Ottawa’s most established Design + Build renovatorOakWood brings over half-a-century of renovation expertise to your sunroom or solarium project. The reason that’s so important is that it means we know how to design, plan, and build a sunroom or solarium that will be a seamless extension of your existing home. We don’t have “sunroom kits” that have already been designed. The sunroom or solarium or conservatory that you get from OakWood will be designed and tailor made for your home. That means you will get a unique solution. It will look beautiful. And it will add value as well as years of enjoyment.
Get answers to your questionsA new sunroom, solarium, four seasons room or conservatory can make all the difference in the level of enjoyment you get out of your home. Whether you are looking for a seasonal sunroom or a 4 season sunroom extension or you simply want to start with a sunroom design, chances are you have questions! Like these:
- What structural issues need to be considered?
- What kind of building permits do I need?
- What are my best material options?
- What are my design options?
- What could my new sunroom or solarium look like?
- What kind of experience and qualifications should my contractor have?
- How will a large project like this be managed?
- How long will my sunroom project take?
- How much will my new sunroom cost?
You probably have lots of other questions. But these are probably some the big ones that you need clear answers to before making a decision to go ahead confidently with your project and choose a renovator or contractor. That’s why OakWood recommends starting with its free QuickQuote™. You’ll get answers to all of those questions and a lot more.

Sunrooms take special design and material considerationsOttawa summers are blisteringly hot. Our winters rival the freezing temperatures found in Siberia! It’s an extreme and punishing climate. That’s why building four season sunrooms – or a more glass-intensive conservatory – takes special planning, energy efficient material considerations, and a professional design if you want to add optimum value to your home and maximum enjoyment pleasure (without sending your heating and cooling costs through the window!).
