While we love to repair any make of sunroom when they need it, it is best for homeowners to take preventative measures.
Here are a few tips that will help you protect your investment and ensure years of enjoyment from your relaxation space.
- Trim Branches and Foliage
Keep tree limbs and bushes around the sunroom trimmed and maintained. Storms and high winds can drive branches through the windows or roof. Additionally, keeping bushes and hedges trimmed back prevents encroachment by insects and pests.
- Keep Gutters Clean
Gutters around the sunroom should be cleared of debris regularly to avoid damage from water draining improperly from the roof due to the blockage.
- Keep Windows Clean
Sunroom windows should be cleaned regularly. The outside face of the windows should also be cleaned at least every few months to avoid the buildup of dirt. Do not wash windows with a power washer or pressure washer.
- Inspect Walls and Floors
You will want to keep a close eye on the floors and paneling to avoid costly termite or other pest damage.
- Replace Window Seals
After a certain amount of time, window seals can start to fail. When this happens, moisture can seep in, permanently fogging the windows. To avoid replacing all the windows in the sunroom seals should be replaced which is a much quicker and cheaper fix.
Repair costs can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.
