FAQ

A sunroom is a pre-fabricated wall and roof system added to your home to provide added enjoyment of the outdoors and extra living space. They are made of maintenance-free materials, predominantly aluminum but also vinyl and fiberglass. The wall sections are typically custom made, no greater than five feet in width. Each section contains a side sliding window, beneath the window is the “kneewall” which is built with a solid panel or tempered glass. If extra height is desired, “transom glass” is added to the tops of the windows and doors Sunrooms come in two types: three season (single glazed windows) and all-season (insulated wall and windows). Typically the roof is made with insulated aluminum panels that come in varying thickness. Thicker panels have more insulation and can span farther. Sunrooms have typically differed from solariums because they don’t use glass in the roof. This line has blurred in recent years with the introduction of polycarbonate roof systems for sunrooms. Solarium walls typically have a great deal of fixed glass with the occasional casement window while sunroom walls will typically consist of corner-to-corner side sliding windows.
Sunrooms are used for many great reasons: entertainment, place to relax, room for my pets, TV room, enjoy the outdoors and seasons… the list goes on and on. Finishing touches like beautiful flooring and wicker furniture help create that perfect retreat.
There are a lot of variables: Is a new deck required? Would you like a three season or all-season? Is there an obstruction, for instance a water spigot, that needs to be moved? An installed 12 x 12 three season sunroom will start around $15,000 while all-season sunrooms will start around $25,000.
There have been many studies and opinions published in renovation magazines about the value of major renovations like kitchens, bathrooms and sunrooms. Check out resources like Remodeller magazine and search for their Cost vs. Value report. Sunrooms are often in the top ten for return on investment, recouping at least 50% of your investment. There are factors that can effect your return on investment, like where you live. But the real return on investment is the improvement in your lifestyle. Your sunroom will quickly become the favourite room in the house, your very own private retreat. You can’t put a price on peace and tranquillity.
The actual installation can take as little as two days for a three season patio room or 3 days for an all-season sunroom. Additional time will be required if you are building an A-frame style sunroom, a new deck is required, a service (i.e. gas meter, water spigot, bathroom fan etc.) needs to be moved, or there is some other complexity to the project. Often there can be delays obtaining the building permit or zoning approval. Your contractor will not order material until the permit is issued after which you have to contend with the backlog at the factory. So if you are planning to build a sunroom and hope to enjoy it for the summer, get started early!
If your deck was built to building code specifications, there is a good chance it will suffice. Open decks are built with a slope away from the building, so even if it is code compliant it will need to be levelled. Deck blocks will not do. Your deck needs footings, typically concrete piers deep enough into the ground to not be lifted when the ground freezes. In southern Ontario, that is usually four feet, in colder climates it will be deeper. Imagine the damage to the sunroom or even your house when an unfooted deck heaves upwards in freezing temperatures.
Yes. Often your contractor will include the drawings and filing for the permit as part of their price to you. Contractors do not get enough credit for the time and effort it can take in getting a permit.
