If you’ve ever had a bathroom or kitchen remodeling services provider build an additional room in your home, then you know what a big project it can be. Even if you’re just shopping around, collecting quotes from different contractors, it’s not hard to see that these types of construction projects cost a pretty penny. There is one addition, however, that offers a cost-effective balance to costly home remodeling projects while still giving your home an excellent transition between your indoor and outdoor living areas. We are, of course, referring to sunrooms.
Since 1985, our professionally certified and experienced designers and builders at Empire State Builders & Contractors have completed numerous sunroom additions to countless homes in the local area, and we offer the following tips to help your own project get off on the right foot.
Today, sunrooms can come as a customized build from a home remodeling contractor or as a pre-fabricated addition. While there are arguments in favor of either one, the decision to choose one depends mainly on your own needs. Customized sunrooms offer more freedom and versatility because you can add in as many features and amenities as you want. The main drawback is that the price of a fully-customized sunroom is almost as much as a complete addition.
On the other hand, pre-fab sunrooms can save you on money but might not carry some of the things that you want to include. It’s important to note, however, that pre-fab sunrooms are mostly upgradeable to accommodate any future upgrades you may want to install.
Like most construction projects, sunroom additions require building permits from the local authorities. Your contractor can handle all the important paperwork (for a fee) for a hassle-free project. The price of sunrooms can be as low as half the price of a typical addition but this is mostly because it doesn’t have to have all the features of an actual room, such as electrical connections and indoor heating and cooling. You can customize your sunroom to include these features but they are generally not required.
