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.
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.
These are the least expensive options because they are able to mass produce them and package them at a savings to them which they will then pass on to you. However that doesnt mean that you cant find the right kit for you and the design that you have in mind. If you find that the standard kits you can find dont fit the sunroom that you are looking to create then you can certainly get a custom kit created but you need to realize that it will cost more to do so. In order to get a quote for the sunroom kit you want to order you will have to provide them with the measurements that you have selected for the design. This doesnt just include the dimensions of the sunroom itself; it also includes knowing how many windows you will have and where they will be placed. You will then also have to choose the materials that you want the sunroom to be built from and the types of windows that you want.
