What to look for when adding a sunroom to your home
There are many benefits of adding a sunroom to your home. It can supply you with extra space without undergoing a major renovation, give you a unique spot to transform into a cozy hangout and add resale value to your home when it's time to sell.
"[Customers have said] it's become the most used room in the home, it's open and airy and it brings the outdoors in all year round," said Dennis Manak, director of sales at Alure Home Improvements.
Model the sunroom according to the design of your home
Professionals can adapt the addition of a sunroom to the current design of your home so it's a seamless transition.
"You want the sunroom design to blend into the style of your home's architecture so it looks like it's part of the home – not just added to it," said Manak. Whether it's matching the style of roof, roof shingles, siding or stone, sunrooms can be built from a basic, nice, neat and clean look to a more design-influenced room that's the envy of the neighborhood.
No need to rely on your imagination to envision your sunroom
Adding a sunroom to your home is a major project that you should be proud to show off. Make sure you love the final product before it's even created. Find a company that uses a digital imaging program, giving you the ability to envision exactly how the sunroom will appear in relation to your home, eliminating all uncertainty and helping designers give you precisely what you're looking for.
Decades of experience
Do some research before you pick a company to work with. Look for longevity and experience. You want a company who specializes in sunrooms and who will be there in case there is a problem or you need service down the line. Make sure they are licensed, insured and have years of experience in their field Choose a company that will give you peace of mind for your sunroom addition to ensure a smooth, timely and beautiful project that you'll love to show off.
Look for a sunroom that comes with a warranty. Most sunrooms should have a manufacturer warranty associated with it, however, some companies provide a labor warranty as well. Make sure you completely understand the warranty information and fill out any necessary paperwork if needed.
A sunroom can be a wonderful addition to your home and add some much needed extra space to your home without the lengthy construction time.
