Sunroom / July 19, 2018 / Odo Vaillancour
If you have an existing deck or slab then it makes sense to choose that location for the sunroom because it is already properly graded and prepared. In that case you can measure the deck or slab and get the proper measurements for ordering your kit. But if you dont have a slab or deck already then you will need to decide on the proper location for your sunroom. You will also need to grade and prepare the area before you can begin construction. This obviously changes the amount of work that you will be requiring of yourself when installing your do it yourself sunroom kit. Of course you could always hire a contractor to put in the slab for a block foundation sunroom and then build the rest of it yourself.

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.
