Next we wire and install electrical outlets, lights and fans as well as an optional heating and cooling system for your year-round sunroom. ECCO handles all permits and inspections for electrical work as well. Our team offers all types of installed finished flooring from carpet to porcelain tile for your sunroom or solarium. Lastly, we get final electrical and building inspections for your sunroom. Time to enjoy your new sunroom from ECCO Sunroom & Awning!

ECCO v. The Other Guys

When it comes to investing in your home by adding a new sunroom, converting a screened-in porch, or gaining more shade on your patio with an awning, you want to make sure you’re choosing the right company. Here are some of the ways we differentiate ourselves from The Other Guys.

ECCO Sunroom & Awning

The Other Guys

During our free idea meeting and design consultation, ECCO Sunroom & Awning will develop a custom design plan for your project. We will evaluate the existing space and bring pictures and samples to guide us in developing the design for your project. Owing to our detailed plan, we are able to provide you with a tailored quote versus estimate range.

Without a detailed design meeting up-front, other home remodelers only provide an estimate or price range for your project. This approach opens you to additional costs as the project unfolds.

Each sunroom and awning project our team creates is unique. We customize each project to meet the needs of our clients. That’s why our first conversation starts with a free in-home idea and design meeting where we assess your space, listen to your ideas, and develop a personalized plan. Our custom design plan will be sure to integrate seamlessly with the style and structure of your home.

Other home remodelers only offer prefabricated sunroom and awning products. They do not have the ability to develop custom designs.

Without custom design options your new awning or sunroom will be less likely to look integrated to the look and style of the rest of your home.

For over 3 decades, our team has designed and built over 11,000 sunroom and awning projects. We are Hampton Roads’ sunroom and awning expert.

Jack of all trades, master of none. Remodelers who tackle all areas of home projects do not have the insight or expertise that an exclusive sunroom and awning builder has. 

We confidently offer the ECCO Limited Lifetime Warranty on all our sunrooms, solariums and screen room. This warranty covers all manufactured products including glass, roof panels, framing, sealing and more. Ask your design consultant for more information.

Other home improvement companies pass along manufacturer warranties that require you to mail parts back to the manufacturer to qualify for repair or replacement.

Our sunrooms are custom designed and built in 1/8” increments. Elements such as roof type and material, glass types, door and window options are all customizable. Our awnings are customizable with more than 100 options, including fabric style and colors, and size width, and extension dimensions.

Other home improvement companies have a limited offering in styles and options for sunroom and awning projects. They use standard sized windows and doors and install filler around them giving you much less window and screen area.

ECCO Sunroom and Awning is a Virginia Class “A” contractor. Our team is licensed and insured at the highest level. From start to finish ECCO’s team (not subcontractors) will be designing and building your project.

Other home improvement companies outsource elements of their projects. Not only can this approach extend the timeline of the project, it can also increase the cost of your project.

ECCO has been exclusively designing and building sunrooms and awnings for over 30 years. We have a 4.9 out of 5 star rating and have completed over 11,000 projects in Hampton Roads. We have had an A+ rating with the BBB since 1990.

Few, if any, local companies have the years of experience nor have completed the number of sunroom and awning projects that ECCO Sunroom and Awning has.
