Installing a sunroom can bring beauty, increased space and property values. What does it take to make it happen? With more than 50 years of experience in constructing custom sunrooms, Dulando Screen & Awning knows exactly what’s required to produce excellent results. This article will address what is involved when planning a sunroom installation.
Choosing the Right Sunroom Contractor
Sunrooms are a structural change to your home, so bringing in a professional is essential. You’ll get the best results if you work with an experienced sunroom contractor instead of a general contractor. These specialized pros know their products, procedures, and all the relevant regulations. That’s why Dulando is ready to create a custom sunroom with minimal fuss and maximum wow.
Don’t hesitate to ask for references when selecting a sunroom builder. A reputable sunroom contractor won’t be offended. They’ll be happy to provide references and answer questions. When you decide to work with them, you can also expect a clear contract and excellent customer service.
Deciding Sunroom Building Materials
Sunroom designs and materials vary, so weigh your options carefully. After all, choosing the right mix ensures you get a sunroom that meets your needs, appeals to your style, and fits your budget.
- Sunroom Framing Materials – Wood, vinyl, and aluminum are common framing materials in Florida.
- Windows – Windows may be sealed or operable, and there are many kinds to choose from. The most popular sunroom windows in Florida are acrylic, glass & vinyl.
- Sunroom Roofing – Roofs also come in a variety of styles and materials. At Dulando, we recommend Structall Building System’s Snap-N-Lock Insulated Panels. These clever panels surround an energy-efficient foam core with a skin of rolled aluminum and quickly snap together to create a waterproof seal. They can be used for almost any roof and easily fit wiring and other desired features. They’re durable, weatherproof, and come with attractive, easy-to-maintain finishes. They can also be topped with shingles or siding.
- Additional Features – Adding desirable features when you add a sunroom is easy. Installing electricity, climate control, skylights, and more in a sunroom is certainly possible.
The cost of adding a sunroom can vary. It depends on numerous factors, including your location, the size of your sunroom, and the materials you want to use. The condition of your home and how you want to connect the sunroom to your home will also have an impact. Be careful. Not all sunroom building materials are created equal. Sometimes, the cheapest price is not the best quality when building a sunroom.
