Sunrooms are a fantastic addition to your home if you want the best of both worlds – the outdoors brought inside! A sunroom can provide a happy medium between the bright visibility of being outdoors while allowing you to remain inside and control the temperature within the comfort of your own home. Sunrooms can be installed with extensive windows along the walls and on the ceilings to brighten the room and enhance natural sunlight, making it the perfect place in your home to retreat to when it’s too warm to be outside, or when you want to listen to the sound of the rain without getting wet.
Building a Sunroom
Building a sunroom starts with measuring out the anticipated space where you’d like to install your sunroom. Many clients have existing sunrooms that they’d like to either upgrade or they have rooms they’d currently like to convert into a sunroom. If you don’t have either, we can still help by adding a sunroom extension to the back of your home so that you can have access to sunlight and brightness whenever you like, through the creation of an enclosed space where you can manage the interior temperature.
Converting a Sunroom
Some homeowners may already have outdoor storage spaces or extra rooms towards the back of their home that would serve perfectly as a converted sunroom. We can assist you in not only applying for the correct permits to convert the room into an extension of your home, but we can help you do so in a way that keeps your sunroom functional and safe for any purpose. Your sunroom will operate like any other room in your home, but it will provide more direct sunlight and visibility. You will also be able to access your sunroom directly from the other rooms of your home, usually your dining room, kitchen, or living room.
Windows and Walls
One of the biggest differences in a sunroom, when compared to other rooms in your home, is that a sunroom's windows and walls are typically made of the same material – glass! When you build an interior room of your home, your ceiling and walls might be made of concrete or drywall. In a sunroom, all of the surrounding structures are usually glass and provide greater brightness and sun visibility. You can reduce the amount of visibility you want in the sunroom when customizing it to your liking.
Another thing you may want to consider when thinking of installing or converting a room into a sunroom in your home is the value that you’ll be adding to your home. If you’re considering selling your home in the future, having a sunroom is a great way to add significant value to your home because it can be counted as an extra room in your home and it provides a leisurely space for the homeowners to lounge, store furniture, host guests, or utilize the room as they see fit. Adding a sunroom will inevitably add value to your home!
