Sunroom / July 27, 2018 / Onfroi Berger
This task is fairly easy to accomplish. You can either look your local agency up in the phone book and give them a courtesy call or go down to the local office where they will be more than happy to assist you in explaining the local zoning laws and building codes that may or may not affect the construction of your new sunroom. They may even be able to help you find a local contractor that they have had do business for them in the past or even give you multiple contractors by printing you out a list of certified contractors that work in that local area that are very proficient in the zoning laws and building codes in your neighborhood.
The final kit based on the design that you created will be shipped to your home and will include customized installation plans as well. Possible Problems With Do It Yourself Sunroom Kits Probably the most common problem with a do it yourself sunroom kit is that the person who ordered it is simply not prepared for the type and amount of work that is involved. If you are not absolutely certain that you have the time and know-how to install the kit you should think twice before attempting it. Also remember that if you are doing the installation yourself the work is not going to be covered by a guarantee of some kind. The materials will be but the actual construction itself will not be. Plus if you do make an error any damages to your home may not be covered. In fact it is a good idea to check with your homeowners insurance policy before deciding to install your own sunroom so that you know whether or not you are covered for accidents that damage your home or cause injury to yourself or others. Otherwise your savings could quickly become extremely costly if you have an accident.
Your sunroom manufacturer will probably recommend that if you expect your sunroom to see regular use you hook it up to your homes heating and cooling system. Any occasionally-used however can be constructed with an independent climate control system. Designing Your Sunroom When you are in the designing phase of your sunroom project your sunroom manufacturer will need information about the sun exposure of the location where the sunroom will be located. Knowing the sun exposure will let your sunroom manufacture determine the best kind of high performance glass to install in your sunroom. While your sunroom manufacturer will undoubtedly have a large collection of standard sunroom designs from which you can choose most sunroom manufacturers will be happy to create a custom design.
