Expanding living space to a home has both short- and long-term benefits. A sunroom is a pleasant space for current owners and can be a beneficial selling factor if the owners decide to move. There are many options for adding a sunroom-like space to a house. Deciding on the size and design of a sunroom or garden structure, as well as the building materials used, can be overwhelming. By working with a Crystalia Glass LLC every homeowner will get the most benefit from new room.

Once you decide to move forward with a sunroom, primarily, you need to determine how you plan on using your space. Most people initially think of sunrooms as a place to get away. But there are so many other possible ways to use your new room. Some options include entertaining, or for use as a home office, spa, or exercise room. Often, customers who plan ahead find that their new sunroom becomes the most used room in their home.

The secondary step is to select the type of sunroom you want. If you decided on how you plan to use your room, this should help you make this decision. The glass and screen enclosure will extend the use of the sunroom from early spring to late fall. If you are looking for an expanded family room, dining area or exercise room to use year-round, an insulated sunroom is what you will need. Today’s higher quality sunrooms can be purchased with insulated glass and feature thermally efficient framing so they can accommodate nearly any use.

You will also need to consider the room’s view. Full length glass gives homeowners the best view of the outdoors. You should also consider your climate. If it is sunny most of the year, you may need sunroom blinds, tinted glass and air conditioning to control the temperature in your sunroom. If you plan on using your room in the winter and during severe weather, you may need to heat the room and also include insulated glass.

The next consideration is the size of the space that you want and will need for how you plan to use your room. Going into other rooms in your house and taking their measures can be helpful in serving as reference points. This will help you get a better idea of the space that you will need.

TYPES OF SUNROOMS

Generally, sunrooms can be divided into two basic categories – three-season sunrooms and four season sunrooms. How you plan to use your sunroom and available budget will guide which option you choose.

Three season Sunroom

Usually are constructed with single glazed glass and screens. Some companies offer optional tinted glass and shading systems to reduce glare and the effects of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation. Single pane glass can shield occupants from wind and offers some protection from moderately warm or cool temperatures but offer very little protection against extreme temperatures.

  • SGL – 1116
  • SGL – 90

Four season Sunroom

Sliding Glass Door systems are equipped with double paned, insulated glass and when used in conjunction with a dedicated or zoned heating and cooling system, can make the room available for use every day of the year.

  • SGL – 200
  • FGL – 200

CHOOSE A GOOD SUNROOM COMPANY

Beware majority of sunroom suppliers that purchase standard sized components such as doors and windows from other manufacturers and then use filler pieces to fit and cover gaps to provide you with a “custom” sunroom. This approach can lead to poor aesthetics and a look that doesn’t match the rest of your house.

A truly custom sunroom by definition, is manufactured for a specific customer taking many factors into account including existing house construction, customer taste, intended use and available space.

Look for a company that maintains an engineering staff. This provides the flexibility to employ custom manufacturing. Custom manufacturing means that all walls and windows are built to the customer’s specifications.

A company’s warranty is only as good as the company itself. Make sure the company has been in business for a number of years or more. Even a lengthy warranty can be short on protection so make sure you know what is covered and what is not.

Customers’ feedback speaks about the quality of systems and service the company provides. Make sure to visit their showroom and ask for the references, that way you will know what are you going to pay for.

SUNROOMS OPTIONS & UPGRADES TO CONSIDER

Tempered glass offers safety and better insulation than regular glass panels for the sunroom. This glass option promotes safety and can help lower the energy costs associated with heating and cooling your sunroom.

Although there have been improvements in glass technologies, try to work with a sunroom company that also offers custom blinds and shades that were made specifically for use in a sunroom. Shades and blinds are desirable if your sunroom will be exposed to direct sunlight or if you desire more privacy.

The obvious, immediate value that sunrooms offer is that they provide a place to relax and add living space to your home. It is important to remember that sunrooms are also a sound investment. A well-built sunroom will typically return more than 70% of your investment at resale.
