Choosing the Best Sunroom for You

by Steven Leonard 11/03/2019

If you spend more time at home and wish to have a more expansive area for both your kids and their friends to hang out, then you need to consider a sunroom. You can turn your deck into a fantastic sunroom addition. Follow the tips below for choosing the right sunroom: 

Compare the price and value of a sunroom 

Make sure you get the exact cost of the project from your dealer. Also, consultants can give you tips on how to make use of your patio or deck for the foundation of your sunroom addition. Try to schedule an appointment with the consultant rather than asking for the cost over the phone. You cannot get the real price over the phone. It is essential that you compare the value of each product before considering a sunroom company.

Make an inquiry about the electrical raceways

To avoid living in a place where the electrical system is not up to code, you must be confident that the sunroom has an electrical system that meets the area’s coding laws.  The electrical raceways should not interfere with the sunroom décor. 

Check the roller wheels on the doors and windows 

The doors and windows are critical when building a sunroom. Apart from providing the outdoor feel, for complete insulation during the four seasons of the year, the windows and doors are required. The roller maintains the smooth operation of the regular-sized doors and windows while the big windows and doors need a steel wheel on heavy wheel tracks. 

Consider the Energy Star 

Energy star is a national program that is involved in the rating of energy products. The term "four season sunroom” means that the sunroom is suitable for use throughout the year. Some sunroom designs can earn the energy star. If thinking of buying a four-season sunroom, make sure the roof system is energy star qualified. 

The screen should be glare free 

Many screen companies will show you photographs of a screened porch and sunrooms that possess fiberglass screens. You should note that black aluminum enhances your outdoor view. When compared with fiberglass screens, black aluminum screens are stronger. 

Take note of the handles 

The handle of the sunroom's door should be durable and easy to use. Furthermore, the screen handles should be adequately sized and tightly fastened.

Get the right permits and inspection 

It is necessary you know the licenses that will be needed and how you will get them processed. Also, know who will schedule the inspection as laid down by your local building department. 

If you plan to add a sunroom to your home, follow the above tips for the best sunroom that will give you the value for your money.
