Looking to Increase The Value and Comfort of Your Home? Here are 7 Ways a Sunroom Addition Can Bring Appeal Home




Looking for ways to add value to your home this year? 2018 adds a new beginning, but also adds a year of age to our homes. Whether updating, redecorating, or listing for sale, a sunroom can add value in spades. Here are 7 ways sunrooms increase the value of your home.

1- Increased Property Value with Smaller Investment - You can increase the size of your home more cost effectively by adding a sunroom than by adding a regular addition. The price per square foot to build a sunroom is lower, yet you still reap the benefits of the additional square footage on your property valuation. With design options from sleek aluminum, to efficient vinyl, to warm and inviting natural wood, there is a sunroom to meet every preference.

2- Increased Energy Efficiency- Energy-efficient windows in a sunroom can save you hundreds in bills, not to mention, the return on investment they produce. According to HGTV, you can recoup up to 90% of your costs when you invest in energy-efficient windows. Windows made of Conservaglass Select have a 100% higher heat resistance value than competitors, allowing them to efficiently keep your sunroom warm or cool just when you need it.



3- Increased Flexibility- Whether for your own enjoyment, or to entice potential buyers, having a space that can serve many purposes is a valuable asset. A sunroom functions beautifully as a living room, an office, a playroom, a craft room, a home gym, a study, a dining room, and so much more. Change it up as often as you like, to add a "new" room to your home. 

4- Increased Distinction- Most homes have kitchens, bathroom and bedrooms, but not every home has a sunroom to showcase. Having a sunroom sets your house apart, not only as it entertains your friends and family, but also as it stands against the market competition. We all crave a home that feels unique and memorable. A sunroom is the space that makes your house distinctly a home. 

5- Increased Longevity- Vitamin D has long been touted as a key to our health and vitality. A sunroom adds year-round exposure to that gorgeous sunlight, generating wellness and longevity. A home's value is linked to the homeowner's care and pride of ownership. The more vibrant we are, the better care we can take of our home, adding vitality to our lives and our homes.



6-Increased Appeal- What is more beautiful than sunlight? Whether reflecting off a pool, sparkling in a raindrop, or gleaming on fresh cut grass, sunlight adds beauty to everything it touches. A sunroom harnesses that beauty year-round, and stands as a beauty in its own right. With curved eaves, cathedrals, conservatories, or straight eaves, the structures are gorgeous to behold. The value of beauty in your life cannot be understated. 

7-Increased Updating- We all want to keep our homes up-to-date, but the time and resources it would take to remodel with every new trend would be staggering. Sunrooms have the unique distinction of being not only timeless, but also malleable to trends. With their instant brightening effect, they can add a modern feel to your home, and can also be easily redecorated. With walls of mainly windows, there's no need to repaint, re-paper or re-carpet when something goes out of style. Beautiful windows are always on trend, as is the natural world they reveal.

Creating an Outdoor Retreat

Protecting Your Outdoor Spaces During The Winter

Winter is here, which means that you should officially be checking off the outdoor winterizing that’s been on your to do list for months. Outdoor spaces can be a cherished secondary living space to us, especially given the level of time and money that we dedicate to the design and upkeep. When the spring comes, we often jump at the chance to set all of our outdoor items up, start planting, and restart lawn maintenance. But, when the leaves start falling and a chill hits the air, we long to hold on to those endless summer nights. For this reason, many people put off important maintenance required to preserve external assets. Striving to minimize damage to patios, decks, sunrooms and other outdoor objects should be at the top of your to do list during the fall each year. Preventative tasks will help prevent costly repairs or replacement. With a little bit of sweat equity or help from third parties that specialize in this process, you can assure that you are taking the appropria
