How's Your Sun Room Holding Up

Mar 16, 2008
Building on rooms to a living space is common practice. It allows more space and adds more value to a residence Additional square footage is always a good decision. One of the most desired things house owners are adding today are sun rooms. A lot of house owners build on these rooms rather than decks due to there ability to be used always. They give a naturally lit and open spot to rest and view the outdoors without letting the weather in. If it is too warm, you have sunshine while you are in the cool of air conditioning. In the cold you can see the full beauty of snowfall without getting cold.

Sun rooms are often times prefabricated rooms. This means they are designed elsewhere and all the parts are meant to be assembled when they arrive at your home. This will be the case most of the time and it is standard that they will come with warranties. As with most products that are factory made, guarantees might have differences. You should read the warranty very carefully.

An important problem that the guarantee should cover is leaking. When a sun room leaks because of rains or snows, it is normally where the sun rooms roof meets the existing home roof. They are commonly made from different materials and this can be the cause. If you have an existing problem that is creating the leak, the guarantee will not pay for it. The guarantee will fix leaking created by the materials on the added room or if the construction of the sun room was not done right. If it is an impairment of the materials supplied in the room, the manufacturer should take care of it. When it is leaking because of bad installation, the builder who assembled it should be liable. Often times the manufacturer and the installer are the same company. When you get the flooring and furniture installed in the room, water damage may occur to all these items if the room starts leaking.

These are some wise ideas to follow ahead of having a sun room put on. Get several estimates for a sun room prior to buying one. Find out if installation is extra or if you have to hire your own contractor. If you do engage your own contractor, check with their previous clients to find out if their work is satisfactory. Make sure they are licensed and insured and that they will return if there are any issues. Beware if an installer wants full payment up front. Never sign any release until the job is ended and you are sure that the work was done correctly and inspected for any leaking before signing any receipts. If a sun room is put on a residence the way it should be, it will give you tons of enjoyment and is a lovely addition to any residence.
