Sunroom / August 5, 2018 / Baptiste Allain
Triple pane low e-glass windows are perhaps the best windows for sunrooms and will provide the best energy efficiencies. However double pane windows that are argon-filled will provide substantial energy efficiency as well. Single pane windows are the most economical but least energy-efficient. Another window option is single solex glass which is tinted green and designed to minimize heat absorption into the room. Solex glass reflects ultraviolet rays to protect skin furnishings and floor coverings. It is more expensive than other glass types. Window Treatments Window treatments for sunrooms are much like those for any room in your home. Plantation shutters are a popular option as are sunroom blinds.
What guarantees do you have for yourself? Can you afford any mishaps or damaged materials? When your project is finished will it add value to your home or decrease the value of your home due to poor artisanship? These are the types of things to consider when thinking of building a sunroom or any addition by you. Manufacturers offer warranties they are insured and boned; their crews are licensed in their particular craft. If anything goes wrong or breaks they cover the costs not you and the value of your home will increase. In addition most manufacturers will have your sunroom built in a matter of a few days so you can begin to enjoy all of its hidden pleasures.
Having a sunroom in your home will pay for itself not only in the amount of pleasure it brings to you and your family but because it will make your home more marketable in one of the tightest real estate markets in decades. Before You Build Your Sunroom Being able to afford the most expensive sunroom in the world will get you absolutely nowhere if your local building and zoning codes do not allow you to construct it. So pay a visit to your zoning board and find out not only whether you can actually add a sunroom to your home but also if there are any restrictions as to its dimensions and design. After youve been cleared for sunroom construction you will have to think about whether you are simply going to build your sunroom on an existing deck or porch or whether it will sit on its own foundation.
