In the land of Southern California’s endless summers, a sunroom addition can add a whole new dimension to the way you live. Typically, a sunroom is a glassed-in living space attached to a home – perhaps as an addition off a family room, dining room, or living room – that is accessible from indoors. A sunroom is perfect to use during mild weather, and can easily be converted to a year-round living space when it is designed to be heated and cooled.
Some Things to Consider in Planning a Sunroom Addition
Because you live in a relatively hot climate, the benefits of a sunroom can be maximized when it is situated with an eastern exposure. This is because your addition will be primarily in the sun in the morning and shaded for the rest of the day. It is also important to consider how trees provide crucial shade at various times of the day. A natural canopy can multiply the enjoyment of a sunroom several times over.
Deciding what materials to build a sunroom out of should be considered as well. Vinyl is a popular choice, as it is less expensive, requires little upkeep, and offers an excellent value for overall strength and insulation. Aluminum is another option but can be more expensive and won’t provide as much insulation. Like aluminum, wood is a more expensive choice and requires periodic maintenance. However, wood may be the most suitable material if you want to attach screen mesh in addition to, or instead of, glass windows.
