We highly recommend ECCO if you’re considering a sunroom. Their staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and their costs are certainly fair! Highly recommend!


It was such a wonderful experience purchasing my ECCO Awning. From the initial consultation to the final installation, all the employees were very professional and pleasant to deal with. The awning is amazing and I would highly recommend ECCO to family and friends!


We purchased windows for a DIY sunroom that we are building, and I couldn’t be happier with the quality and look of the windows. Eddie and Pilar were very professional and helpful when making our final decisions. They answered all of our questions in a timely manner and shared business experiences that gave us confidence in making the right decision for our project. I would highly recommend ECCO Sunroom & Awning, they won’t steer you wrong.


We love and have been enjoying our sunroom by ECCO! We enjoy sitting in our backyard now without the annoyance of all the bugs. We look forward to enjoying our sunroom throughout every season, year-round.


We are so pleased with our sunroom. It looks like it was built when our house was built. It is a beautiful addition to our home. Tristan was on time ever yday and completed his tasks on schedule. We have gotten so many compliments on the custom windows. Our view to the wooded area out back is unobstructed. We have enjoyed meals and quiet time in our new room. It truly is an addition to our living space 😊!!


We have just finished a remodel in our back yard and needed a covering to complete the project. After lots of searching, ECCO came out to give us a quote on an awning for our back patio. They were very responsive and came out within days. We had a quote that day that was very reasonable. We felt very comfortable with the price and it was actually better than most quotes we had already received.

Our representative was very professional and we definitely felt that he had our best interest in mind. We didn’t just feel like a customer, but we could tell they take pride in their work and want every job to be the best it can be.

They have been fantastic to work with and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a backyard patio, awning or enclosure.


Great service! Very easy to do business with the company and the associates. I highly recommend them!! I love my new awning!!!


The sales representative was great!! He was on time for the appointment and had everything needed to measure up what we wanted. He was very understanding that we were on a budget and showed us different options on what could be done. I am very happy that he took the time not only to listen to what we wanted but also listened to what we had to say and showed us different options that would fit our budget better.


I absolutely love my Sunspace. I can’t thank all of you and the ECCO company enough for making this happen. The quality of this structure is unbelievable and it’s extremely beautiful. Also, the crews that you sent to do this job were amazing. They were very talented and professional. I’m glad that God directed me to your company because I don’t believe any other company would have done the fine job that ECCO did.

ECCO did an amazing job on our new sunroom. From start to finish they were professional and kept us informed throughout the process. Our sunroom is now where we spend all our time. Thank you.

ECCO did an outstanding job with our new sunroom! ECCO successfully tied into an existing sunroom and the job looks great! If you are considering a new sunroom then ECCO Sunroom & Awning is the contractor to choose. We are very pleased with our room and are enjoying it everyday, more than we thought we would!


ECCO did a great job with the sunroom… The staff always answered my questions via phone call and email. The workers that came out were professional and experienced. The sunroom is beautiful and even through the cold weather the family is able to sit outside and still be comfortable. The glass is amazing and really blocks out the cold wind and air. Thank you ECCO for the new upgrade to the house.


ECCO did a fantastic job with our new sunroom! This build came with some challenges since they were connecting to another room. ECCO successfully tied into the existing room and the job looks great! We are very pleased with the outcome of the room and enjoying it everyday! If you are considering a sunroom then you should consider ECCO. You will not be disappointed!


I am very pleased with my sunroom that was completed by ECCO Sunroom and Awning of Chesapeake on the front of my house in 2019, I really love it. In fact, I loved it so much, I got another sunroom added to the back of my house last month (Aug 2022). It is beautiful and I am enjoying both of them. If you interested in getting a sunroom addition to your home, ECCO Sunroom and Awning (Chesapeake) is the place to get it from. Very pleased with the product as well as the company!


ECCO installed our solar shades on time, as promised. The installation crew was pleasant and efficient. They returned for some minor adjustments, no problem. The shades are fantastic!


We recently converted our screened porch into a sunroom. We are delighted with the finished room! ECCO staff and workers were prompt, professional, friendly and eager to make sure we got what we wanted. The sliding windows and screen are top quality and very easy to open and securely lock. We highly recommend doing business with ECCO!


After two years and ten home-improvement projects working with a plethora of contractors, I can say that ECCO has been one of the best companies I’ve hired. Erica ensured the process was pleasant and worry-free from our first meeting to the last. Kelvin and crew did a phenomenal job installing; they were punctual and professional. My family and I were enjoying our new pergola by dinner time. Great job!

 I will be referring this company to anyone I know that is looking for this type of product! I feel my money was well spent for the exceptional service and product I received from ECCO! I now have the beautiful, comfortable and functional sunroom of my dreams!
We absolutely love our porch, it has enhanced our home and will be used frequently when the weather permits, and continuously when spring and summer arrive. The porch is well constructed and enhances the safety of our home as there is no way one could break through the doors or windows. With the housing market booming this investment will improve the cost of our home by far more than the cost to build. We are so happy that we purchased this beautiful addition for our home and family.
I love what they did to our sunroom! Absolutely perfect! Great quality, good price and everything is on time.

This is our second ECCO sunroom. When we moved to a waterfront home, we knew that a sunroom would enhance our view and appreciation of the location. We wanted to have an old wooden deck removed, and replaced with a new deck and sunroom area on the rear of our home. Our very professional design consultant presented us with various options. He listened to all our concerns, suggestions, etc., and designed a perfect 4 seasons sunroom for us. All of our communications with the company were polite and in a timely manner. The workers on our new deck and sunroom, as well as the electrician were professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. Both the sunroom and deck are of the highest quality products and will last forever! We would highly recommend ECCO Sunroom and Awning to everyone.


Our consultant, Erica, was very pleasant and on time. She was informative and provided us with a variety of options for our awning project and patio enclosure. She answered all our questions simply and if she didn’t know she referred the question to someone in ECCO who had the qualifications to answer. She made us feel comfortable, demonstrated her products and made the entire process feel seamless. I would definitely recommend her to my neighbors.

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


Our recent experience with ECCO Sunrooms was a very pleasant one. We are delighted with out new sunroom and looking forward to spending many contented hours there.   Thank you and KUDOS to all who were involved in making Our dream a reality.

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.

Sunroom Exterior

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.

Yorktown, 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.

Newport News, 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.

This is the first time getting work done on house is a pleasant experience.

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.

Very satisfied with workers who clean-up when the work finished.

The ECCO Sunroom & Awning Construction Process

At ECCO Sunroom and Awning, we take the sunroom building process seriously. It is our goal that at the end of the day you will have a beautiful sunroom or awning that looks like it came with your house. As if we were never there.

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. The 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 the 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 offer the best warranties in the business on all of our products. We confidently offer the ECCO Limited Lifetime Warranty on all our sunrooms, solariums and screen rooms. 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 of professional installers and carpenters will ensure the highest quality workmanship.

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.
