11' x 14' Sunroom for $43K Reasonable?
I had a salesman from Patio Enclosures give me an estimate for an 11' x 14' screen and glass sunroom to be mounted on a pre-existing deck. The original deck needed a 4-foot extension to make the sunroom wider. Otherwise, everything was standard stuff: screen and glass walls, shingled roof, all made by Patio Enclosures. The estimate came up to $43,000, which I thought was extremely high. I read on this forum that a NJ homeowner had his bigger sunroom done for $17,000 in 2000 by the same company. Would inflation account for more than doubling the cost? Any suggestions on what to tell this salesman to entice him to bring the cost down and still have a quality Patio Enclosures sunroom? I live in Virginia 30 miles south of DC. Thanks for any feedback.
