    5 Tips for Buying a Sunroom

    5 Tips for Buying a Sunroom

    Buying a sunroom is an investment that requires research in order to make an informed decision.  Here are a few tips to consider while choosing your sunroom.

    Meeting – Don’t accept a price for a sunroom (or any home improvement) over the phone.  A quality contractor will want to meet with you, measure the desired space, and give you a choice of materials. If you are offered a price over the phone you will likely end up with a low quality product and questionable workmanship.

    Foundation – Sunrooms can be built on a code compliant deck or patio.  You may choose to reinforce your deck or patio for added strength. If you don’t yet have a deck or patio you will have that price factored into an estimate.

    Electric – Protect your home by choosing a sunroom that is manufactured with built-in electric raceways that meet national code, such as Betterliving® Sunrooms.

    Screens – Make sure the sunroom’s screens are glare free as to not obstruct your outdoor view. Black aluminum screens minimize glare and are stronger than fiberglass screens.

    Warranty – Choose a sunroom manufacturer that offers excellent warranties. Also check with your contractor to make sure there’s an acceptable workmanship guarantee.
