  • Opening Intro -

    There are great reasons to add a sunroom to your home, including having more exposure to sunlight to regulate your body's natural body clock.


A sunroom is an excellent place for having houseplants, and in some cases, you can grow vegetable plants in the space. However, there are several things that you must consider before you build the sunroom.

Hire a Knowledgeable Designer

If you are adding a sunroom to your home, then it must have the proper design that meets local building codes. You may want to add a sunroom onto the back area of your home where there is a sliding patio door, but it is also possible to remove solid walls from the sides or the front of a home. A great designer will give you several plans for a sunroom so that you can choose the one that is best for your needs.

Find a Contractor

Finding a contractor who can manage the sunroom building process is imperative. A knowledgeable contractor understands various types of remodeling projects, and this person can manage all of the other experts who must work on the sunroom. Your contractor is responsible for creating blueprints for the sunroom to apply for the local building permits.

Installation of Wiring

While a sunroom is a place with a lot of natural sunlight, you will still need wiring in the space for lamps, fans or electronic gadgets. Hiring electricians with the proper training is essential when you are adding a room to a home. You must make sure that the electrical switches, outlets and wires are installed correctly to avoid any problems from dangerous fires or brownouts.

Proper Window Installation

A sunroom will have numerous windows or skylights so that natural sunlight enters the space. This requires the proper installation of the window frames and panes of glass. Window installation is a specialized job that requires the expertise of a glazier who fits the glass into the spaces correctly. When the windowpanes fit properly, you won’t have a problem with the loss of climate-controlled air or drafts.

Create a Work Plan

Before you add a sunroom to your home, create a work plan that includes all of the steps required for hiring experts, applying for permits and buying the materials. You should also know how long the project will take to complete. In addition, have a written contract that explains the cost of the renovation project.
