Sunroom / August 5, 2018 / Baptiste Allain
This step could be very beneficial to you in so many way the more informed you are the better off you stand when it comes time to begin the construction of your new sunroom. Several companies specialize in the design and construction of sunrooms and do-it-yourself kits. These kits which are the least expensive way to build your new sunroom come already pre built in a modular type fashion these kits are also massed produced which doesnt mean you cannot alter it in any way customization of your sunroom kit may increase the cost of the sunroom. When searching to purchase a sunroom kit you are going to want to provide the manufacturer you are dealing with as much information as possible.
This task is fairly easy to accomplish. You can either look your local agency up in the phone book and give them a courtesy call or go down to the local office where they will be more than happy to assist you in explaining the local zoning laws and building codes that may or may not affect the construction of your new sunroom. They may even be able to help you find a local contractor that they have had do business for them in the past or even give you multiple contractors by printing you out a list of certified contractors that work in that local area that are very proficient in the zoning laws and building codes in your neighborhood.
Not only are you providing the labor but you are also cutting out the middle man in the process of building your sunroom. This allows you to save money on the materials as well. Plus depending on the do it yourself sunroom kit that you choose you can also save money on future energy and maintenance costs. First understand that the price of a do it yourself sunroom kit will vary depending on your homes particular situation. For example if you are choosing to build a small aluminum sunroom on top of an existing deck or cement slab it will be much less expensive than building a block foundation sunroom with more windows and wood framing. If you have an existing deck or slab then it makes sense to choose that location for the sunroom because it is already properly graded and prepared. In that case you can measure the deck or slab and get the proper measurements for ordering your kit.
