The term sun room has different meanings and connotations. Archadeck of Charlotte is a custom sun room design/ build company and even we use sun room as a term loosely. This blog will break down the options for you and the implications.
- Traditional Sun rooms are integrated into the back of the house and are heated living spaces. When they are added to a home, they count as square footage towards both your taxes as well as your property value. More simply put, they have a nice return on investment if you sell your home when the market is up due to the fact the room has heat and air and is therefore part of the home. They are another room in your home that simply have more windows than the others. They are used for entertaining and relaxing.
- There are several companies that “manufacture” sun rooms. These are very similar to the option above. The primary difference is they are pre-fabricated off site, often have energy-efficient windows and doors, but do not look like part of the house. It is obvious they were added on after the fact.
- Archadeck designs and builds sun rooms that fit the definition of the first type above by using “stick – built” construction on site and integrating the room into the existing house seamlessly.
- Archadeck also designs and builds sun rooms that do not have heat or air conditioning but are more of a “3 – Season” room. These rooms are designed to provide all of the qualities of the above spaces but are less costly. Not only do you save on the fact that you will not pay for HVAC, this room also does not require insulation, termite treatment, vapor barrier, and so forth.
