Among the many benefits and pleasures of owning a sunroom is making the most of the outdoors while eliminating almost all of the discomforts such as direct sunlight, inclement weather, insects and other drawbacks to being outside.
Homeowners choose a sunroom for the value and freedom it adds to their lifestyle, but a sunroom is also a smart financial investment, adding tangible value to your home on resale.
Sunroom additions rank in the top 7 home improvement projects, according to a recent Remodelors Council report. It adds more space to the home and increases the homes’ curb appeal on resale, helping the sunroom to return what realtors estimate as 70-100% of its original investment value, depending on location and other factors.
A quality sunroom is the most important factor for determining if your sunroom will achieve a high rate of investment return. A quality sunroom also means that it will look good and last a long time, providing a lifetime of use for a one-time investment.
A sunroom is also an attractive investment option over a traditional room addition (standard roof, studs, drywall, windows, electrical, integrated heating/cooling systems). After the foundation is complete, the sunroom can be assembled and installed in days – compared to the weeks or months of a traditional room addition – and at a fraction of the cost. Compared to an average cost of $80,000 or more for the standard room addition, the average sunroom can be built for approximately 10-15% of your home value.
The sunroom brings the outdoors to you with a flexible space of your own for exercise, family recreation, relaxation, a spa, computer room, sewing room… the list goes on. A sunroom is a healthy addition to a relaxing and stress-free lifestyle for the entire family.
You’re investing in more than a sunroom… you’re investing in your heath and family life. Which should give you years of return on your investment and great peace of mind.
