There are so many wonderful features of a sunroom that it’s no wonder many people have created that special space in their home.
A sunroom is a versatile addition to any home and can be used for many different functions such as entertaining, crafts and hobbies, dining, a home fitness center, a home office, and many more – all while enjoying the benefits of sunlight streaming in.
When deciding on the type of sunroom to get, you have choices. You could go with a DIY kit, but there are a few things to be aware of with this option. The kits come to you in pieces for you to assemble. Not all kits contain every item you’ll need. You may have to purchase eavestroughs, foundation fasteners and other items separately.
It’s also important that you have the tools and the skills to assemble the kit and a knowledge of local building codes to make sure you meet all the requirements and have the necessary building permits. Local building codes may also require that you hire licensed professionals such as electricians to perform different parts of the assembly and installation.
Some prefab sunroom manufacturers have affiliated contractors who will assemble the kit for you. Naturally, there’s an additional cost for this.
A custom-built sunroom is another option, and one that many people choose. Custom building a sunroom provides you with many more design and color options as well as customized features.
A good sunroom contractor will help you with all of the design features such as the best location and shape of the sunroom, how to seamlessly integrate the new sunroom into the rest of the home, what type of windows and doors to use and how they should be configured, how to maximize the energy efficiency of the space, and so much more.
Your contractor will also have an in-depth knowledge of local building codes and will get any necessary building permits.
