Adding to or renovating your home can be a big job, even if the added square footage isn’t. When it comes to projects like sunroom construction, you will want to know what to expect. There are many different steps in this process including getting the necessary designs and permits and preparing the space for the construction itself.
Designs and Permits
The first step of sunroom construction is getting the right design. It is a good idea to hire a professional to help you make the design and, many times, these pros can help you find the right contractor and get the right permits for the job. Sometimes you can even find one company to help you do it all and save yourself some time and hassle.
Once you have the design, you need the right permits to get the project done, legally, in your local area. This can be a time consuming and frustrating process, or it can be quick and easy. If you hire a pro to help you with it, then you can be better assured that all the right paperwork has been filed and the committees granting permits have all the necessary information.
Preparation and Building
Once the designs and permits are finalized, it is time to prepare the property for the building phase of the construction. This means removing any landscaping that is in the way, leveling the area out and putting in a foundation among other things. Your contractor can help you determine what specific processes will apply to your project.
The building phase includes putting in all the walls, electrical and plumbing that is needed for your sunroom. Not every construction project will need each of these, but some will and it is a good idea to know the timeframe your contractor is working on.
Sunroom construction is a big project and knowing what to expect during each of the phases can help you have peace of mind that it is all going according to plan and budget.
