A sunroom is great for entertaining, relaxing and resale. The National Association of the Remodeling Industry estimates that across the nation, sunrooms pay back at resale more than 70 percent of the homeowner’s initial investment.
A typical sunroom is a 100- to 200-square-foot enclosure added onto an existing house, with single-pane glass and windows that can be opened to let fresh breezes in and shut to keep out wind and rain.
Sunrooms give a feeling of being outdoors while providing most indoor comforts. Some sunrooms make the perfect spot for a spa, complete with a hot tub, but that’s just one possible use. Other applications include entertaining friends and family and providing space for exercise or recreation, a home office or studio, or simply a tranquil spot to unwind with a good book.
Before buying, determine how you’ll use a sunroom. Year-round use likely will require supplemental heating and cooling as well as double-pane, low-e glass for optimal energy-efficiency.
Sunrooms often can be built where conventional additions can’t be because of building codes and zoning ordinances that restrict backyard additions. A sunroom isn’t considered a square-footage addition to your home; it’s considered a patio addition. A sunroom also can add living space in an area where there are underground obstacles to conventional construction.
