Tips To Avoid Water Damage In Sunrooms

Nov 2, 2007
Adding rooms to our homes is a common practice. It gives more living space and usually adds value to our homes as well as more square footage. One of the most popular things people are adding today is sunrooms.

Many are adding sunrooms instead of decks because of there ability to be used year round. They provide a bright and cheery place to relax and enjoy seeing a lot of the outdoors without actually letting the weather in.

When it is too hot, you can enjoy the sunshine while being in the cool of an air conditioner. In the winter time you can have access to the full beauty of snowfall without ever getting cold.

Sunrooms are many times pre fabricated structures. This means they are pre designed and all the parts are ready to be put together on your property. This being the case most of the time, it is normal that they should come with warranties. As with any product, which a sunroom is a product since they are manufactured, warranties can differ.

You should read the warranty very carefully. One thing that the warranty should cover is leaking. If a sunroom leaks when it rains, it is usually going to be where the sunroom's roof meets the existing house roof. They are made from different materials and sometimes this can be a problem.

If you have a problem with the roof of your home that is causing the leak the warranty may not cover repair or damage. The warranty will usually only cover leaking that is directly caused by the materials related to the sunroom or if the installation of the sunroom is faulty.

If it is a problem with the materials included in the sunroom, the manufacturer should be liable, if it is leaking due to shoddy installation, the contractor should be responsible. Once you have the flooring and furniture installed in your sun room, water damage can occur to all these things if the room starts leaking.

These are some good tips to follow before having your sunroom installed. Get several bids from contractors before you hire one. Check with their previous clients to see if their work is satisfactory. Make sure they are licensed and insured and if they use sub contractors, they should be licensed and insured too.

Be skeptical if a contractor wants full payment up front. Do not sign any release until the job is completed and you know the manufacturer of the sunroom and any sub contractors have been paid. Most of all make sure you are entirely satisfied with the room and the work.
