Keeping Water Out Of Your Sun Room

Mar 4, 2008
Building on rooms to our residence is done all the time. It allows more living space and usually will add value to the residence Added square footage is always a nice thing.

One of the best things home owners are adding today is sun rooms. Numerous house owners are building on these rooms rather than decks because of there ability to be used all year.

They allow a well lighted and cheery spot to rest and enjoy looking at the outdoors without actually letting the outside in. When it is too hot, you might enjoy the sunshine while staying in the cool of air conditioning. In the cold you can see the full beauty of snowfall and never get chilled.

Sun rooms are often times prefabricated. This means they are manufactured and all the sections are ready to be constructed when they get to your house. This will be the situation the majority of the time, and it is standard that they will come with warranties. As with most products that are factory made, warranties will be different. You should read the warranty very carefully.

A vital thing that a warranty should cover is leaking. If a sun room leaks when it rains or snows, it is usually going to be where the sun room's roof meets the existing home roof. They are frequently constructed from different materials and many times this could be the cause. If you have an existing problem with the roof of your residence that is creating the leak, the guarantee might not cover fixing it or any damage.

The guarantee will just cover leaking that is caused specifically from the materials related to the added room or if the building of the sun room was not done correctly. If it is a problem with the materials supplied in the room, the manufacturer should be responsible.

If it is leaking due to bad installation, the builder who assembled it should be responsible. Often times the manufacturer and the installer work together. Once you put in the flooring and furniture is added to the room, water damage might affect all these items if the room starts leaking.

There are several good ideas to follow before having a sun room installed. Get several estimates for a sun room before you buy one. Check to see if installation is extra or if you have to get your own installer. If you do employ your own builder, check with their past clients to make sure their work is good. Be positive they are licensed and insured and that they will come back if you have problems.

Be cautious if an installer wants full payment up front. Never provide full payment until the room is finished and you are convinced that the work was done expertly and checked for any leaking before signing any documents. When a sun room is added on to your house correctly, it can allow you a lot of enjoyment and should be a great addition to any dwelling place.
