Sunrooms are a great addition to your home not only due to the extra space they provide, but also to the added value they give your home. These porch conversions can significantly boost your curb appeal, but there’s a few things you need to know before investing in one. BEE Window® lists five things you should remember.
1. Watch the Windows
Your sunroom’s performance depends entirely on the windows it has. You have the choice to either go for a static window or one that opens up. Just make sure that the windows you’re installing have a high ENERGY STAR® rating so that they prevent harmful UV light from getting in while still allowing ample daylight.
2. Check the Glass Package
Your patio enclosures should have windows that boast high heat and light resistance since your sunroom will be exposed to it everyday. Our windows boast dual-pane i89 Energy Saver glass systems that are guaranteed to reflect harmful UV light and make your sunroom energy-efficient for a very long time.
3. What Material Will Be Used?
We recommend choosing vinyl for your sunrooms instead of traditional wood and cedar. Wood is susceptible to moisture and heat damage, which is a common occurrence since it’s always exposed to sunlight and elemental damage. Vinyl can easily mimic the appearance of wood while also being virtually immune to elemental damage.
4. Should You Add a Skylight?
The skylight is actually an optional choice and including it is entirely up to you. You have to make sure, however, that the ceiling glass panes boast a higher ENERGY STAR rating since this is the part of the sunroom that will be constantly exposed to sunlight.
