Many people consider sunrooms as their favorite part of the home and for good reason. Not only is it a practical way to expand the living space without the hassles of traditional construction, but it is also a wonderful means to enjoy the beauty of nature without stepping outside.
Just like other home additions, however, sunrooms come with some pros and cons. Sadler Building Corporation, your dependable remodeling contractor, explains more:
As the name suggests, sunrooms bring in the warmth and light of the sun because they come with glass walls or large windows. This makes the space bright and inviting. Furthermore, while it isn’t the same as a greenhouse, it offers a great home for your plants as they can bask in the sun, regardless of the season.
Sunrooms are also versatile. You can turn it into a quiet nook where you can relax with a book or an entertainment area where you can host mini-parties. The possibilities are endless – all is left is to let your creativity soar. As your top semi custom home builder, we can turn your dream sunroom into a reality.
Because sunrooms are surrounded by glass panes, privacy can be an issue. They can provide you with stunning views of your beautiful outdoors, but this also means neighbors and passersby can see in. You can use window treatments to add some privacy. Bear in mind, however, that sunrooms are meant to bring the light in.
Additionally, there are some sunrooms that are not energy-efficient. Three-season sunrooms, for one, lack insulation, making them inefficient during winter. Unless you’re building a four-season sunroom, which is fully-insulated and has a heat source, you need to prepare for temperature changes.
Nevertheless, a sunroom is still a worthwhile investment, especially with the right mix of function and beauty. As a certified custom home builder, Sadler Building Corporation ensures that you enjoy the long-term benefits of a sunroom, guiding you through every step so you can make sound decisions for your project.
