Sunroom additions, sometimes referred to as solariums, are a great addition to any home that offers homeowners the opportunity to add a room with lots of natural light, ventilation and indoor/outdoor accessibility. But before making the decision to add a sunroom, there are some things to consider.
First, decide where the sunroom will be located. This will depend on the size and shape of your house, the intended purpose of the sunroom as well as the amount of sunlight your home receives.
Sunroom additions usually go on the side of the house that receives the most sun, but you can choose any side.
Next, think about the type of materials you want to use. Sunroom additions are usually constructed from wood, aluminum, or vinyl and need to be properly sealed to prevent any air leaks. Consider the type of glass you want for the windows and the materials used for the walls and roofing. The roofing material should be designed to protect the interior of the sunroom from the elements.
You should also consider other aspects of the sunrooms such as the amount of ventilation needed, the type of lighting, the type of flooring best suited for the space, and how the sunroom will be used. With that, it’s best that you seek a help from sunroom contractors to get the job done right and prevent any hassle.
