Sunroom Exposed to Ellements


Hi all,

I have a sun room off the back of my house that is considered a 3 season room. It is screened in only so it is open to all the elements here in the north east. With that said, the previous owner used MDF wood boards for the ceiling, and well over time they warped and bowed. It probably looked great when first installed but I have since removed it and threw it out. What product exists that I can use to cover up the beams and the poor craftsmanship of how it was built ? Once covered up I am sure it will look a lot better, but I at least want to buy a product that can withstand temperatures, moisture, etc. Appreciate the ideas.

Thanks!

Any issues with roof or other leaks?

not sure what your room looks like but have you considered T&G cedar perhaps?

Thanks for the suggestion, never thought of T&G cedar? Ill have to check it out.

No roof leaks, it is a flat roof that is sloped to allow rain water to run off.

I would also look into replacing the screens with actual windows.

I did and it would be very expensive given that the walls are like 1-2" thick and the size of the screens would require custom glass windows being made. It was a thought but at that point I would want to knock it down and rebuild it and that would get expensive.

Yes it cost more but then you would have a real 4 season room and far less damage on the inside.
Hope that was a typo, walls that are 1-2" thick!
Need those pictures.

Here is an image I have from the summer. You can see its not something that was built out to be much of anything.
