An unattractive or “ugly” sunroom that has things wrong with it will not increase the value of your abode. Before you begin, do research on local zoning laws and building codes to ensure you are able to go ahead with your project, even if you plan to add on to a base or porch that is already in place because some neighborhoods have restrictive covenants that need to be checked before you start construction. Next, decide whether you are going to build yourself or hire a contractor. This decision is very important because the result will have an impact on your abode’s value and taxes. If having a Denver remodeling contractor build professionally is the right choice, you should not have any trouble finding one to accommodate you. This will depend on your current abode, your financials, and your individual desires as to which one suits you best.
If you decide that you are going to build your sunroom on an existing base, like a porch or patio, you are going to need the area inspected. This will ensure that the existing structure will be able to handle the additional weight from the new room. Even though you are not altering the existing space of your abode, restrictive covenants need to be addressed for violations if the room is added. If you decide to alter the existing content of your home by adding your sunroom, which includes, heating, cooling, electricity wiring, plumbing, and other construction work it is imperative as said before to check with those local codes and laws before beginning the construction phase of your project.
Questions for your sunroom contractor
When choosing a Denver contractor you need to consider several factors like the length of time in business. Will they have plenty of references to give you? Please do not take the references they give you at face value, take the liberty, to call a few of their previous customers, and ask them what kind of experience they had with that contractor. In addition, the company you hire to construct your sunroom should be fully insured and bonded. This allows you to protect yourself against any damages that may accrue with equipment, materials, or workers. Does the company guarantee their work? Will they come to your house and does a free no-obligation estimate of the work that you want them to do? Does the company have a staff of certified employees that can handle individual tasks that need to be completed on your project, I.e. Electrician, Plumber, Mason? This will help ease your mind when choosing your individual contractor. Do not settle for the first contractor you see, shop around there are several different companies and manufacturers out there that build Denver sunrooms and do not let a contractor pressure you into acting any sooner than you are ready to.
The more information you obtain before beginning your project, the better the chances of the sunroom being constructed with no problems. Give Christie’s a call, we can help!
