Our staff quite often fields lots of Sunroom questions, so we thought we’d share a few of them here in case you’re considering adding one to your home.
How much do sunrooms cost? This is usually the first, and hardest question to answer because it varies from project to project. Just like buying a car, a house, or that next big screen TV, there are many things that contribute to the pricing. In this case, the square footage, where it’s being built, and the type of sunroom all influence the price. For the sake of simplicity, most sunroom ballpark pricing starts at $30k. We have years of experience estimating jobs and working with budgets, so give us a call for a custom quote.
Do you need a building permit? Yes. Adding a sunroom is really no different than any other addition you’d be planning for your home. You’re essentially increasing the footprint of your home with livable space by adding to the existing structure so a permit is required. No need to worry though, we’re well versed in this process and can help homeowners gather and submit all the necessary paperwork to make this a pain-free process.
Do sunrooms have foundations? More often than not sunrooms do require a foundation. A solid foundation ensures that everything built above it is strong, level, and ready to stand the test of time.
What options should I be aware of? Again, like buying that new car there are many considerations. You may want to start the process by looking at the different sunroom styles. Most options fall into two main categories: Roof styles and interior material types. These two areas hold the most influence over the look and the cost associated with your new sunroom.
